NO, this is not a test. A$AP Rocky’s long-awaited third album, Testing, is finally here.
The Harlem rapper delivers 15 new tracks and loads of guest appearances, including the likes of Kid Cudi and T.I. on the remix to “A$AP Forever”, Frank Ocean on two tracks including “Brotha Man” and “Purity”, as well as FKA twigs, Skepta, Kodak Black, Playboi Carti, Smooky MarGielaa, and Dev Hynes.
In an interview with Complex, Rocky said he wanted to try something different than before. “I think I’m testing the waters and I think that’s the difference [from previous albums],” he explained. “I’ve matured so much throughout the years. I feel reborn again since my last album. I think the hardest thing for me is losing someone every time I put out a project. It makes it very difficult. But you know, you always strive and prosper.”
