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.
