Heres How Ap Rocky Ended Up
A$AP Rocky may have the biggest hit of his career on his hands with 'Good For You,' which has hit at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, just a spot lower than the peak for 'F--kin' Problems' -- and it comes with a somewhat unlikely companion: Selena Gomez .
Still, he says the partnership came together with ease.
'They reached out,' he told MTV News at Lollapalooza on Sunday. 'She said she wanted me to f--k with it.'
And so he did f--k with it -- including the beat.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp0hWIO8DiU
'Me and my boy Hector [Delgado], we added to the beat. We added instruments and sh-t -- more bass, snares. I started singing on it. Produced it. Wrote it.'
Though this track differs a bit in sound and content from what fans are used to hearing from Rocky -- he makes eclectic-sounding music, but this is a pop favorite -- he says he didn't change the way he attacked the track from his normal methods.
'I don't think it's a different approach,' he explained. 'You just go in. Go for the kill. I mean, it wasn't the type of song you try to go into... It was just like me telling her, you sure you wanna go here with me? I gotta change the beat. I gotta talk my sh-t. My jiggy sh-t.'
