A$AP Rocky will appear on the US version of Jessie Ware's album 'Devotion' when it is released later this year.

The rapper will appear on a reworking of the track of 'Wildest Moments' which will be included on the new version of Ware's 2012 album 'Devotion', which will hit stores in America on April 16. The album will also include new song 'Imagine It Was Us', written by Ware with long-term collaborator Julio Bashmore. Tweeting about the collaboration this morning (March 18), Ware wrote: "Always wanted a rap on Wildest Moments! Dreams do come true eh!"

A$AP Rocky previously spoke about how he wanted to work with Jessie Ware, telling one interviewer: "I knew about her since last summer. I'm working with her, I'm going to work with her. I want to bad," he said, before adding: "I don't care about her being a star, I just think she has a beautiful voice and a lot of talent. I haven't got the chance or honour to meet her yet - I just love her art."

'Devotion' was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in 2012 but lost out to eventual winners Alt-J. The Brit Award nominated Ware recently compared herself to Curb Your Enthusiasm writer and actor, Larry David. "I'm so neurotic - I'm like Larry David," she said. "I've gotten to a position where all these people are helping me, and I don't want to let them down."

Jessie Ware recently concluded a headline UK tour, finishing with two shows at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire.
