Watch: 'Van Vogue' by Azealia Banks
Directed by Rankin.
They worked together on 'Liquorice', and now Rankin has directed Azealia Banks' latest wet and wild 'Van Vogue' video. Considering her usual penchance for platform creepers, pasties, and general over-the-topness, the new video makes for a comparatively minimal affair with Azealia taking a 'smooth criminal' approach to film clip fashion by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and power-suit — so MJ. Of course there are glimpses of crazy-ass hairstyles and jewel-encrusted lips thrown in for good measure, along with some Snoop Dogg-worthy smoke tricks. She tweeted four hours ago, "S/o [shout out] to me for getting the weave wet... This mermaid life is real".
