Listen to Jessie Ware + A$AP Rocky’s ‘Wildest Moments’ Remix
The song opens with Rocky’s signature flow, which includes adorable lines like “We blow like fish.” There’s no hints of Hootie here, though — it’s all tinkling pianos, midtempo beats and soul.
The collabo was a long time coming — Rocky had been itching to work with Ware for months. I’m going to work with her. I want to bad,” Rocky said back in January. “I don’t care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven’t got the chance or honor to meet her yet — I just love her art.”
Rocky’s feeling were requited, as Ware couldn’t wait to get her hands — er, mic — on the MC.
“ I’ve wanted to work with him for so long, I can’t even tell you,” she gushed soon after. “I’ve been trying to get through to him; I’m desperate!” she revealed, adding, “We just need to meet! I think we’d get on very well. Apparently he’s very charming, he’s a gorgeous boy, and he’s amazing. Yeah, I definitely, definitely want to work with him. A$AP, it’s a no brainer!”
The collabo was confirmed via Ware’s Twitter:
Yes! it’s true! i am so over excited to have @asvpxrocky feature on ‘Wildest Moments’ for my US release of Devotion – you can hear soon xxxx

And it was totally worth the hype.
The track will appear on Ware’s U.S. debut, ‘Devotion,’ dropping April 16.
