Rapper Azealia Banks wants to collaborate with former One Direction star Zayn Malik.
The “212” hitmaker recently apologised to Malik for an expletive-laden Twitter tirade she launched against him earlier this year, and is now open to working with him in the studio, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“I definitely would love to collaborate with Zayn. From here, I watched the ‘Naughty boy’ thing and I have always seen where he’s going,” Banks said.
“He’s definitely helped him get that sound, that sound that’s different but still cool, very relevant but it’s different and it’s new and special, which is something I think I do very well,” she added.
The 25-year-old star hit out at Malik a number of times on the social networking site. She first lashed out at the former One Direction singer in a racist attack, calling him a “curry scented b***h”.
Banks recently penned an open letter to Malik in which she said sorry for her Twitter tirade and she’s now explained why it was important to be so public with her apology.
“I actually apologised a couple of times, but I don’t think it got through to people. I think when the situation was still so fresh, people weren’t just not wanting to hear it.
“I guess I didn’t give the apology I thought people could really hear because there was just so much going on. And now that the coast is clear, I thought, ‘Let me tell you guys again what I meant, I’m very sorry’,” she said.
