After recently teasing fans with a snippet from his upcoming album, rapper A$AP Rocky has a made a guest appearance on Thirty Seconds to Mars’s latest single, “One Track Mind.” The new song is set to feature on the band’s forthcoming album, America.
While a collaboration between the two may be unexpected, the result is a sound reminiscent of the rapper’s “L$D” days. Foregoing his usual rap flow, Rocky sings a few bars on the chill, electronic groove and ends his verse with the lines, “Heard it’s only thirty seconds to Mars / And it took you even less just to get to my heart.”
For a full listen, check out “One Track Mind” below.
This is not the first time the rapper has stepped out of his comfort zone. Just last year, the Harlem native made a guest feature on Maroon 5’s sullen song, “Whiskey” (which you can revisit below) and recently hinted that his next project was finalized.
“We got new shit. A lot of y’all don’t know, but the only reason I came to Berlin was to finish my album that I just finished,” he said in early February.
If these two collaborations are anything to go by, fans can definitely expect something major from the artist.
In the meantime, let us know what you think of his recent collaboration and when you’re done, check out everything we know so far about A$AP Rocky’s next album.
