Even though everyone can’t wait for it, A$AP Rocky returns to live music with a bang. The rapper, who was nominated for a Grammy, talked with Zane Lowe on the Apple Music 1 station on Wednesday about Rihanna’s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. This will be her first public appearance since the 2018 Grammy Awards.
Rocky told Apple Music, “I’m very happy that my lady is back to making music and going out there again.” “That’s really cool.”
He went on, “The Super Bowl is a big deal, and since she is creative, she will bring it, man.” I’m happy. “I’m really more excited than everyone else.”
Rocky, who is 34, and Rihanna, who is also 34, had been friends for almost ten years before they began dating in November 2020. The news at the time said that the couple would have a son in May 2022. The “Diamonds” singer and the “L.S.D.” rapper have both said how much they love being parents to their 8-month-old.
Rocky put out “Same Problems?” on Wednesday, a day after he performed it live on Amazon Music Live during Thursday Night Football. The song is a tribute to several young hip-hop artists who died too soon in the past few years. Rocky’s performance is caught on camera for the music video. Images of the rappers who have died flash on the screen next to him.
Rocky told Apple Music that the song was inspired by a “sense of shame.” He was worried that the fact that his lyrics often praise drug use and too much partying may have contributed to the problem.
Without getting too religious, Rocky told Lowe, “I just wanted to touch on something a little different instead of just being braggadocious, showy, and doing standard rap stuff for me.”
I didn’t want to give a sermon; I just wanted to be able to say what I thought. I think we can all understand. “We care about the same things.”
Rocky said, “This year is a good time for both of us to be more active and get out there.”
