"I'm now officially signed to E1 Entertainment!!" she captioned the post, which contains an audio clip of a clearly-excited Banks reacting to the news.

"I HAVE A HOME AGAIN... I’m crying . The Industry left me out on the street like a stray dog and now I have shelter again. 

"This is really making me cry I’m so happy and grateful and thankful for all of this and I promise I’m going to make the KUNTS so proud."

"Thank you guys so freaking much you don’t know how much this means to me @eone_music @williamrobillardcole."

In a separate lengthy Instagram post, Banks took a moment to thank her fans for their continued support before reflecting on her troubled past.

"I come from a very broken household and When I was a little girl all I wanted was to be loved," she wrote, "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."

Azealia, who recently reconciled with Nicki Minaj following their ongoing feud, announced her track ‘Anna Wintour’ as the first official single from her upcoming project, ‘Fantasea II’. 

Banks expressed interest in featuring the 'Anaconda' rapper on the song alongside Mel B of the Spice Girls.

Meanwhile, Azealia was recently embroiled in a beef with 'Bodak Yellow' rapper Cardi B after she called Cardi a "poor man's Nicki Minaj".
