Bryson Tiller – Rambo (The Weeknd Remix)
The Weeknd has made dreams come true in an off-the-cuff SoundCloud upload featuring the Canadian singer and R&B newcomer Bryson Tiller together on a track at last. The song is a remix of Tiller’s “Rambo,” which originally appeared on his acclaimed breakout album T R A P S O U L, released late last year.
The two artists struck up a friendship — reportedly over a game of Call of Duty — and have since teased the possibility of a collaboration with several media outlets. The Weekend graces “Rambo” with his signature, mournful vocals behind Tiller’s pitchy raps and the evasive piano line. The resulting remix is a paradox: sonically pared down and emotionally amped up. While the collaboration is light on original content, the potential energy generated by two of R&B’s most unique voices is undeniably electric.
