ASAP Rocky Shares ‘Testing’ Album Featuring Playboi Carti, Frank Ocean and More
The Harlem rhymer announced the follow-up to 2015's At. Long. Last. ASAP in February, during a show in Berlin. "A lotta y'all don't know but, the only reason I came to Belin is to finish my album that I just finished," he told the crowd while onstage.
Shortly afterward, he started showing the fruits of his labor with songs like "A$AP Forever" and "Distorted Records." In the last month or so, Rocky had been mum on the project until he announced it would be coming earlier this week, followed by the release of a performance art piece for the track "Lab Rat."
The de facto A$AP Mob leader is definitely trying out new waves on the 15-song LP, which features Playboi Carti, Frank Ocean, Skepta, French Montana, Kodak Black, Kid Cudi and more, and additional vocals from the likes of Diddy, Snoop Dogg and BlocBoy JB. The production credits on the project are stacked, with names like frequent collaborator Hector Delgado as well as Rico Love, Skepta, Clams Casino, Dean Blunt and Dev Hynes, among others. Juicy J serves as executive producer.
In conjunction with the album, Rocky released a new app, which gives fans a unique viewing and listening experience for the musical offering.
