Mura Masa is currently prepping for his debut album. In anticipation of the LP, the producer has unleashed a new single, “All Around the World,” and it features none other than Desiigner. This single follows “1 Night” featuring Charli XCX and the Nao-assisted “Firefly.” Masa reveals that the rapper’s conceptual ideas were very different from the final result. He tells Complex: “I like to think I pulled a very good song out of him. Originally we sent him the beat and he kind of sent it back. I think he thought it was an EDM thing and he sort of had to do ad-libs over it. There were no verses. There were no lyrics. It was just him (mimics Desiigner ad-libs). I kind of had to dialogue with him, just carefully kind of persuade him in a traditional structure that he doesn’t really do.” Listen to the track below.
