A$AP Rocky: 'I wanted to bone Lana Del Rey'

The rapper admits he had a crush on the singer before they worked together

A$AP Rocky: 'I wanted to bone Lana Del Rey'
A$AP Rocky has revealed that he wanted to "bone" Lana Del Rey before he met her.

The rapper recently worked with the singer on a promo clip for her single 'National Anthem'. In the video, Rocky plays former US president John F Kennedy to Del Rey's Jacqueline Kennedy in re-enactments of the couple's home videos.

The pair have also recorded a duet together called 'My Bitch', which appeared online last week (June 28). The track is expected to appear on Rocky's debut album, 'LongLiveA$AP', which is due in September.

However, the shapely singer had caught Rocky's eye previous to their recent collaborations. The rapper told DJ Drama:

I used to fake have a little crush on her before I met her. I wanted to always bone her and stuff like that.

He also revealed that it had taken the pair some time to find the right opportunity to work together, saying: "She heard I wanted to work with her and she always used to say, 'I want to work with him too,' but it never worked. Probably a month ago, she was like, 'I wrote this video treatment'."

Lana Del Rey releases 'National Anthem', the fifth single from her Number One album 'Born To Die', on July 6. Press 'play' below to watch the video starring Del Rey and A$AP Rocky.
