SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott – Power Is Power



The WeekndSZA, and Travis Scott have joined forces for a Thrones-expanding collab. Check out “Power Is Power,” which dropped Thursday after some ominous teasing, below.

The track could be interpreted as seeing the three artists taking on the perspectives of Thrones characters. The Weeknd’s contributions here (“I was born of the ice and snow…”) suggest a bit of Jon Snow, while SZA and La Flame are presumably holding down the Daenerys and Night King voices, respectively. In the chorus, Abel sings of a desire to burn down his own power:

I rise from my scars
Nothing hurts me now
‘Cause power is power
Now watch me burn it down

For the Throne: Music Inspired by the HBO Series Game of Thrones boasts additional guest appearances from ASAP RockyJoey Badass, Ellie Goulding, Lil Peep, Ty Dolla Sign, Chloe x Halle, and more. Stream “Power Is Power” below and pre-order For the Throne on iTunes. The project will be available April 26 via Columbia Records on all major streaming services and traditional providers.
