The Weeknd teamed up with Juice WRLD on a collaboration before the rapper’s untimely death and now the song “Smile” has been released.
Just a few months before he died, Juice WRLD tweeted, “Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…” The Weeknd first teased the release of “Smile” a couple days ago and now it’s available for streaming and downloading.
“Smile” dropped with an accompanying music video, featuring an artist painting a portrait of Juice WRLD and The Weeknd. As “SMILE” arrived, The Weeknd tweeted: “Wish we could celebrate together.”
Juice’s Legends Never Die posthumous album release made a huge debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last month, scoring the largest week of 2020 for any LP.
The song is the first new music from The Weeknd since his chart-topping After Hours album was released earlier this year.
