The Weeknd released a cover of R. Kelly‘s 1995 classic “Down Low” and he owns it.

The Canadian singer drops his version of the song on the new episode of OVO Sound Radio on Saturday (Sept. 9). The Weekend chooses an interesting to release a cover of an R. Kelly classic given the current state of bad publicity surrounding the R&B legend with strong accusations of him having a relationship with a minor and having a sex cult ring with several young women. Weeknd has in the past said that this song inspired his career in music, so this cover shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Abel’s cover is slightly different from the original and would make good for a remix version two decades of Kelly released the song. The XO singer is currently embarking on the North American leg of his Starboy: Legend of the Fall world tour and will be performing in Boston, Washington DC, and Philadelphia this week. He was scheduled to perform at last month’s MTV VMAs but pulled out of the event last month due to fatigue from touring for most of the year. He will likely be performing this new single on future tour dates throughout the rest of the year. The tour will come to an end in December.

For the recent accusations against R. Kelly, the singer has strongly denied them saying that people are trying to tarnish his name. But at least one of his accusers came forward with proof that he paid her off to keep quiet about their relationship while she was an underage girl. This is not the first time that similar accusations are being laid against the R&B legend. Nevertheless, this cover of “Down Low” by the weekend is pretty dope, take a listen below. It kind of make you want to go listen to R. Kelly old catalog.

[Verse 1: Don Diablo]
One touch, one kiss won’t be enough
I’m on empty, fill me up
Closer, baby I want you
I’m hooked, I’m struck, I’m at your door
Desperate for a little more
Closer, baby I need you

[Chorus: Don Diablo]
If we could only slow the time
We’d have forever, every night
Oh, don’t let go
If we could only run away
We’d have forever, every day
Oh, don’t let go
Don’t let go

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go

[Verse 2: Holly Winter]
Fearless with you by my side
Stronger with your hand in mine
Better, just to be near you
Nothing standing in my way
Cross the distance, here to stay
Closer, I’ll never leave you

[Chorus: Holly Winter]
If we could only slow the time
We’d have forever, every night
Oh, don’t let go
If we could only run away
We’d have forever, every day
Oh, don’t let go
Don’t let go

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go

[Chorus: Don Diablo]
If we could only slow the time
We’d have forever, every night
Oh, don’t let go

[Post-Chorus]
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go
Don’t let go

[Chorus: Holly Winter]
If we could only slow the timeee
We’d have forever, every night
Oh, don’t let go
If we could only run away
We’d have forever, every day
Oh, don’t let go

I like the sunshine
Bouncing off your mirror shades
Well I love that you love loving me
Can’t you see?
I need a little more of your embrace
But you start to panic
You can’t stand still
You getting a message
Talk about a buzz kill
I, I, I
I want some attention
I want to put you centre stage
I, I, I
Don’t want competition
So put your phone away
Let’s roller skate
I’ve got your picture
Swimming ’round inside my head
While all the kids snapping pics
They can click on what they missed
I kinda like real life instead
Well, how about a little of that human touch?
Old school contact
Would it be asking too much?
I, I, I
I want some attention
I want to put you centre stage
I, I, I
Don’t want competition
I want a little face to face
I, I, I
I ain’t in no hurry
But baby I don’t like to wait
I, I, I
I want to be your distraction
So put your phone away
Let’s roller skate
I, I, I, roller skaters, let’s go!
I, I, I
I want some attention
I want to put you centre stage
I, I, I
Don’t want competition
I want a little face to face
I, I, I
I ain’t in no hurry
But baby I don’t like to wait
I, I, I
I want to be your distraction
So put your phone away
Let’s roller skate

[Intro: Meek Mill]
Yeah!
RIP Dex Osama, Lil Snupe
All the fallen soldiers
Scooter, Truce

[Verse 1: Meek Mill]
When they killed my nigga Snupe, I seen my young nigga
In the casket he ain’t even have no blood in him
Prolly the reason why I keep taking these drugs quicker
Ain’t got no patience for these motherfuckin’ fuck niggas
I watch everybody change, they thought I lost it
But now they all bustin’ U-ies its gon’ cost ’em
I seen Chino shut the casket on the coffin (Truce)
Killed his only big brother and we lost him
So I’ma hold it down ’til we all win
We’ve been at the clearport ballin’
I just want to see my niggas flossin’
Hundred bands everytime I walk in
If you keep it trill you’ll get a blessing for it
Deep down in the trenches with that Wesson on me
My mama, she can’t sleep, I come here early mornings (mama)
But mama I got thirty in this dirty .40
Any weapon formed against me shall not prosper
Used to pray them Ramen noodles turned to lobster
Gotta watch my own homies on the roster
Cause this the type of money’ll get your lined up

[Bridge: Meek Mill]
And I can’t trust nobody
They hit your homie and they knocked the soul out him
They said that they would ride or die but ain’t nobody roll ’bout it
Three felonies, ain’t graduate, no I am not your role model
I hope the Lord got us

[Verse 2: Young Thug]
When they killed my nigga, I seen the footage on the tape
Man I must’ve threw up everything I ever ate
Man I know he got some dice at the Heaven gates
Kicking shit with all these bitches like he’s Kevin Gates
Relax your mind and kick your feet way up
Selling dog food tryna feed my pups
Young rich nigga and I’m built Ford Tough
And I’m going through stuff
I don’t feel no love
And I shake your body and you still wake up
Taking Perkys, man I fill my cup
The feds watching and they still might come, I’m gone
I wan’ see my brother with the Patek not the static
Gucci wrap your toe up, got retarded with my daddy
All they seen was red bottoms bleeding by the casket
Perkys got me focused, I done noticed all the damages
I don’t see no purpose, in the county eating sandwiches
Lost so many niggas, I went crazy, I couldn’t balance it
You can’t question God, yeah yeah, or any of these challenges
Sipping on this Actavis, I swear I gotta manage it
SRT the challengers
Make that work do acrobatic flip, accurate
And I’m leaning like a project banister
I’m a boss, I ain’t never need a manager, got freaks, we ball scandalous, ayy

[Outro: Young Thug]
Fuck it, we ball, yeah
All the soldiers we lost, yeah
Fuck it, we ball
For all the soldiers we lost
Shawty on percocets in the bag (all the soldiers we lost)
Got a Rollie and a Pateky in my bag (all the soldiers we lost)
She just got a nose job and it wasn’t that bad (fuck it, we ball)
I was juggin’ round the city, I came back
Fuck it, we ball
Yeah, fuck it, we ball
Tear down the mall, yeah
Fuck it, we ball
Tear down the mall, ayy

[Intro: Meek Mill]
Yeah!
