Interviewed while in Brazil on tour, the "212" performer said that she and Lady Gaga worked via email and internet on two songs, “Red Flame” and “Ratchet.” “I don’t know what she’s doing with it,” Banks said of the material. “She’s going to release it when she wants to release it and yeah, I’m really excited about it.
Banks also worked with Kanye West during a recent trip to Hawaii, but she was less than forthcoming on any details. “I just kind of went out to Hawaii and he said you should really come to the studio... “and yeah, just worked it out.” She also talked a little about working with Adele's producer Paul Epworth on her oft-delayed debut album, "Broke With Expensive Taste," which is now expected out in February 2013. She called him "very serious."
As we previously reported, Lady Gaga confirmed earlier this week that the new album, coming in 2013, will include a sequel to “Telephone.” No word on if Beyonce will be part of the "continuation" of the song.
