Today, the forward-thinking, outspoken American artist Azealia Banks launched the video for her new track “Wallace”. The track and video – taken from her critically acclaimed debut album “Broke With Expensive Taste” – was produced by Collins and directed by Nick Ace and Rob Soucy (in collaboration with Banks). The video was built on Google Cloud Platform and works exclusively on Google's Chrome browser, and is available to view here.

This groundbreaking, web-cam driven, interactive film features Azealia Banks like you’ve never seen before. Fans can interact via their web-cam device, instantly transforming their browser into a living mirror.

“Story makes technology emotional while technology makes story immersive,” said Leland Maschmeyer, Executive Creative Director and co-founder of Collins. “Collins believes marrying story and technology is as powerful as it is necessary. The team did a remarkable job finding the emotional heart of Azealia’s song and leveraging Google technology to make it uncommonly real and responsive. And Azealia supported it all."

“I’m such a huge fan of technology and creative new ways of interacting and engaging with fans, so this collaboration was perfect for me. Music videos are as much of an art form as the music itself. The more I can push myself in my creative endeavors, the better. Working side by side with this incredible team of tech-creatives was a truly unique and enjoyable experience, and I’m thrilled to be part of a potentially groundbreaking new “norm” in the future of making music videos,” said Azealia Banks of the project.

adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack
 Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.
