You may not recognise the name ‘Santigold’ but you’ll definately know her 2012 track ‘Disparate Youth‘ as featured on the insurance company, Direct Lines Dec 2012 tv advert. Santigold, 36, (real name Santi White) is a singer/songwriter from Philadelphia, America.
A$AP Rocky will be performing at the Brixton Academy on Wednesday 22nd May (next week) so we’ve got his album ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ on repeat at whenmiparty.com HQ. His album track ‘Hell’ is one of the more chilled tunes and features vocal from Santigold. Its pretty cool. Listen to it now:
A$AP’s spittin sounds ace with some soft female melodies packed in. Remember ‘Ridin’ with Lana Del Ray? Its still sounding fresh for summer 2013 despite the contraversy of the release, and A$Ap’s dispute with The Kickdrums.
Another track Rocky does with a female vocalist on his current album is ‘Come Apart’ with Florence Welch from Florence and the Machine. An unlikely duo that we would have never predicted, but it actually works well. What can we say, the boy likes his ladies 😉
