The Weeknd and Drake seem to be on good terms as of late and in honor of the newfound unity, the Toronto rapper decided to let the Toronto singer debut a new joint of his on OVO Sound Radio.

The Weeknd premiered his cover of R. Kelly’s “Down Low (Nobody Has to Know),” a song he had already been performing live for the past few years. The new release is just the latest taste of fresh music from the him. Earlier this week he teased new music while preparing to hit the road for the next part of his Starboy Tour.

On Instagram yesterday (September 8), The Weeknd prepped Saturday’s release with a logo of the show and the simple caption, “Down Low.”
