Lykke Li: No Rest For The Wicked feat. A$AP Rocky
This is what happens when two genre-purveying artists, from very different musical styles, converge and create music. Somewhere in the cosmic spheres of music, Lykke Li and A$AP Rocky found each other and decided it would be rude not to work on a song together.
After experiencing a healthy dose of heartbreak, Lykke Li returned back home to Sweden, where she spent time channelling her emotions and turning them into songwriting gold. The original version of "No Rest For The Wicked" is haunting, emotional and full of depth; throw in A$AP's beats and high-pitched rap, and you have an entirely new spin on the track, one that is quite easy on the ears.
It is so refreshing to see musical collaborations like these existing. Combining two varying elements of music doesn't always go down smoothly, but this time it slides down as smooth as your favorite whiskey.
Lykke's album I Never Learn will be available worldwide on May 6.
