A$AP Rocky Drops "JD" Video & Three New Songs, One With Pharrell

A$AP Rocky's At.Long.Last.A$AP was one of the best albums of 2015 particularly for the way it hung together as a real album-lover's album. Which makes it weird sometimes to break out any of the songs as standalone singles and videos, but Rocky knows a way around it: Just make the most unexpected, artful videos possible.

Like this one, for the interlude-ish-but-essential "JD." It's a full Space Jam experience, combining real-life footage and animation, only deeply unsettling. Hopefully we're getting a "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)" to match.

Also: Three new songs! The headliner of the batch is definitely the Pharrell-featuring "Hear Me," a vibrant, Neptunes-y beat that sees Rocky going to a new place again—and working in a few bars off Lil Wayne's "A Milli."

"Yamborghini High" has been floating around in various editions lately; the Soundcloud cover art features the recently deceased A$AP Yams in a pink-clouded, Katy Perry album cover heaven. We've also got a remix of Drake's Nothing Was the Same track "Wu-Tang Forever," with the late-night piano noodling extended to last a luscious minute.
