A$AP Rocky is riding that some lovesick train Lykke Li is conducting with his remix of her song “No Rest For The Wicked.”

Rocky kicks off the new version of the track with a little spoken word, letting us know that his girl loved him too much and he ended up doing her wrong: “I abused her/Never thought I’d ever lose her/I confused her/But I refused to be so wicked/Hallelujah.”

Later he shows off his rhyming ability pairing “Lykke Li,” “wiki me” and “Eazy E.” Before closing out the track with a little lovelorn plea, “If love don’t work/ It just gon’ hurt/It all goes bad/It just gets worse/I can’t describe with just one verse.”

Rocky’s love-is-just-terrible attitude seems to be in line with the theme of Li’s upcoming album, I Never Learn, out May 5, which she says is full of “power ballads” that have her pouring her out on the floor.

“It’s always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman,” she said.
