The Weeknd to collaborate with Wiz Khalifa & araabMUZIK | Music News

Considering he forms the OVOXO outfit alongside one of the biggest names in pop let alone rap, Drake, and he boasts his own adoring fanbase in its hundreds of thousands, it’s a surprise that only now The Weeknd is set to work with a few fellow contemporary stars: Wiz Khalifa and aarabMUZIK.

In a recent interview with Hip Hop Wired, the Taylor Gang chiefer announced The Weeknd’s presence on his forthcoming album, O.N.I.F.C. “It’s good you know, because he’s a trippy dude. Actually, he reaches out to me and he calls me and he is really excited about it. He sent it to me and we got it done, and he follows up on it,” said Wiz of the collaboration.

“It’s really away from the character people know him for, so with me and him and Juicy too, we work really well together. And we’ve got a lot of stuff that people are going to hear from.”

Earning his stripes in the hip-hop ranks further, Abel Tesfaye’s partnership with the master of the MPC araabMUZIK looks to be on its way, too. “Currently working with my homie @theweekndxo Smh at we gonna put out!!!!” araab (@araabMUZIK) tweeted a number of days ago.

It’s also worth making a note of araabMUZIK’s forthcoming project with A$AP Rocky, entitled A$VPMUZIK, which was announced a short while ago.
