The Weeknd and Juice WRLD to Release Collaboration
XO meets 999.
The Weeknd is teaming up with Juice WRLD on their first collaboration, which is set to arrive this Thursday night. Earlier today, The Weeknd teased the highly-anticipated track with the late Chicago rapper.
“XO + 999 Thursday Night,” he captioned a photo of Juice WRLD.
The collaboration has been a long time coming. Back in September, Juice tweeted about working with Abel, and now it seems his dream will come to fruition.
“Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…” he wrote.

This will mark the first collaboration between the two. Both continue to dominate the charts. Juice WRLD’s posthumous album Legends Never Die debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and is currently No. 3, while The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” is No. 5 on the Hot 100.
On Friday, The Weeknd will host a live virtual concert on TikTok. As part of the app’s “first-ever in-app cross reality experience,” a digital avatar of the singer will perform a series of tracks from his chart-topping album After Hours.
