New Music: Mura Masa feat. A$AP Rocky – ‘Love$ick’

A$AP Rocky gets “Love$ick” with Mura Masa.

The duo teams up on a remix to Masa’s “Lovesick Fuck” over a soulful and electronic, calypso-tinged, rap-infused banger of a beat.

“Now we’re industry lovers,” rhymes Flacko. “They making enemies of us / I mean, sometimes we’re in public / They draining synergy from us.”

The collaboration was recorded at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios. “Rocky was actually in London for a couple of days and I wanted to make him feel like I was taking the collaboration seriously, so I booked us in to Abbey Road, Studio 2, and we met up there for a couple of hours and he did his thing,” Masa told Pitchfork. “It was a hell of a good time hanging out in such a legendary space with him, very surreal.

“The track originally was about sex and how I was feeling after a particularly empty encounter with a friend told through a kind of twisted-pop, calypso, hip-hop dance track. Rocky kind of ran with that and took it to this lovelorn, exotic place. He totally injected his energy into it.”

Meanwhile, Rocky is injecting his energy into his third album, which he recently started working on.
