ASAP Ferg and Elle Fanning Remix “Moon River” for New Tiffany & Co. Ad
A$AP Ferg has done some unique collaborations in his music career and his most recent record might be his most unexpected. The Harlem rapper teams up with actress and singer Elle Fanning to record a new version of the famous "Moon River" record for a new Tiffany & Co. advertisement.
The song, which was originally made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's, gets a remix from the rapper and Hollywood star and features some fresh new bars from Ferg.
While there is still a lot of the same instrumentation that matches the first record, there is definitely some hip-hop influence on the remix. Ferg not only references the notable song, but he even sticks to the jewelry theme with some boastful lyrics.
"Moo-moo-moo-moon river wrist, T-Square ring/Room full of glis/Blue give me kiss," he raps. "In a pool full of Cris, Canary on a finger (Moon river)/Don't drool on my drip."
In a statement with the song's remix release, the "Plain Jane" hitmaker speaks on being able to create a song for Tiffany & Co., which is a dream come true for him.
"I come from Harlem, which is a long way from the famous Tiffany flagship on Fifth Avenue," he explains. "But because I went to the High School of Art and Design in Midtown, I’d have to walk past the Tiffany store every single day on my way home. It was just years and years of me walking past Tiffany, never dreaming one day my face, my voice, and my lyrics would be part of their story. That’s a real dream, in real life."
