Last night (May 7), Rocky premiered the track at the Red Bull Music Academy Festival in New York City by asking the crowd, “Do you know who Rod Stewart is?”
Stewart didn’t get into the studio with Rocky, something we wish we could have seen, instead the track, produced by Mark Ronson, samples a 1972 song by the Aussie rock band Python Lee Jackson featuring vocals from Stewart called “In a Broken Dream.”
On the rather downtrodden track, Miguel echoes Stewarts words, singing about spending his time drinking wine and feeling fine, while Rocky comes in with an anger fueled rap about those who are trying to take him down.
Perhaps, he’s already sealed the song’s fate as a hit by working with Ronson.
A$AP Rocky also revealed that his album, At.Long.Last.A$AP will not be out next week like originally planned, but will now drop on June 2.
Hopefully this track will tide you over.
