British producer Mura Masa recently shared his new collaboration with rapper A$AP Rocky. Although the producer’s song “Love$ick” has been out for some time now, the latest version features a new verse from Rocky, where the Harlem rapper offers classic rap braggadocio along with some lines about being hopelessly in love. Check out the song above and read Mura Masa’s statement outlining how the collaboration came to fruition below.
Rocky was actually in London for a couple of days and I wanted to make him feel like I was taking the collaboration seriously, so I booked us in to Abbey Road, Studio 2, and we met up there for a couple of hours and he did his thing. It was a hell of a good time hanging out in such a legendary space with him, very surreal. The track originally was about sex and how I was feeling after a particularly empty encounter with a friend told through a kind of twisted-pop, calypso, hip hop dance track. Rocky kind of ran with that and took it to this lovelorn, exotic place. He totally injected his energy into it.
