IT’S A FULL-ON FANDOM CORNUCOPIA Y’ALL.
Rap fans, K-pop stans, Chinese film buffs, and even Kardashian die-hards all have something to look forward to this week: a collaboration between ex-EXO idol / current Chinese rap and movie star Kris Wu, and popular American rapper / recent Kardashian fam inductee Travis Scott.
This summer Kris Wu served as the Simon Cowell of Chinese competition show THE RAP OF CHINA, while Scott has been busy since his #1 Billboard single Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight collaborating with hip-hop heavyweights like Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and Big Sean (and also getting Kylie Jenner in on the surprisingly-long list of currently-preggo Kardashians, hey-o).
Wu teased the new single Scott is featured on–a track called “Deserve,”–with a small sample of the beat.
Sounds pretty dope to me.
I’m not sure how much of an overlap there is between k-pop/c-pop followers and Travis Scott fans–the general consensus on rap forums seems to be “Kris Who?”–but maybe this collab could lure some fresh meat into the Asian hip-hop fandom?
“Deserve” is set to drop on October 12.
