HAIM have released a remix of their record “My Song 5″ off their 2013 debut album Days Are Gone. And who do the Cali sister trio link up with on this new version? None other than the Trap Lord himself, A$AP Ferg. The Harlem rapper laces the rock-tinged track with a cold 16, retracing his steps of infidelity in a relationship that has gone sour.
The remix from HAIM comes as a gift for fans as the group celebrates their seventh year of existence today. Check out HAIM and Ferg’s collaboration below, premiered by Zane Lowe on his BBC Radio 1 show. HAIM’s Days Are Gone is available on iTunes.
