Jessie Ware Gets A$AP Rocky for North American Release of 'Devotion'
Published Mar 18, 2013Following much acclaim in 2012, English pop singer Jessie Ware's debut set Devotion gets its proper North American release April 16 through Interscope, and it will feature some new, exclusive bars from hyped New York rapper A$AP Rocky on a remix of the album's "Wildest Moments."
Ware confirmed Flacko's album assist via Twitter earlier today (March 18), writing: "Yes! it's true! i am so over excited to have @asvpxrocky feature on 'Wildest Moments' for my US release of Devotion — you can hear soon xxxx always wanted a rap on Wildest Moments! Dreams do come true eh!"
Rocky had previously made it known that he wanted to work with the electro R&B artist, telling NME, "I knew about her since last summer. I'm working with her, I'm going to work with her. I want to bad.... I don't care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven't got the chance or honour to meet her yet — I just love her art."
On top of the new remix, the North American edition of Devotion also includes a brand new track co-written by Ware titled "Imagine It Was Us." On April 15 overseas, the songs will be presented on a bonus disc in a deluxe package titled Devotion — The Gold Edition, which will also include dance duo Disclosure's remix of "Running" and a track from Ware and Sampha called "Valentine."
"Imagine It Was Us" will also be released as a single in the UK on May 13.
As previously reported, Ware heads to North America in April for some tour dates and will stop in both Toronto and Vancouver while she's here.
