It’s a Friday full of Lana Del Rey.

After dropping her single “Terrence Love You” a post or two ago, the singer appears on a leaked song from The Weeknd‘s upcoming LP, Beauty Behind The Madness, called “Prisoner.”

The song sounds straight out of The Weeknd’s era of his trilogy of mixtapes that shot him into stardom, with him crooning over muddled, bass- and synth-heavy production about heartbreak. The two each take a verse surrounding The Weeknd’s belting chorus proclaiming he’s a “prisoner of your love.” There doesn’t seem to be much depth to it, but at least the highly anticipated song, sonically, sounds nice.

Listen to “Prisoner” below. Hopefully the CDQ drops soon along with an official release of it. (The artwork above isn’t official artwork. Someone on Tumblr, where the song leaked first, made it/found it.)
