RAF by A$AP Rocky had been in the works for a while. The first piece of evidence that Raf existed was a snippet found in A$AP Rocky's Snapchat on January 2017, with the snippet featuring Playboi Carti on adlibs. As time passed, Rocky continued to tease releasing RAF, even playing it during his Rolling Loud set.
After much hype and some more waiting, Frank Ocean unexpectedly released RAF on the 6th episode of his blonded Radio show on Beats1, on May 15, 2017, with the full cut featuring Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert, and even Frank Ocean himself.
The track was released twice (fitting Frank's "two versions" narrative), with the first release being lower quality, and featuring a rare rapping verse from Frank, and the second release being much higher quality and featuring a more traditional verse from Frank.
