Azealia Banks - "Liquorice"

So, I really dug that "212" song by new female rapper/singer Azealia Banks, and in a previous post wrote about my feelings on the hype that's surrounding her.  Banks has a new track out now called "Liquorice", and it's safe to say I'm digging this one too.  While she does kind of reuse the same flow from "212", this song has a completely different kind of beat.  Helmed by Lazy Jay, the beat samples British-producer Lone's song "Pineapple Crush", an automatic plus for me since Lone's album, Emerald Fantasy Tracks, ended up on my top 25 albums of 2011 list.  It was a really great dance album that a lot of people slept on, but that's another story.  Anyway, the beat on "Liqourice" is fun and hyperactive and I'm really liking the way Banks layers her vocals over it to build the song up.  This is one of those songs that makes you wanna move, no matter how you were feeling before you pressed play.  Listen below.
