A$AP Rocky Wants to Collaborate With British Artist Jessie Ware
A$AP Rocky is hip-hop's young artist du jour, with a phone presumably ringing off the hook with people wanting to collaborate with him. But as far as the Harlem-raised rapper is concerned, what he'd really like to do is hook up in the studio with British singer Jessie Ware.
"I'm going to work with her. I want to bad," Rocky told the BBC during a recent interview. "I don't care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven't got the chance or honor to meet her yet -- I just love her art."
Of course, MTV couldn't help but ask Ware about this the next time they spoke with her -- and as it turns out, the feeling's quite mutual. "I've wanted to work with him for so long, I can't even tell you. I've been trying to get through to him; I'm desperate!" she revealed, adding, "We just need to meet! I think we'd get on very well. Apparently he's very charming, he's a gorgeous boy, and he's amazing. Yeah, I definitely, definitely want to work with him. A$AP, it's a no brainer!"
Having attracted one fellow rising star's attention, Ware couldn't help pressing her luck. "This is stalker time," she laughed, proceeding to rattle off a list of dream collaborators. "I'd love to work with Frank Ocean, A$AP and Kanye West. I'm aiming high. And I love Chad and Pharrell [from the Neptunes], so them too. And Justin Timberlake's new song is so good ... so, why not, him too!"
