The rapper shared her unusual status on Instagram over the weekend.
In June this year, Azealia Banks confirmed rumours that she was going to collaborate with Grimes on her forthcoming album Fantasea II: The Second Wave. Last month, the Banks issued a status update via Twitter, stating that the album was nearly finished, with just two songs yet to be completed – one of which, she revealed, was the Grimes collaboration.
“Omg I’m listening to f2!!! All the songs are finished except lorelei and grimes song .” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes and oh yes!! Finish Paradiso two! But daaaaaaaamn there’s some heat !
However, yesterday (12 August) Banks shared an Instagram story suggesting the link up has not played out as expected. “Literally been sitting at Elon Musk’s house alone for days waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions,” Azealia Banks wrote. “I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home.”
