Count Contessa is a song by Azealia Banks from her second studio album "Fantasea II: The Second Wave". The track is produced by Lone. The version that was released in 2013 was intended to promote Fantasea 2 when it was a 2014 Mixtape. The version on the album will be reduxed.

Background[]

It was uploaded to SoundCloud on September 16th, 2013 and a music video by FUN! Magazine on December 8th, 2015.

On December 14, 2019, Azealia publishes the track through its own label (Chaos & Glory) with a new cover that had unveiled hours before in her Instagram stories.

Music and composition[]

Count Contessa is about a black female pirate with one eye and one leg. She's a woman with the physical strength of a man, who won a fist fight with “Muscle Mike”, according to Azealia’s tweets leading up to the song’s release.

Upon rejoining Twitter in 2022, Banks responded to a fan's tweet inquiring about the process behind creating the song — revealing that it was born out of an accidental LSD trip.

The instrumentation comes from the song Aquamarine by Lone.
