When introducing yourself to an international audience, it might be best to get cosigned by an artist from that country, so that fans have a familiar face to associate you with. For evidence of this strategy’s effectiveness, look no further than Wildest Moments (Remix), the debut feature from UK singer/songwriter Jessie Ware. To stir up some buzz about tomorrow’s Stateside release of her studio debut, Ware called upon an American hitmaker with a history of eclectic collaborations. A$AP Rocky joins Ware atop producer Kid Harpoon‘s poignant, crashing beat, adding some lyrical “spice” to offset Ware’s sugary vocals. For the original version of this record, check out Devotion, released last summer in the UK and out this week in a newly-packaged form.
