Azealia Banks’ latest venture is soap for your butt—and people are loving it


Last week, Azealia Banks announced her latest project. No, it didn’t have anything to do Elon Musk. It has to do with bottoms.

Banks signal-boosted the new product on Instagram, advertising soaps for men (Bussy Boy) and women (Pussy Pop) through her skincare line CheapyXO, and asking volunteers to send before-and-after photos of their buttholes so she could document their progress. The product promises to “lighten and tighten,” and Banks said on Instagram that for the trial, “your butthole gotta be chopped, OK? I don’t wanna see no nice buttholes.” On her merch site, the ingredients are listed as “Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil, Lactic Acid, Vitamin C, Tea Tree Oil.”

While some people tweeted about buying the Pussy Pop soap (which is for the vagina), the Bussy Boy soap is the obvious favorite so far, especially within the gay community.

There haven’t been that many before-and-after photos posted yet, but there are related photos on her timeline if you dare to scroll. The bussy soap is just one product in a long line of Banks merch: Once upon a time she was selling vintage Judy Blume books and dick candles.

Banks posted a photo on Wednesday showing off her “soap money.”
