The masked EDM star revealed on Twitter that a collaborative effort between the two would arrive this Friday (January 12). While some fans questioned his decision, in the wake of other artists withholding their work with Peep, Marshmello revealed that Peep's mother had a say in the song's release.
"I didn't plan on releasing the song until Peep's mom reached out and told me she wanted her son's music to come out," the producer said. "What am I supposed to do?"
You can find his tweets below.
LIl Peep died last November at age 21 of a drug overdose.

But everyone said that they'd release their tracks when the felt the need. I.e Bexey has coke nails, and is waiting for a drop date because he wants to wait till he feels ready.
