The Weeknd has unveiled a new single featuring the late Juice WRLD titled ‘Smile’. Check it out below.
The track marks the first collaborative effort between the Canadian singer and the late Chicago rapper, who passed away in September after suffering a seizure. Just months before he died, he tweeted: “Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…”
‘Smile’ arrives a few hours before The Weeknd’s virtual event on TikTok, an “immersive XR experience”, set to air at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT today (August 7). Throughout the event, TikTok users be able to donate to the Equal Justice Initiative, which aims to bring an end to mass incarceration in the US.
The Weeknd’s latest studio LP was After Hours, which we named one of our favourite albums of the year so far. Juice WRLD’s posthumous album, Legends Never Die, was released last month.
