A$AP Rocky and Lana Del Rey are two of the years most promising new acts, which is why its no suprise that the two would pair up on a song, especially after expressing mutual love and respect for each other over the last few months.
While their leaked song “Ridin” was quickly pulled off the web last week, Rocky sat down with Billboard to discuss it, Lana, and his debut album dropping later this year.
On Lana he says:
“You didn’t know about me being a huge Lana Del Rey fan? That’s all I kept talking about all winter,” says the rapper. “… I love her! Mind you, we never even spoke to each other, and then in Complex [magazine], when she said I was her favorite rapper, I was like, ‘Oh fuck no, man. I gotta work with her! My dream girl acknowledges me!'”
On the Song:
“It sounds crazy so far… We were just gonna call it ‘My Bitch,’ but we’re not gonna get much play with that, so we called it ‘Ridin’.’ [The song] is some Bonnie and Clyde shit.“
He also confirmed that he will be working with Santigold, Pharrell and Hit-Boy on his debut. I’d like to hear that Santigold record!!
