The rapper hopes their collaboration ends up on Gaga's next album.

Published September 5, 2012

Rising Harlem MC Azealia Banks has teamed up with Lady Gaga for a new collaboration after the two were tweeting in August about a potential meetup in the studio. However, Banks has now confirmed that the two have done a song together, but there's no guarantee that it will make Gaga's forthcoming ARTPOP album. 

"Yeah, I worked on a song for her," said Banks to Capital FM. "I don't know if it will make her record. I hope it will make her record, but we'll wait and see."

This isn't the first time the "212" rap-tress has crossed over to the pop arena. She did a verse for Lana Del Rey's "Blue Jeans (Remix)" and Scissor Sisters' "Shady Love." Gaga has also done a few collaborations with hip hop artists, including a recent duet with Kendrick Lamar on "PARTYNAUSEOUS."

While the fate of the collaboration is unknown, Banks is still working in the studio on her own album. After a tumultuous year of feuds and beefs, it seems like the star is ready to put the focus back on her art. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B.
