juicy j and the weeknd

Both Juicy J and The Weeknd have seen similar rises to fame as solo artists in the past few years, capitalizing on impeccable production and an encyclopedic knowledge of banned substances. If Juicy’s “let’s get fucked up” anthems or Abel Tesfaye’s pseudo-rape ballads aren’t your thing, you probably shouldn’t listen to “One Of Those Nights” because it pretty much stays with the preexisting script. Abel singing “she can’t feel her knees” and Juicy evoking a “yeah hoe!” chant clearly won’t result in much innovation, but fuck that, “One Of Those” nights is fun as hell in all its deranged, darker than night glory.

According to several Chicago news sources, Lollapalooza has begun to drop hints about potential performers, but you’ll have to be paying close attention. Today, on Chicago’s public transportation system, CTA ads on video screens in the Logan Square Blue Line station have reportedly been displaying lines from song lyrics, followed by “#Lolla.” According to these ads, we can expect to see Die Antwoord, Justice, The Weeknd, and Jack White at this year’s Lolla festival. Here are the four reported hints, via Wine & Pop:

– “I fink u freeky” from Die Antwoord’s “I Fink U Freeky”
– “Do the D.A.N.C.E.” from Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”
– “I got a test for you” from The Weeknd’s “Initiation”
– “I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me” from Jack White’s “Love Interruption”

It remains to be seen whether these first four hints provide the festival’s headliners, or whether even more exciting additions are to come. If you’re in the Chicago area, keep an eye out for new Lolla clues, because their video-screen locations means they could be changing by the minute. Here’s a photo from one of the CTA ads, displaying the lyrics to Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”:
