Pump went to Instagram this week to share a snippet of XXX’s long-awaited “Arms Around You” track. The single, which was produced by Jon FX and Mally Mall, was initially teased in late 2017, with a guest verse provided by Rio Santana.
On Wednesday, more than a month after XXX’s untimely death, Pump confirmed he assisted the dancehall-inspired track, which is expected to drop in the near future. Check out the preview below.
Though Pump’s post didn’t mention Santana, the artist reassured fans he would still be on the track. Santana hit up Instagram Live Wednesday evening, insisting he still owned the record and that it would eventually be released.
When that will happen? We’re not sure, but X’s record label Empire claims it will release the rapper’s posthumous album later this year.
Could this Pump collaboration appear on the project? Stay tuned.
The “Arms Around You” preview arrived just days after Pump and Smokepurpp paid tribute to X during the Lit Up Festival in Miami. X's mother, Cleopatra Bernard joined the rappers on stage while her son's hit single “SAD!” blared through the speakers.
