The rapper dropped his latest single, “A$AP Forever” featuring Moby last month, which debuted on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. However, we’re still waiting for Rocky to announce a release date for the album to drop.
This will be Rocky’s third studio album and the follow-up to his critically acclaimed AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP LP from 2015.
Aside from the “A$AP Forever” track, we know that Rocky has a song with Kanye West in the vault. Whether or not this song that Kanye mentioned during a tweet storm will be on Testing is unknown, but it wouldn’t be the first time Yeezy landed on a Rocky album. The two previously collaborated on “Jukebox Joints” from Rocky’s last album.
The RCA-signed MC announces this news just days after reports that A$AP Bari was arrested in London on sexual assault charges. This stems from a video that was leaked of the A$AP Mob member harassing and assaulting a woman in a hotel room last year. A$AP Rocky distanced himself from Bari following the accusations.
With the album now completed, fans should expect a roll out from A$AP Mob in the near future. Should the album drop this year, it’ll be amongst a number of big name releases for 2018, alongside Nas, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Pusha T, whose album drops on Friday.
