In an interview with MTV Hive at Pitchfork’s Music Festival last weekend, Danny Brown mentioned that he was in talks with The Weeknd about collaborating on his new album: “We’re talking about doing something, maybe for the new album… We started talking on Twitter and texting each other.”

Danny Brown also mentioned the constant comparisons being drawn between The Weeknd and Frank Ocean: “You can’t be a fan of Frank Ocean and the Weeknd… I feel like it’s a Pepsi or Coke thing: You gotta pick one, and I’m more of a Weeknd guy.”

Skrillex, Diplo and Pretty Lights were in Toronto yesterday for their concert at the Historic Fort York. The Weeknd also happened to be present at the event and the after party at The Hoxton, where he had a chance to catch up with the three performers. What resulted was a trippy night in a Toronto studio with Diplo, The Weeknd and XO crew.

Will any collaboration music result from this rare studio appearance? Only time will tell.

XO artist Drop releases 8xHundred.

Last night, after performing at Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, The Weeknd didn’t pack up and go home. Instead he made a surprise appearance at Flying Lotus’ show in XOYO London. The result was a party of epic proportions, lasting well into the later hours of the night. Venus Williams was also reported to be seen at the party celebrating her Wimbledon tennis win.

For those who don’t know, Flying Lotus is an “experimental multi-genre music producer” from California that also happened to produce much of the bumper music on Cartoon Network’s ‘Adult Swim’ (a programming block which The Weeknd loves).

Footage and photography of the event from last night is extremely scarce due to the nature of the event. Shouts to Abeano for the pic.
