Ap Rocky Is Lovesick His Tropical New Track With Mura Masa
A$AP Rocky has been quietly prepping his third album, the follow-up to last year’s At.Long.Last.A$AP. In the meantime, he’s hopped on a lighthearted remix of UK electronic producer Mura Masa’s Lovesick Funk, aptly titled Love$ick.
Rocky contributes a couple bouncy verses to the dance-friendly track, which boasts a Caribbean beat and a playful steel drum instrumental. Along with rapping about pesky paparazzi and jetting off to Italy, he also addresses a relationship he had with someone in the industry (Kendall Jenner perhaps?): And now we industry lovers, they makin' enemies of us/ I mean sometimes when we in public, they drainin' the synergy from us.
In a statement to Pitchfork , Mura Masa talked about the collab, saying, 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.
