Yung Rapunxel

Album: Broke With Expensive Taste (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The first single from Azealia Banks' Broke with Expensive Taste album, the title refers to one of several of Banks' alter egos. "One personality is not enough for me," she told Q magazine. "I need to express myself through alternate fictitious mouthpieces. Sometimes I'm Yung Rapunxel, who is curvaceous and feisty. Then another day I might be Little Bambi, who is sexy and likes to show her bits but doesn't want to be touched."
  • The song contains an interpolation of Mary J. Blige's 2001 single "No More Drama."
