Lana Del Rey ft. ASAP Rocky & Playboi Carti - "Summer Bummer"
It's been a while since longtime friends and collaborators Lana Del Rey and ASAP Rocky last linked up, but their chemistry hasn't faded. The pair released two new collaborations this week, both of which are set to appear on Del Rey's upcoming album Lust For Life. One of the tracks, "Summer Bummer," also features vocals from Playboi Carti, who punctuates the track's moody soundscape with his instantly recognizable ad-libs.
"Summer Bummer" finds Lana returning to the 808-heavy hip-hop production she favored earlier in her career, a stark change from the acoustic-leaning sound she's spent the past few years cultivating. She sings languidly about an all-consuming summer fling atop a murky, menacing beat. Rocky's verse fits the vibe perfectly, complementing Lana's ethereal vocals.—Charlotte Freitag
