Hear Jessie Ware tangle with A$AP Rocky on ‘Wildest Moments (remix)’

It’s long been rumoured, but now you can hear what Harlem’s A$AP Rocky makes of Jessie Ware’s breakout single ‘Wildest Moments’

Mostly successful, this push towards the US market is understandable, but we don’t really think it really adds a great deal to Ware’s elegant original. Rocky is on a typically low-key tip, interspersing Ware’s memorable chorus with some forgettable thoughts on relationships, and while his tone gels well with the dusty rhythm, it just feels like a lot of remixes do: a bit more than we really needed.

It was apparently Rocky himself who was desperate to work with Ware, as he said to the BBC: “I knew about her since last summer. I’m working with her, I’m going to work with her. I want to bad…I don’t care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven’t got the chance or honour to meet her yet – I just love her art.”.

You can make your own mind up and listen below.
