After teasing the collaboration for weeks, Blood Orange's "Chewing Gum" featuring A$AP Rocky has arrived.


Blood Orange's new album Negro Swan is corralling music fans from all corners of the market. On "Chewing Gum" he starts the proceedings with a voice recording of Project Pat giving a lecture on diamond fronts. The sample creates a weird enclosure where Dev finds himself mapping the pre-chorus with his bare hands. His exasperated expression of "tell me what you want from me" defines the beginning of the end for Dev Hynes, and his cohort A$AP Rocky.

A$AP's contributions to the record are monumental. He spits a solid 24-bar verse about the gag order he imposed on himself after parting ways with an unnamed lover. Though a pretty boy in essence, Flacko has become a budding sentimentalist in his late 20s. Of course his version of sentimentality suffuses elements of depravity too. You can't take the harlot out of a Harlemite, and with good measure.

Check out "Chewing Gum" and the rest of Blood Orange's Negro Swan right here. 

Quotable Lyrics:

No relatives, sentimental
It's detrimental, be compared to its relevance
She the type of chick to get right on the dick
Ride on the dick, when them lights switchin'
Back and forth, wall to wall, using jaw
Losing drawers, it's exhausting

-A$AP Rocky
