A little less than a year ago we lost Lil Peep due to an overdose of Xanax, while about three months ago XXXtentacion passed away because of a gunshot. The two artists were certainly very similar on a musical level, both were influenced by rock and tended to expose their feelings in some very sad lyrics. We all dreamed of a collaboration, but after the sad happenings, we thought it would never come. Today, however, to everyone’s surprise, ‘Falling Down‘ got released!
The two have never worked together during their lifetime, but have been reunited by a common friend, Makonnen. Co-author of ‘Falling Down’ with Peep before his death, the Atlanta artist added XXX to the track a few months later.
“I am honoured to have co written this song that X was inspired to be a part of,shortly before he died.
Peep and I always believed that music heals and brings people together in a way nothing else can.
When I heard X’s recording ,talking about my dear friend Peep I could not wait any longer to share this.”
Makonned said on Instagram. The single anticipates Lil Peep’s new album. In the meantime, you can stream the song below.
