If Ed Sheeran is right, a collaboration between The Weeknd and Kanye West is on the way. He dropped the tip about a The Weeknd/Kanye song during a recent interview on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.

Complex points out that Sheeran brought up the track while sharing a story about going to a party at The Weeknd's house in Toronto. While they were drinking, The Weeknd apparently invited Sheeran to come back to work on a song with him the next day. As Sheeran recalls: "In my head I'm like, 'The Weeknd doesn't want to write a song!' The Weeknd doesn't work with anyone. He's got one feature on his album, which is Kanye West. He doesn't want to do that."

But, as it turns out, Sheeran and The Weeknd did get together again to work on a song -- and the "Thinking Out Loud" singer says it "is really, really f---ing good."
