In a statement to HipHopDX, E1 Entertainment’s William Robillard Cole said, “Azealia Banks is an incredible artist who we are proud and excited to welcome to Entertainment one. I decided to sign her because her talent and music is undeniably brilliant. New music soon!”

Banks, who’s routinely in the headlines more often for her puzzling behavior than her music, later expressed gratitude for her fans via Instagram and explained how her “broken household” affected her.

“I come from a very broken household and When I was a little girl all I wanted was to be loved,” she wrote in the caption. “I’ve been all around the world but I swear I’ve never felt more understood, cared for and welcome than I have with you all. YOU are the loves of my life. I don’t need anyone else but my kunts. Thank you for everything.”
