My Single of the Week - A$AP Rocky - Everyday Ft Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson

My new single of the week is the brilliant 'Everyday' from A$AP Rocky featuring Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson.

I admit to being 100% obsessed with this song at present. Its those lyrics "everyday I spend my time, drinking wine, feeling fine". I mean how great is that? Lyrical perfection!

Seriously though, this is a clever song. I had no idea when I was wandering around the house singing that line earlier this week that it was in fact a Rod Stewart sample. Who knew?

This is such a catchy song and very chilled. A$AP Rocky - aka Rakim Mayers is an American rapper. On this track he kind of reminds me of Tupac - its that edgy yet relaxed vibe which is political but very easy listening. It has that universal appeal whether you are from his home town of Harlem or a Staffs UK lass such as myself!

The audio on youtube is the unedited version. This features less radio friendly language, but it captures the soul of this song more so than the family friendly version.

The track samples Rod's classic song 'In a Broken Dream'. Mark Ronson has clearly sprinkled his magic on this - its such a summer track.

I really recommend this one as a summer chill out tune. Go listen and let me know what you think.
