Like I'm Apart

Album: LongLiveASAP (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaboration with Florence Welch. Speaking on MTV's Rapfix Live, A$AP admitted he hadn't crossed paths with the Florence + the Machine songstress before and it was she who reached out to him. "I knew about her from winning Grammys and stuff like that, but I'm not gonna sit here and lie," he said, "I wasn't too in tune with the music, so when I found out she was fascinated with my style, that's when the infatuation with her came. I just started doing research and I became a fan."
  • Speaking with The Sun about working with Welch, Rocky said: "Man, no one would expect us to work together but she's a huge hip-hop fan. That's the whole surprise of the album - people you wouldn't put together on paper and it works in the music."
