Azealia Banks offers up her chance for most random genre hybrid this week thanks to her cover of The Strokes’ “Barely Legal” from the Is This It? LP. Banks has payed respect to genres other than rap before such as her stellar cover of “Seventeen” by Ladytron and Interpol’s “Slow Hands” (see below for both).
Alright, so everyone knows the “Harlem Shake” by now thanks to the power of viral videos. Baauer has made his throne a top the Hot 100 this week thanks to the inclusion of YouTube video plays now tallied. For those who pay attention to electronic, trap, and indie music, “Harlem Shake” is nothing new, in fact, I moved on to other tracks by Baauer relatively quickly.
