A$AP Rocky Collaborates With French Producer Gesaffelstein for ‘In Distress’
The ‘Divergent’ soundtrack just might be a must-listen if the rest of it is near the level of A$AP Rocky‘s cut. ‘In Distress,’ which is produced by France’s Gesaffelstein, arrives for your listening pleasure today.
The rapper has been fully capable of making bangers, but there’s a distinctive urgency in this one. That feel is credited largely to Gesaffelstein’s metallic backdrop, which features a barrage of pulsating synths, horror film strings and an eerie percussion line.
There’s little space, but A$AP Rocky confidently fills what little there is with his unflappable confidence. “Something out this world, nothing like the rest / Born to play the game, f—in with the best,” he rhymes on the hook.
Rocky is one of the few rap artists appearing on the ‘Divergent’ soundtrack. Others include another rock collaboration from Kendrick Lamar and this time it’s with Tame Impala and then there’s Chance the Rapper assist on Pia Mia’s ‘Fight For You.’ The soundtrack comes out on March 11, and movie hits theaters on March 21.
