A$AP Rocky has revealed that he wants to work with Jessie Ware.

Speaking to the BBC, the rapper said that he was eager to collaborate with the singer and is hoping that the pair will work on a future project together.

"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."

Earlier this week, A$AP Rocky performed tracks from his new album 'LongLiveA$AP' on David Letterman's US chat show. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch him perform 'Wild For The Night' and 'Long Live A$AP'. The LP was released earlier this week.
