Exclusive: Wiz Khalifa Speaks On Working With The Weeknd
Wiz Khalifa is in full promo mode for his upcoming Under The Influence Of Music tour and his new album O.N.I.F.C.. The lead single for the album, “Work Hard, Play Hard” is starting to make its rounds on the airwaves and doesn’t slow down in the energy set off from his critically-acclaimed mix tape, Taylor Allderdice. One of the eye-opening guest appearances from the new album is a collaboration with the elusive crooner, The Weeknd. “It’s good you know, because he’s a trippy dude.” Wiz said told Hip-Hop Wired. “Actually, he reaches out to me and he calls me and he is really excited about it. He sent it to me and we got it done, and he follows up on it,” he continued.
“It’s really away from the character people know him for, so with me and him and Juicy too, we work really well together. And we’ve got a lot of stuff that people are going to hear from.” Khalifa also elaborated on the difference between his new album O.N.I.F.C. and his free release Taylor Allderdice that included all new and original music.
“I think people will definitely hear the difference,” says Wiz. “Taylor Allderdice was a lot of fun, and O.N.I.F.C. is a lot more fun. The stuff that people wanted to pay for and was worth of them going into their pockets. And I feel like these songs on O.N.I.F.C. are more than worthy of that, so I’m happy.”
