Red Flame is a song written by Lady Gaga, Azealia Banks, and produced by DJ White Shadow in 2012. It features Azealia Banks as the rapper. It is believed that the song was intended for ARTPOP, but did not make the final cut for the tracklist.

Background[]

“Red Flame” was originally planned to be included on Gaga’s 2013 album ARTPOP, however, due to creative differences, the track didn’t make the final cut.

On August 14, 2016, a 2:58 long demo leaked on Twitter, which included the section of the first verse that was already heard on a livestream done by Azealia in 2013.

"I worked with Lady Gaga, but I worked with Lady Gaga from afar. We worked via email and via Internet", Banks said. "We have a song called 'Red Flame' and a song called 'Ratchet', but I don't know what she's doing with it. She's going to release it when she wants to release it". Banks revealed some of the lyrics on UStream on February 12, 2013. A part of the song leaked on August 14, 2016.[1]

Lyrics[]

[Intro: Azealia Banks]
Uh
You know, ah
Ha
Let's go

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks]
Patent leather
6 inch, high heel
Ostrich, platform
Mary Jane, thirty-seven
Red flame (Yes girls, pump it)
Now walk, now walk, now walk
I wanna see you pump it
Now walk, now walk, now walk
Ha, don't be mad 'cause they always said you'd free-fall
I wanna see you pump it

[Verse 1: Azealia Banks]
Pump it, bitch, to the haters a verse
6 inch, lizard skin, alligator, the purse
Shoe game six, six and steipers and Birks
I like it, I perch
Vixon and viper the first
Viper the first
You like two and a third
Like who is this bird?
You like who in the fur?
You heard it a her
Little heffa in a flat 10 dollar skirt
Bitch, never spit the stack on the frock of the purse
The buzz of the block, why nah-nah be the word
The stock of the hills
Spit fire flame for real
When I vamp down the catwalk, I pump it for real
Liquorice lipstick, candy coated, the deal

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks]
Patent leather
6 inch high heel
Ostrich, platform
Mary Jane, thirty-seven
Red flame (Yes girls, pump it)
Now walk, now walk, now walk
I wanna see you pump it
Now walk, now walk, now walk
(Ha, don't be mad cause they always said you'd free-fall)
I wanna see you pump it

[Verse 2: Azealia Banks]
Pump this, promote this
I know you notice this skill
Notice these high boots plus the focus could kill
Beauty Bambi, young, determined and willed
No previews, baby, it's only premieres

[Bridge: Azealia Banks]
I don't, I don't kn-know what you want
But I know, kn-know that you don't want
None, no, you don't want none of me
No, not today
Not today, boy, don't misbehave
Okay, okay?

[Verse 3: Azealia Banks]
'Cause it's little A-B, Lady G-A-G-A
Tell your little DJ, better hit that replay
Listen up, my n*gg*, when I'm sipping Clicquot
Lemme hit that weed, hey, lemme feel that freak-ay
Finna pop a pill and get that feeling she chased
When I dip and plié
Gimme, gimme leeway
Bitches on my rhythm, off that Heem and he say
He remember me-ay
He remember me-member me

[Chorus: Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks]
Patent leather
6 inch high heel
Ostrich, platform
Mary Jane, thirty-seven
Red flame (Yes girls, pump it)
Now walk, now walk, now walk
I wanna see you pump it
Now walk, now walk, now walk
(Ha, don't be mad 'cause they always said you'd free-fall)
I wanna see you pump it
