Rap­per, pro­du­cer, and song­writer A$AP Ferg will be per­form­ing hits from his new album, Floor Seats II for the first time ever on MelodyVR for its Live from LA series, this Octo­ber 22nd at 6pm PST / 9pm EST / 2am + 1 day BST  on the MelodyVR app.

Fans around the world will be trans­por­ted to the music platform’s state-of-the-art Los Angeles stu­dio space to join the exclus­ive immers­ive per­form­ance. View­ers can choose their cam­era pos­i­tion with­in the app, and vir­tu­ally jam to hits includ­ing “Move Ya Hips”, “Mar­ilyn Man­son” and “Hec­tic” on any smart­phone or VR head­set.

“This is the first per­form­ance I have done since the pan­dem­ic star­ted, and I will be per­form­ing Floor Seats II live for the first time ever,” said Ferg. “My con­cert with MelodyVR is allow­ing me to get super close with my fans – I get to talk to them and walk them through each song – that’s why this is dif­fer­ent than any oth­er per­form­ance. I am bring­ing the club to your liv­ing room or kit­chen – I want to see you turn up in the kit­chen!”

A$AP Ferg released Floor Seats II on Septem­ber 25th and the pro­ject has already made his­tory: “Move Ya Hips”, with Nicki Minaj and MadeinTYO, is Ferg’s highest chart­ing single ever, hav­ing reached #19 on the Bill­board Hot 100. The Floor Seats series is designed to put you court­side for Ferg’s life. The first install­ment was released in 2019 and this next chapter takes the bas­ket­ball concept to a new level, with NBA stars past and present doing drops across the pro­ject. Jaylen Brown, Dami­an Lil­lard, and JaVale McGee are all in the mix, demon­strat­ing the power­ful rela­tion­ship between bas­ket­ball and hip hop. Oth­er album guests include Diddy, Mar­ilyn Man­son, Tyga, Mulatto, Lil Wayne, Jay Gwuapo, Antha Pantha, Nicki Minaj, MadeinTYO, and Fivio For­eign.

Floor Seats II is out now via A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds/RCA Records avail­able HERE.
