"Suddenly"

A$AP Rocky winds down the official version of the album (keep clicking — the deluxe version features four more tracks) with this wisp of a song. Drums don't drop until more than two minutes in; until then, it's all echoes and a filtered, barely-there soul sample, which creeps in and out. Meanwhile, Rocky saves some surprisingly intricate rhyme patterns for last and once again reveals a deeper side. It's a surprisingly low-key ending to one of the most anticipated albums of the year from one of the most bombastic rappers. Sometimes you say more by doing less.
