“Falling Down,” a posthumous collaboration between Lil Peep and XXXTENTACION, has officially been released.
The track was created after Peep’s 2017 death by utilizing an unfinished song titled “Sunlight on Your Skin” he recorded with iLoveMakonnen. X heard a snippet of the cut and recorded his own parts for it before he was shot and killed in June 2018.
X’s family connected with Peep’s management to make the song a reality. According to a recent interview, iLoveMakonnen gave his blessing since the track was originally created for his own collaborative project with Peep.
Prior to the song’s release, X’s mother billed it as “from Peep’s mom and I.” The track has sparked some controversy though due to disputes over whether Peep would’ve actually worked with X while he was still alive.
