Blunt Ocean's blonded RADIO has turned into a center point for new music and today was no special case. Amid Frank's radio opening early today, he debuted another A$AP Rocky tune, "RAF" highlighting Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo and Mr. Sea himself.
The surprise was matched with a double up as two adaptations were discharged of the Raf Simons-enlivened collab, which is nothing unexpected of "two versions Frank." Each tune additionally included an alternate verse from the Blonde star.
Unsurprisingly, this is not the first run through A$AP Rocky has declared his adoration for brands in a song. His 2013 hit single "Mold Killa" set the pace for name dropping with shout outs to everybody from Tom Ford to Helmut Lang. Besides, he pronounces himself a "trendy n***** "— which appears to be difficult to debate today, seeing that he's not just a fashion icon in his own particular right, additionally has his own collection for Guess, and sits front row at pretty much any major fashion he needs, including for sure, Raf Simons in New York this February.
So, it is clear that while wearing rare Raf Simons is the ultimate flex, the designer might also be the only person capable of humbling someone like Rocky.
Rough is the lead artist, however "RAF" still feels developed around Ocean, who played two versions of the track on his show, each with an alternate verse from him. The principal adaptation is braggadocio encouraged by Frank-particular asides: a reference to the House of LeBeija, a brag like "Anna Wintour cool with my mother". However, it's the second, lengthier form that is unrivaled in light of the fact that it energetically synopsizes his appeal: His smoothness is likewise why fans are so cheerful to be incarcerated by his thick persona. Raf isn't the metaphor that Chanel—with Frank summoning Chanel's twofold C logo as an illusion to bisexuality, or maybe the part of fluid gay sex—yet the words ("Skin excessively dark, making it impossible to become flushed") and the separated swing of a broken line like "Raf draggin' off the… . floor, biiitttchh" are charming looks at Frank's central division—the relatable, some of the time vain sentimental blossoming out of the isolated conundrum. On "RAF," these ramblings from being set inside a setting of far lesser profundity.
We are not sure where this collab will land but there’s been some speculation it’ll find it’s self somewhere on Rocky’s upcoming album At.Long.Last.A$AP.
