Fall Out Boy have shared a new collaboration with Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen collaboration called ‘I’ve Been Waiting’.
The latter pair released a previous collaboration, ‘Sunlight on Your Skin’, was released in September of last year.
Lil Peep had previously spoken about his admiration for both Fall Out Boy and Makonnen in a 2017 interview.
“I grew up listening to a lot of emo music, a lot of rock music, a lot of rap music, a lot of trap music, funk, everything,” the late singer said. “One of my favorite hip-hop artists is Makonnen. One of my favorite bands is Fall Out Boy. You put those two together and that’s Lil Peep.”
“My relationship with Lil Peep was one of a kind,” iLoveMakonnen added. “We were two like-minded artists collaborating to make a new style of music that the world has not heard before. It was a pleasure to work with him and his loss has been devastating.
“I hope that the music helps bring closure and happiness. All the songs that Peep and I have worked on are special to me. I knew adding his heroes Fall Out Boy to ‘I’ve Been Waiting’ would be a tribute to my friend and collaborator that I could feel proud of. When I called Pete he immediately said yes, and it came together very quickly. I’m really excited to share this with the fans.”
