A$AP Rocky ft. Skrillex & Birdy Nam Nam - Wild for the Night

Posted 3 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Skrillex
Album:

Today, A$AP Rocky saw all of his hard work come to fruition with the release of his major-label debut album. An achievement like that calls for celebration; sure enough, we find the Harlem spitter going Wild for the Night on the project’s latest single. And who should join him in his revelry than… Skrillex? While he doesn’t seem like an intuitive match for Rocky’s syrupy aesthetic, the dubstep heavyweight’s reggae-informed rhythms and syncopated sirens provide a dope counterpoint to the emcee’s flow. French DJ crew Birdy Nam Nam round out the lineup, appearing by way of a vocal sample from 2011 cut Goin’ In. Feeling it? Then what are you waiting for—head out to your local record store (or, ya know, iTunes) and cop LONG.LIVE.A$AP, out now via RCA Polo Grounds.

Update: We have added the Chris Robinson-directed visuals for A$AP Rocky’s Wild For The Night single.
