‘ATM Jam’ Video: Azealia Banks Is Still Trying

It has been two years — two years! — since "212," a still-magical song that made Azealia Banks everyone's new favorite female rapper. She has mostly squandered that goodwill, thanks to a forever-delayed debut album (not totally her fault) and a series of unbecoming Twitter spats (pretty much her fault). It is not the happiest pop star story. But Azealia has not given up, and so here is the video for her Pharrell-produced single "ATM Jam." Bad news: Pharrell did not agree to cameo. Good news: It is way less scary than the last video. That is progress.
