Back in March 2021, Francis took to Twitter to tease the collab by sharing a screenshot of a text message conversation between himself and ILLENIUM, refraining from divulging any details. Now, after a fan revived the tweet over 10 months later, the famed "Not Butter" producer has confirmed the track will release this year.
Francis also revealed a new project on the way called This Mixtape Is Fire Too, the hotly anticipated follow-up to his 2015 EP This Mixtape Is Fire.
Fans have been clamoring for This Mixtape Is Fire Too after the meteoric success of its predecessor, a seven-track EP featuring fan-favorite hits like "Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)" and "Bun Up the Dance" (with Skrillex). A breakthrough for Francis, the EP doubled as a song-cycle of his pioneering hybrid of electro and moombahton music.
