I remember going to my friend’s concert in middle school, where they had an OG projector set up with a pyrex bowl of dish soap, water, and food coloring, which was used as entertainment for the kids who were too awkward to dance. Well, Swedish singer and songwriter Lykee Li has one upped those days with a set of visuals for the remixed version of her current single No Rest For The Wicked. The song opens with A$AP Rocky explaining his mistakes in a prior relationship, foreshadowing the story behind his guest verse. The addition of the PMF from Harlem provides a nice break in the midst of Lykke’s eerily calming voice. The borderline-epic record will appear in its original form, sans Rocky, on Lykke’s I Never Learn album, which will be available for purchase on May 5. And in case A$AP Rocky doesn’t deliver your preferred cup of rap tea, check out e-dubble’s rhymes over a chopped up version of the same sample.
