Ok, I promise, this is my last Lana Del Rey-related post for like two days. Yesterday we got to see LDR‘s video for National Anthem, which featured A$AP Rocky in the video. And today I shared a list of similar presidential-themed videos. But today we actually get to hear what the two artists sound like together. The song is called Ridin’ and it will appear on A$AP Rocky‘s LongLiveA$AP, which now has a September 11th release. Listen to A$AP and Lana trading potty-mouthed sweet nothings inside.

Is it just me, or are we long-overdue for a summertime hip-hop/pop love ditty collabo? I mean, it’s no Crazy In Love, but it definitely serves its purpose. Something about these two is so complimentary, I just want more.
And I know I’m not the first to say it, but LDR sounds sooo Gwen Stefani on that first verse, right? Not a bad thing though, and she still has her own unique style so it’s not a problem for me. I could have used a little more umph from A$AP, but the song has a chill vibe, so I see where he’s going with it. And while I love his swag/anti-swagger I can admit that his lyrics are not especially mind-blowing. But he’s just so darn cute! Lol…
Seriously though, I could kinda listen to this all day. In fact, between Ridin’, National Anthem, and Fiona Apple‘s entire new album which I finally own a physical copy of, I think I’m set for life. Or at least for the weekend.
Thoughts on the A$AP/LDR link-ups? Anybody over it? (C’est impossible!)
