Based on many past moments between the two, it seems A$AP Rocky and Swizz Beatz have created somewhat of a good relationship with each other, which has taken effect in terms of their chemistry with music. Much to Monster’s recognition, the company has put together a collaborative commercial between the pair for their most recent DNA advertisement, letting the musicians work on fresh material on a conventional tour bus. During the session, Rocky realizes that they may have forgotten to bring headphones along for the ride, leaving them no choice but to stop at a passing Best Buy store to purchase a pair of the DNAs, welcomed by one of Swizz’s signature taglines in “showtime.”
Don’t worry though, Swizz offers his fans a make-up present with the star-studded new single “Hands Up” that features Ricky Rozay, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, and Tunechi.
