The XO singer posted a preview of his new song with some of the lyrics referencing Drake’s luxury whiskey. “Kick back on the whiskey / Virginia black am now tipsy / On the lay like am Nipsey / Spanish girls wonna kiss me,” the Starboy singer sings. Sounds like another hit is on the way for The Weeknd.
The Weeknd is currently embarking on the North American leg of his Starboy: Legend of the Fall tour. But it looks like in between tour he has been hitting the studio to work on perhaps his next album. There are also some reports of a joint album between himself and Drake, but there are mo word yet on if the project is officially in the works or if Drizzy will be featured on this new single. We don’t even know that title of this new track, all we have is this 15 seconds snippet posted on Twitter and judging from what we hear so far it sounds pretty fire.
The Weeknd has been one of the hottest R&B stars on the scene for the last few years and both his last two albums, Beauty Behind the Madness released in 2015 and his 2016 LP Starboy, have been both certified multi-platinum and debut at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. Drake launched his new whiskey brand last year June and since then the brand sold over 30,000 cases around the world. Drake and his father even famously did a commercial about the brand. He even got a shout-out from Diddy earlier this year. The whiskey brand is base on the 1970s music and fashion era.
