A$AP Rocky dropped his new album Testing at the stroke of midnight on Friday, almost exactly three years since last album At. Long. Last. A$AP. So naturally, when the album hit, Rocky fans pounced, hot takes in hand.
Taking to Twitter — a natural move, obviously — listeners mostly had positive feedback. A few, however, weren’t feeling Testing’s more experimental direction. As Rocky told Complex’s Open Late, “I’m still trying to give you a beautiful canvas, but something different. I want to take a different approach, and I want to challenge the viewer who is tired of hearing the same old shit. You know, this shit is a cliché at this point.”
