Tinashe – “Aquarius” Video

Tinashe turns 22 today and to mark the occasion, R&B’s latest sweetheart dropped a video for the title track of her excellent debut album Aquarius. While the video for “2 On” channeled ’90s dance movies and “Pretend” is a larger-than-life romance drama co-starring A$AP Rocky, “Aquarius” is all Tinashe. She directed the decidedly lo-fi video… More »

A$AP Rocky – “Multiply” Video (Feat. Juicy J)

A$AP Rocky debuted his new single “Multiply” tonight, along with a video for it. It’s the first solo track we’ve heard from Flacko since his debut album last year, LONG.LIVE.A$AP, which made him and the A$AP crew into certifiable rap stars. He debuted this song at Coachella earlier this year. It would make sense that… More »

Sam Smith – “I’m Not The Only One” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Although he entered the spotlight by singing Disclosure’s monster jam “Latch,” Sam Smith has become such an adult contemporary singer lately that it’s kind of crazy to think about a rapper throwing a verse on one of his songs. But that’s what A$AP Rocky has done, lending typically slinky bars to the beginning of Smith’… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Labor Day Weekend is upon us, and with it, the unofficial end of summer. So, in hindsight, what was the Song Of Summer 2014? “Fancy”? It was probably “Fancy.” What else even came close? “Anaconda” arrived too late, “Happy” peaked too early … ” “Rude”? “Problem”? Eh. Feel free to shout out your own Song… More »

Tinashe – “Pretend” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Tinashe’s biggest hit so far, the DJ Mustard-produced “2 On,” featured Schoolboy Q, and the rising R&B singer’s latest single from debut album Aquarius features Q’s buddy A$AP Rocky. “Pretend,” built on a gorgeous beat by “Drunk In Love” producer Detail, is a warm, spacious slow jam about suddenly falling into bed with somebody you… More »

Juicy J – “Scholarship” (Feat. A$AP Rocky) Video

Last year, Juicy J promised to give away a twerking scholarship, and then he gave a girl a $50,000 scholarship for non-twerking reasons. Today, he’s made a video for “Scholarship,” a song about paying strippers’ tuition money. It’s a theme for him! The song features A$AP Rocky, and it comes from last year’s Stay TrippyMore »

Watch A$AP Rocky Join Danny Brown Onstage At Wembley

This past weekend, Eminem played a huge show at London’s Wembley Stadium and brought Dr. Dre with him. As an opening act, Em chose fellow Detroit rap monster Danny Brown. And Brown got his own big spotlight-guest moment. Brown’s set included a guest appearance from A$AP Rocky, which is a good thing, not least because… More »

A$AP Mob – “Hella Hoes” Video

Danny Brown wasn’t thrilled to have his verse removed from “Hella Hoes,” the new A$AP Mob single, and it’s easy to understand why. For one thing, it’s unprofessional to delete a verse without telling the person who made that verse. For another, it’s a fun, splenetic song that would’ve only sounded better with Brown o… More »

A$AP Mob – “Hella Hoes”

Back in spring, Harlem’s A$AP Mob crew was planning to release a compilation called L.O.R.D.. For whatever reason, it never happened. But now, we’ve at least got a new posse cut from the crew. On the eerie and jagged new track “Hella Hoes,” the crews two famous members A$APs Rocky and Ferg, team up with… More »

Lykke Li – “No Rest For The Wicked” (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Lykke Li’s “No Rest For The Wicked” is great as-is, without extraneous rap verses. But hey, rappers have been loving Lykke at least since Drake sampled “Little Bit” in 2009, and A$AP Rocky already has a track record with (to borrow Tom’s description) “cinematically bummed” female singers — note his bizarre turn as JFK i… More »

Coachella 2014: The 8 Best Things From Friday

The first day of Coachella brought us the first Outkast concert since 2006, the fourth Replacements concert since 1991, and the first time Haim was on the festival grounds legally. (According to Este, the sisters have been hopping the fence since 2004.) It spawned thoughts in my brain such as “Wow, Chromeo is now famou… More »

Watch A$AP Rocky Debut A New Song At Ferg’s Coachella Set

Towards the end of a Coachella set that saw A$AP Ferg run through album cuts like “Cocaine Castle” and “Shabba,” he was joined on stage by A$AP Rocky who debuted a new track. The song starts off with a whispered intro (“When the real niggas die/fake niggas gonna multiply”) before escalating into hazy, bass-heavy posturing… More »

The Week In Pop: What Is Ed Sheeran Thinking?

In recent years, pop music’s landscape has been transforming more rapidly than ever. But even as genre boundaries collapse and notions of good taste invert and guitars become inherently retro, one archetype that refuses to die is the sensitive guy with an acoustic guitar. Note that American Idol’s prospective pop messiahs are now just a… More »

Lolawolf – “Jimmy Franco” Video (Feat. A$AP Rocky)

Zoë Kravitz, Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet’s daughter, is a model, and she did a pretty OK job playing Tempest in the movie X-Men: First Class. She also leads the synthpop trio Lolawolf. And in her group’s new video for their song “Jimmy Franco,” she and A$AP Rocky (who doesn’t rap on the song) snuggle… More »
