Ladies and gentlemen, BANKS is back! I want to scream this from the rooftops, as I’m sure many other BANKS fans are doing at the moment. Today she released “Gimme” following a premiere on Beats 1 as the “World Record” with Zane Lowe.
It’s been almost two years since we’ve been graced with new music from this badass bitch (her words, just read the lyrics) and she does not disappoint. She teamed up with Buddy Ross (Frank Ocean, HAIM) to write this song and also joined forces with producers Hudson Mohawke (Kanye West, Drake) and BJ Burton (Bon Iver, Francis, and the Lights).
There’s a certain part of the production that reminds me of Justin Timberlake’s ‘My Love’. Like that song, this one also exudes sexiness. I love the signature BANKS darkness and fierceness in this track. She has this ability to put emotions and desires that we also feel into her music and to me, that’s what makes her music so damn catchy.
“‘Gimme’ is a song about getting what you want. It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies. I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter,” says BANKS.
