This past January, ILoveMakonnen took it upon himself to liberate a previously-unreleased Lil Peep collaboration known as “I’ve Been Waiting.” Released as a posthumous single from Lil Peep, “I’ve Been Waiting” also featured contributions from one of Peep’s favorite bands, Fall Out Boy. Now, thanks to visual artist and designer Sus Boy, an official video for Lil Peep, ILoveMakonnen and Fall Out Boy’s “I’ve Been Waiting” track has emerged.

“Peep wanted this video to bring people up into the clouds, into the fantastical world of his mind,” Sus Boy explains. “Making it now, alongside Makonnen, is our way of visiting him again.”

“This video is a magical one,” Liza Womack, Lil Peep’s mother, added, taking to Instagram to express her thoughts on the “I’ve Been Waiting” vignette. “Gus and Makonnen came up with the idea for it two years ago. I’m so glad the idea has been realized. You will see the subtle presence of Gus in it, if you look closely. Well done, guys!”

“All the songs that Peep and I have worked on are special to me. I knew adding his heroes Fall Out Boy to ‘I’ve Been Waiting,’ would be a tribute to my friend and collaborator that I could feel proud of,” iLoveMakonnen previously shared via a press statement that accompanied the initial rollout of the “I’ve Been Waiting” single. “When I called Pete [Wentz] he immediately said yes, and it came together very quickly. I’m really excited to share this with the fans.”

A couple weeks before the initial release of “I’ve Been Waiting,” Lil Peep’s “16 Lines” video also hit YouTube.
