LA trio female band HAIM have been making waves over the past past 7 years as a band, yet causing their biggest splash ever recently since the release of their debut studio album last fall. Well to celebrate the group's 7th year being together, they have linked up with rising buzzing rapper A$AP Ferg remixing their single "My Song 5" for an unlikely combination no one saw coming, yet couldn’t have worked better. Ferg's new relentless verse sandwiches between HAIM's smooth vocals for a contrasting combination that helps make this something special. I don't expect to see an official release here, so streaming will have to suffice. Enjoy!
