A$AP Ferg Hops Onto Haim’s “My Song 5″ Remix
Well, we never would've guessed A$AP Ferg was set to become a pop crossover star, but here we are, living in a world where the trap lord features on Ariana Grande's sophomore album and shows up on HAIM's "My Song 5" remix. We'll take it!
The confidently warped, clanging Days Are Gone outlier gets an added level of bizarre swag thanks to Ferg's backing ad-libs, then he drops in for a manic verse about adultery and a doomed relationship over Danielle Haim's guitar licks and the song's signature baritone horn blasts. It's as off-kilter as it is effective, and for some reason we think it works better this way, as a remix. If the original had included a rap verse, it would've seemed like a case of trying too hard, but now it just seems like an odd song that they've taken further down the rabbit hole.
This isn't the first time the Cali sisters have worked with A$AP Mob, by the way: They recorded vocals for A$AP Rocky's "LVL," which seem to have been included, uncredited, at the end of the song. The trio also featured on Kid Cudi's "Red Eye."
