A$AP Rocky speaks on one of the recently-leaked tracks off his LP "Long.Live.A$AP," called "I Come Apart," featuring the unlikely artist Florence Welch.
One of the few songs off A$AP Rocky's highly anticipated debut album which did not leak more than a month early was his collaboration with indie artist Florence Welch of Florence & The Machine.
The song, "I Come Apart" came as a surprising effort between the singer and rapper, but A$AP Rocky says the collaboration happened naturally.
âWe did it separately but I worked with Florence and the Machine so honestly man, it was just organic,â A$AP told MTV News. âI look at it like anybody can collab with each other but it has to be right. You canât just force it. Where Iâm at at this time, I could probably work with anybody I could request to or wish to. Itâs not about that. Itâs really about working with people who fit your criteria, not only that, but compatible to you in some type of way. Whether itâs their charisma, their technique, their style, anything. I look at all that before I work with somebody. Thatâs why I donât just work with any artist.â
The Long.Live.A$AP rapper also spoke on stepping outside his comfort zone to please different sets of crowds,Â âSometimes, you have toâ¦I wanna sayâ¦settle and compromise cuz some artists are big in certain demographics and crowds and stuff and you gotta collab with that sometimes because itâs people who love you from that crowd,â A$AP explained. âThatâs why I did the song (âYellow Tapeâ) with Fat Joe, French Montana and Lil Wayne. That was to support people who love that kinda music. I make that kinda music at times if you check my album.â
A$AP Rocky's LP officially drops in two days, on January 15th.
