The Weeknd announced a very special new collaboration to debut soon. In a tweet, he alluded to a partnership between “XO” (the artist’s own label) and “999”(a number famously associated with the late rapper Juice WRLD). The new song fulfills a wish from the late rapper, evidence by a tweet he posted last year:
Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…

XO + 999 Thursday Night

The two artists have released major albums this 2020. After Hours and Juice’s first posthumous record Legends Never Die both opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with Legends Never Die briefly dethroning After Hours to hold the record for biggest debut of the year. You can expect the collab to drop later tonight!
