As we reported here, The Weeknd, thanks to his latest album, ‘After Hours,’ is already projected to capture the top spot of next week’s Billboard 200 with the biggest sales of the year among solo acts – a title he snatched from fellow Urban hitmaker Lil Uzi Vert (click here to read more).
Now, to further extend the distance between himself and the competition he’s called on Vert to assist with the ‘Hours’ deluxe edition. Though the project’s standard release stands featureless, the updated version adds five bonus tracks including remixes to its Hot 100 top 20 hits ‘After Hours,’ ‘Blinding Lights,’ and ‘Heartless.’
The latter sees Vert serve as guest, a returned favor (if you will) to The Weeknd who featured on the 25-year-old’s song ‘Unfazed’ found on his debut studio album, 2017’s ‘Luv is Rage 2.’
Look inside for the reunion of The Weeknd and Lil Uzi Vert:
The song’s original version debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 in December, as we reported here, then made history for the biggest drop from the top ever when it fell to #17 the following week.
Will Lil Uzi be just what’s needed to pump ‘Heartless’ back to first place?
