Rumors suggesting a collaboration between the two artists have been known for a while. However, it was not until The Weeknd posted a short snippet of what appears to be Grande’s vocals on the song, that confirmed the musical partnership. The eight-second clip hears a set of isolated vocals from the pair as they match the bridge of the song. The Weeknd tags Grande in the tweet, further affirming that she will be appearing on the latest version of the song.
Due to his fourth studio album, After Hours, The Weeknd garnered one of his biggest years yet. The album features hits like “Heartless,” “Save Your Tears” and “Blinding Lights,” with the latter becoming the first song to ever spend an entire year in the Top 10 charts. After Hours went on to pick up more Platinum RIAA certifications following his Super Bowl LV halftime show.
It appears that The Weeknd’s After Hours era is yet to be over as he seems to have a few more surprises for fans up his sleeves. Check out the teaser clip of the Ariana Grande featured “Save Your Tears” below.
