Yesterday, a graphic promoting the new tune abruptly appeared on XXXTENTACION’s official Instagram. The pic’s caption simply read, “dropping tomorrow @ 9 a.m. EST.” The same graphic then appeared on Lil Peep’s Instagram story.

On X’s story, however, an additional image rolled before the big reveal. And it’s text featured a heartbreaking line from from one of the “SAD!” singer’s last studio sessions for “Falling Down” before his untimely death at age 20.

“His name will live, brother. I feel hella shitty because it’s like, if I would’ve known he was so cool, I would’ve fucked with him sooner.”

That passage seems to posit a (dubious but affecting) retrospective reaction from XXXTENTACION on Lil Peep’s death last year from an overdose. X himself passed away this past June, the young rapper a victim of gun violence.

The poignancy underscores the eerie breeze blowing through the ILoveMakonnen-helmed “Falling Down,” the song’s stoic verses flowing unearthly into a liquid hook. A stunning tribute to X and Peep, the latter who tragically died at 21.
