You might want to sit down for this one.
The Weeknd, SZA and Travis Scott are apparently teaming up and working on a song together.
The Weeknd is rumoured to have recruited the Love Galore duo for a new track he’s putting together for the upcoming (and last) season of Game of Thrones.
With all respect to the Avengers, we’re going to have to say this is our new favourite supergroup.
No official confirmation from the artists or from the HBO smash hit, but some social media sleuths have been busy connecting the wires and collecting evidence that all point to an epic Weeknd x Westeros collaboration.

It’ll be interesting to see how a song from three of the world’s current biggest artists fits into the fictional, fantastical, pseudo-Medieval world of Westeros. We’ll have to wait to find out when GOT returns for its final season on April 14.
Not only have we received official confirmation that songs exists and will be released to the world, we’ve also gotten a look at the impressive motley crew of artists set to appear on the soundtrack for GOT’s final season.
