Releasing your album online unexpectedly is the in thing right now. It started with Beyoncé, was carried on by Drake, and then copied by Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, the Creator. Now, it’s ASAP Rocky’s turn.

His latest album, At. Long. Last. ASAP, dropped last night, a week earlier than previously announced, and features guest spots from Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Mark Ronson, and James Franco - yes, the actor - amongst many more. The early release is primarily down to the album prematurely leaking.

Other collaborators include M.I.A, Future, Schoolboy Q, Lil Wayne, Miguel, Mos Def and late ASAP Yams, the founder of ASAP mob who passed away earlier this year. The artwork of the album, a follow up to 2013’s Long. Live. ASAP, is a tribute the hip-hop entrepreneur.

Rocky said of his latest effort to Billboard: "Last time I was more concerned, subconsciously, with doing something mainstream. Once I did that, I not only proved to the world but to myself that I could do anything that I wanted.

"I just poured it all out on this album," he added. "All my emotions, my thoughts, my feelings. I didn't hold back one bit."
