A collaborative track between The Weeknd and Juice WRLD is set to drop this week.

Taking to social media to make the brief announcement, the After Hours singer tweeted, “XO + 999 Thursday Night.” “XO” refers to The Weeknd and his label, while “999” is a symbolic number Juice used throughout his career.

Fans also managed to dig up an old tweet from Juice alluding to the collab. Originally posted in September 2019 — approximately three months before he died — the tweet reads, “Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…”

The two artists have released major albums this 2020. After Hours and Juice’s first posthumous record Legends Never Die both opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with Legends Never Die briefly dethroning After Hours to hold the record for biggest debut of the year.

The collab of The Weeknd and Juice WRLD drops August 6.

In other music news, Logic’s sixth and final studio album No Pressure opened at No. 2 on this week’s Billboard 200.
