I'm not sure if you've heard of this artist The Weeknd . If you haven't YOU'RE about to. His voice was mistaken for Drake in the beginning by some(shame on you), his songs featured on shows and played at events, he's gaining coverage from bloggers and other media sources as well as featuring on songs with well known industry artist. The Weeknd is definitely making a name for himself as a innovative, creative artist with depth and the ability to continue to only get better. I honestly enjoy the mystery that is the The Weeknd, his wales and moans intertwined with notes and lyrics give it almost a triphop feel but the rawness is so potent you can not classify this mans work. The Weeknd's creative mind and creations do not deserve to be place in any box to be labeled a mere speck of what his music contains. I personal feel his music is similar to abstract art. It's that awesome, twisted, misunderstood, raw, dark, secretive and mysterious piece of work that grabs your attention every time.
Now for some brief history: The Weeknd is a Canadian recording artist and record producer of Ethiopian descent. Songs recorded under The Weeknd name first leaked in late 2010, though the identity of the individual behind the project was initially unknown. The Weeknd released a nine-song free album, House of Balloons, on 21 March 2011 he has released two more since them Thursday and Echoes of Silencebut in honor of around this time last year I had to blast the House of Balloons mixtape all day today.
The Weeknd= DOPENESS !!!!!!!!!
