Scissor Sisters and Azealia Banks (as Krystal Pepsy), “Shady Love”

The 20-year-old rapper with the best song of 2011 teamed up with the “pop rock, glam rock, nu-disco, electroclash” band for the first track to surface from the Scissor Sisters’ as-yet-untitled 2012 album. It’ll be officially available as a download on February 12, but in the meantime, this is its school play-themed music video about champagne and disembowlment. Nick Levine of NME goes more in-depth, if you need it.
