Yep, you read that right. Canadian crooner Shawn — the teen heartthrob who’ll leave your heart in “Stitches” — teamed up with the 27-year-old Harlem MC for a duet about fancy clothes. The two artists are headlining the Forbes Under 30 Musical Festival in Philadelphia tonight (Oct. 6), along with Hanson and pop violinist Lindsey Stirling, and they seemed to have met up for an impromptu jam sesh backstage.
We have good news and bad news about this unlikely but awesome collab. On the bright side, Shawn put a snippet of their song on Instagram, oh-so-casually captioning it, “@asaprocky and i wrote a song back stage. @forbes haha.”
“Look at what I bought, Dior is the coat, you know what it cost,” A$AP raps as Shawn strums away on his trusty acoustic guitar, before swooping in with the hook.
Now, the not-so-great news here is that the clip doesn’t go on longer, so we have no idea what else Shawn was going to say about their dapper attire and shared awesomeness. Which is really a shame, because fans are THIRSTIN’ for some more Shawn/A$AP musical magic.
Both Shawn and A$AP earned spots on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list in the music category, which is a pretty impressive achievement. Maybe they’ll take that as a sign to keep collaborating? C’mon guys, we need a full version of this tune!
