Most of A$AP Rocky’s debut Long.Live.A$AP leaked before the new year, but there are still a few gems that haven’t been heard until now. The Harlem MC keeps things eclectic, teaming with Florence + the Machine’s Florence Welch on “I Come Apart,” one of four bonus tracks on the deluxe edition. Pretty Flacko raps and sings over the rattling production, while Flo chants the hook.
A$AP explained how the record came together. “[Florence] is actually a huge fan and she reached out [to me],” he told MTV News. “I knew about her from winning Grammys and stuff like that, but I’m not gonna sit here and lie—I wasn’t too in tune with the music, so when I found out she was fascinated with my style, that’s when the infatuation with her came. I just started doing research and I became a fan.”
After Long.Live.A$AP drops on January 15, Rocky will join Rihanna on her “Diamonds World Tour” starting in March.
