Lana Del Rey Reunites With ASAP Rocky On ‘Lust For Life’
The Weeknd and Stevie Nicks are not the only featured artists on Lana Del Rey’s Lust For Life LP (due July 21). The dream-pop goddess also reunites with ASAP Rocky and collaborates with “Magnolia” rapper Playboi Carti for the first time. She teased their collaboration, which was produced by Boi1da (Rihanna’s “Work” and Kendrick Lamar’s “The Blacker The Berry”), on Instagram and it sounds promising. “We made a lot of good ones but I think we picked the best ones for the record,” she captioned the snippet.
Of course, Lana has a long history with Rocky. He starred in her iconic “National Anthem” video, playing the President to her First Lady. They also collaborated on the unreleased track “Ridin’.” The 32-year-old has largely avoided features in the past, so Lust For Life is shaping up to be something of a departure for her. The singer is hoping to uplift fans (she’s the Good Witch of Weho, after all), but also comment on the state of the world — and that requires embracing new genres and showcasing diverse talents.
