A a photo of the music duo reunited heated up the Internet last month.
It could be a dimly lit strip club, or a studio. OK, most likely a studio, but maybe not... Toronto princes Drake and The Weeknd took a moody picture together that's as ambient as their collaborations. The photo, which wound up on Abel's (that's The Weeknd's real name) Instagram, suggests that the two might have another track in the works, bringing their total to ... we lost count. Both team OVO and team XO have projects coming out shortly.The Weeknd (that's team XO) is gearing up to release his new, revealing LP Kiss Land on Sept. 10. Drake (that's team OVO) drops his third LP Nothing Was the Same the following week on Sept. 17. No new friends, what? (VIBE)
A couple weeks prior, Weeknd cleared up various rumors about having issues with Drizzy.
"No, that's not true. Definitely not true. But it makes sense. The thing about Drake is I told him what my decisions were going to be. And he was down with it from the beginning," Weeknd added when asked about the Drake rumors. "Everything. I told him from day one what my decision was going to be. I wasn't going that route. I was going to go my own route. And he supported me. I don't like to spoon-feed people. I don't like to be like, "You know what? I'm going to let the world know that we're cool. We're going to take a picture together. Everyone's cool." It's all about the mystery, and people like it. Shit's WWE, man. It's wrestling, you know what I mean?" (Complex)
The new album's artwork recently leaked across the Internet.
The Weeknd has always maintained mystery, but he decides to show his face on the dark cover of his upcoming album Kiss Land. The Canadian singer poses in front of a window with the city lights behind him. Although he's released several mixtapes and the Trilogy compilation last year, he considers this his first album. Kiss Land is due later this summer featuring the title track and "Belong to the World." (Rap-Up)
