The Weeknd in studio with Wiz Khalifa and AraabMuzik

Artist News

The Weeknd

Perhaps to detract from the lacklustre reaction to his much-hyped Coachella set, R&B soloist The Weeknd has taken to collaborating with as many artists as possible. Well, rappers AraabMuzik and Wiz Khalifa at least.

The latter broke the news in an interview with HipHopWired, telling the site that his forthcoming LP, ‘ONIFC’, will feature The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye, in a “trippy” guest capacity. Said weed fiend Wiz: “He’s a trippy dude. It’s really away from the character people know him for, so with me and him, we work really well together”.

Meanwhile Abraham Orellana, aka AraabMuzik, who is soon to release a joint mixtape with ‘Peso’ MC A$AP Rocky, has also shared studio time with Tesfaye, tweeting last week that he was “currently working with my homie The Weeknd”.

So, those duets are happening. I vote that The Weeknd should now release something with A$AP Rocky, and close this incestuous rap circle once and for all.
