Please don’t touch my “RAF.”
A$AP Rocky surprised fans on Monday (May 15) by debuting two versions of “RAF,” his Raf Simons-inspired collaboration with Frank Ocean, Quavo, and Lil Uzi Vert via blonded RADIO.
“It’s rare Raf when I wear Raf,” Flacko brags on the track. Quavo adds: “Raf Simons, all kind of crazy colors…Raf Simons, don’t lace ’em.” Meanwhile, Uzi boasts about having Raf “in my basement.”
The first version of “RAF” finds Frank flexing: “I get Raf Simons ’cause I’m gifted / That means sometimes, they give it, I don’t even want it.”
The second version includes an alternate verse from him. “I’m cold like I’m sick with the flu,” he raps. “I covered my face and I’m bloody, that’s Spring-Summer 2002 / Please don’t touch my Raf.”
It’s unclear where “RAF,” which follows Rocky and Ocean’s collaboration “Chanel,” will land. Some speculate that this could be the first single off Flacko’s forthcoming follow-up to 2015’s At.Long.Last.A$AP.
“RAF” wasn’t the only new song that Ocean premiered on Episode 6 of blonded RADIO. He also debuted the solo version of “Biking,” his Jay Z and Tyler, the Creator collaboration, which was first released last month.
