While most of you have probably already heard the leaked version of Long.Live.A$AP, I’m sure there’s still at least one last song you’ve been eagerly anticipating. That would be this collaboration right here. Although relegated to being a bonus track on the deluxe edition of the album, this brand new track boasting the gifted talents of Florence Welch does not fail to impress. “I Come Apart” is unlike anything you’ve heard from A$AP Rocky before. Certainly his most ambitious undertaking to date, the song is all about the unraveling of a relationship at its seams and the repercussions that follow when trying to assemble the pieces back together. The key to this one is finding a balance between the soaring vocals of Florence and the whispering murmurs of Rocky as tries his hand at his best Kid Cudi impression. At times it may sound like A$AP’s heart truly isn’t set in the material, and it shows in his energy through certain portions of the track (that may be possibly due to a lack of experience with its subject matter). However, this one is still worth a listen for the British siren’s vocal prowess alone.
As you must know by now, A$AP Rocky’s debut album Long.Live.A$AP, drops this Tuesday, January 15th. I would be really cool if you checked it out to show your appreciation.
