Are Kanye West & Ed Sheeran On The Weeknd’s New Album?
If Ed Sheeran is to be believed, Kanye West is on The Weeknd‘s forthcoming album. As to how the British singer got ahold of this inside info, it turns out he recently partied with the man known legally as Abel Tesfaye in Toronto.
Over the weekend, Sheeran told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 that after a few drinks, The Weeknd asked him to come back the next day to work on some music together. Sheeran was taken aback, due to a certain Kanye feature.
“In my head I’m like, ‘The Weeknd doesn’t want to write a song!’ The Weeknd doesn’t want to work with anyone,” he told Lowe. “He’s got one feature on his album, which is Kanye West. He doesn’t want to do that.”
Sheeran dropped that nugget about The Weeknd’s Coachella pal like it was nothing, then revealed that he did, in fact, end up collaborating with Tesfaye on something “really, really fucking good” before leaving Toronto.
So there you have it, Yeezy and Sheeran could be on The Weeknd’s Chapter III project, which is expected later this year. Hear the interview below.
