Continuing to change the course of art and history within each medium he works in, today A$AP Rocky shares the new track and official video for “A$AP Forever” featuring Moby (A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records). Sampling the instantly recognizable and iconic “Porcelain” from Moby’s seminal '99 electronic-turned-pop album Play, Rocky pays homage to the end of the 20th century when electronic music first hit the mainstream waves, while also introducing a whole new audience of young fans to the history-making artist and album.
The song is accompanied with the official video, directed by Dexter Navy, which follows Rocky through his own stunning version of augmented reality and everlasting moments of youth in New York, floating freely between space and time. Rocky performed a medley of “A$AP Forever” and a new song, “Distorted Records,” last night on TheTonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
While it's been nearly 3 years since the release of Rocky's last solo album, AT. LONG. LAST. A$AP, his second album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 and is RIAA-certified Platinum, Rocky has been anything but quiet. From carrying on the legacy of the A$AP Mob co-founder A$AP Yams with the successful yearly tradition of Yams Daycelebrations in NYC, to the release of two mixtapes: 2016's Cozy Tapes Vol 1: Friends- and 2017's Cozy Tapes Vol 2: Too Cozy, featuring the hit single "RAF" which has been streamed over 100M times.
The past two years have also seen Rocky star in a highly touted Calvin Klein advertising campaign, while his creative agency, AWGE, launched partnerships with MTV, GUESS,Under Armour, Courvoisier, Dior, Mercedes Benz, JW Anderson and more. Rocky has introduced and launched the careers of new artists such as Playboi Carti, Smooky Margiela and collaborated with many high profile artists, resulting in multiple songs in the top 10 at radio and millions of streams, including G-Eazy’s 3x Platinum “No Limit” with Cardi B, Famous Dex’s “Pick It Up” which has racked up over 200M streams and is RIAA certified Gold, "Cocky" with Gucci Mane and 21 Savage from the forthcoming Uncle Drew soundtrack, as well as songs with Mura Masa, Tyler, The Creator, Lana del Rey, The Weeknd, Young Thug, Skepta, Juicy J, Quavo, 30 Seconds to Mars, Alicia Keys and more.
Last week, Rocky dropped the track "Bad Company" featuring BlocBoy JB, which has been streamed over 5M times in less than 2 weeks. It's no wonder the GQ Style 2017 cover-star was dubbed “the world’s flyest human.”
