Quavo is gearing up to honor his late nephew and groupmate on a new record. “Honey Bun,” which is set to release Friday, was announced by the Head Huncho on Tuesday (March 28). He posted the cover art for the single which is a line of limos in the form of the letter “H.” Quavo captioned the photo, “[honey pot emoji]HONEY BUN [honey pot emoji], Friday! #RocketPower [rocket emoji].”

In another post on Instagram, Quavo featured what looks like stills from a possible accompanying music video. The grainy photos show a man getting into a matte black truck wearing a black and red leather bomber jacket. In the last shot, it shows what seemingly are fans taking snapshots of the famous individual.  Quavo captioned this post, “We Gone! [rocket emoji] [black heart emoji] [honey pot emoji] Friday!”

This is not the first time that Quavo has honored Takeoff through music. Back in January, Quavo released “Without You.”

“Tears rolling down my eyes / Can’t tell you how many times I cried / Days ain’t the same without you / I don’t know if I’m the same without you,” he sings over the somber beat.

He later performed the song alongside the Maverick City Choir during the “In Memoriam” segment for the Grammys on Sunday (Feb. 5).

Quavo releasing “Without You” marked the second time that Quavo has openly addressed Takeoff’s death. In a three-page tribute, Qauvo said, in part, that his nephew had a “real passion” for music. He said that he was the one that created the triplet flow that became Migos’ signature sound.  “I am proud to be ya uncle. I’m proud we saw the world and done things we couldn’t ever imagine together,” Quavo wrote.

Takeoff was shot and killed on Nov. 1  outside a Houston bowling alley. This came weeks after Quavo and him released their first collaborative album as a duo Only Built For Infinity Links.
