The Weeknd capped off his massive year with a pair of surprise releases last week, and now Travis Scott is following his lead. To go along with their tour together, Travis has brought Abel onto a new surprise collaboration to finish 2015 on a strong note.
This new Boi-1da and T-Minus produced track, “Wonderful,” keeps Travis’ momentum moving following big year in which he released his debut album Rodeo, which also included “Pray 4 Love” as a collaboration with The Weeknd. The signature vocoder autotune rapping and entertaining ad-libs are complimented by Abel’s sensual vocals to make for another solid collaboration from these two.

The Weeknd has successfully crossed over from a dark, druggy, experimental R&B artist to one of the world’s biggest pop stars this year as he’s gained comparisons to Michael Jackson and dominated the Billboard charts. His successful year is coming to an end as he grabs multiple Grammy nominations including his album Beauty Behind The Madness. Now he’s blessed us with a couple gifts on Christmas.
On a new original track “Low Life,” Abel has linked up with none other than Future, who’s among year’s hottest rappers. They’ve also enlisted production talents from Ben Billions alongside Metro Boomin, who is having a breakout year. This track brings a throwback Weeknd sound with the dreamy and dark production having a chill trap beat as Future comes in with a multiple fire verses showing off some great chemistry between the two.
In addition, The Weeknd has also hopped on the remix of Jeremih’s “Pass Dat” off his new album Late Nights, his first album in five years. Abel shows off his swagginess with his groovy singing, and he even spits a few bars as he kicks off the song on this new version. Jeremih’s new album is an amazing listen from start to finish, and throwing The Weeknd on one of the best tracks was a great decision. Stream both below and enjoy!
