Why Isn't Azealia Banks' New Single On iTunes Yet?

She just deleted almost all tweets referencing the March 26th release date of "Yung Rapunxel," the first single off her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste. What's going on?

She unofficially released "Yung Rapunxel" on March 11th, posting it herself to Soundcloud.

But a delay is hardly unusual for Banks. Her debut album has been pushed back again and again in the past year.

The album was originally expected to come out in spring of 2012, but then was announced for a September 2012 release, and then pushed back to February 12, 2013. It's been pushed back yet again, this time with no solid date in sight.

It's likely that the delay of "Yung Rapunxel" is related to clearing samples on the track, namely Mary J. Blige's "No More Drama."
