Weeknd previewed the record during ‘The Idol' film premiere
The Weeknd surprised his fans during The Idol film premiere last week when he previewed an unreleased collab with Playboi Carti. Neither Weeknd nor Carti has revealed any more details about the forthcoming track.
In an interview with W Magazine earlier this month, the Afterhours singer shared that he is approaching the end of The Weeknd chapter and could release music under the moniker Abel in the future.
“I'm going through a cathartic path right now,” Weeknd said. “It's getting to a place and a time where I'm getting ready to close The Weeknd chapter. I'll still make music, maybe as Abel, maybe as The Weeknd. But I still want to kill The Weeknd. And I will. Eventually. I'm definitely trying to shed that skin and be reborn. The album I'm working on now is probably my last hurrah as The Weeknd. This is something that I have to do. As The Weeknd, I've said everything I can say.”
