Lady Gaga And Azealia Banks Collaboration, “Red Flame,” Leaks Online

Hasn't ARTPOP been through enough?

A hip-hop demo track featuring Lady Gaga and Azealia Banks has surfaced online, proving once and for all that the two artists were collaborating together before Gaga dropped her fourth studio album, ARTPOP, in 2013.

An official version of the song “Red Flame” was never released, though it’s believed it was supposed to be a track for ARTPOP.

Once Banks learned “Red Flame” had been cut from the album three years ago, she took to Twitter to accuse Gaga of stealing the demo.

“Make sure u let them know where u got the title for red flame from. U stole that from the demo I sent u,” she wrote in a series of since-deleted tweets.

“You can have it. Plenty more where that came from. Seriously… This one is free. Next time I’m charging.”

At the time, Banks also claimed the word “Artpop” was inspired by “Witch-Hop,” a term she coined to describe her unique genre of music.

The leak comes days after a radio DJ casually announced a single from Gaga’s long-awaited fifth studio album would drop sometime in the next 30 days.
