Rocking long wavy hair, ‘212‘ rapper Azealia bares her toned midriff in a bejeweled bustier crop top, while a blonde-haired Ellie dons a printed ensemble and a pink-haired Charlotte looks funky in a sequined outfit.
The 21-year-old mermaid-haired firecracker gets risqué on the Sharif Hamza-lensed cover, with an inflated raspberry-coloured condom on the lips. Azealia looks hip in a Balmain jacket and Beyond Retro hoodie.
The 21-year-old Hip-hop firecracker rests her head on the chest of a dapper-looking Diplo, as they lay together on a sandy surface. The ‘212‘ rapper rocks a gold embellished Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, with gothic dark lips.
The 21-year-old rapper does a raunchy squat for the lens of Emily Shur, with a Mickey Mouse Todd Pearce for Love Bailey bag hanging low on her crotch. Azealia is further swagged-out in an Alexander Wang top, paired with Diesel Black Gold shorts and Pedro Garcia shoes.
Azealia points out to the magazine how her hit single ‘212‘ came about.
“Nobody was listening to my music. I had been dropped from [the English record label] XL. My manager dropped me. My boyfriend left me. I was starting to accept that my career was never gonna happen. So the song was just me, like, ‘Fuck y’all. Y’all not gonna help me? I’m gonna get it myself.’”, Azealia recalls to the magazine.
New kid on the block Azealia Banks channels androgynous fashion icon Grace Jones on the artwork for her upcoming EP titled 1991.
Sporting long curly red hair and vampy purple lips, the 20-year-old rapper flaunts her sensual dark complexion by going topless for the saucy art. Clad in a black leather skirt, with matching full finger elbow-long gloves, Azealia shades half her face in a broad-brimmed hat.
The EP is expected to have its digital release on 29 May and physical release on 12 June. Checkout the tracklist below:
