The Weeknd follows up his debut tri-mitape album release Trilogy with the first 2 songs off his upcoming album Kiss Land in a 7 minute back to back clip. “Kiss Land” with the same name as the album follows his expected graphic female focused lyrics we saw on his previous releases. While “John Carptner” we get a change of pace from Abel as he talks about his drug habits and the transition from never leaving home and then seeing the world. Both track follow his dark signature style. More details on the album as they come in. Enjoy

I think that it might actually be impossible for The Weeknd to create something bad. Here are the latest extra clean visuals for one of his most highly acclaimed song “The Zone” featuring Drake, which appeared on his second mixtape Thursday. The visuals have a variety imagery ranging from shots of Abel (The Weeknd), Drake, and even the girl and balloons all capturing the essence of the Thursday album artwork.. The very well done video is actually directed by Abel himself. Look out for this, alongside all three albums getting re-released a 3 disc package Trilogy. Enjoy!

The Weeknd recently announced the re-release of his trilogy of albums under one release Trilogy, hitting stores November 13th. He also mentioned that he would be including 3 new songs. We finally get the full version of “Twenty Eight”, one of the new three after it just got premiereed by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1. Beside being the song title, “Twenty Eight” is also a common number associated with drugs (1 ounce = 28 grams), drawing the comparison of The Weeknd’s music being druglike to his listener. This song is just as incredible as the rest of the songs on three disco trilogy. Savor this radio rip until the full version. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

The Weeknd – Rolling Stone (Music Video) + Announces Release of Trilogy : Powerful Symbolic Music VideoPosted in Chill, Uncategorized by nick | Tags: The Weeknd
The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) has captured the world’s eye by releasing 3 self-produced free albums independently over the past 2 years earning him one of the most impressive underground fan bases I’ve ever seen. He attracted so much attention that major label Atlantic Records is forming his own imprint label called XO. The initial release, Trilogy will be a proper release of The Weeknd’s first three iconic releases: House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echos of Silence. You can get the proper release on November 8th. Couldn’t mean it enough, this guy is a legend in the making.

To coincide with Trilogy, he creates his first major music video, featuring video of himself for the first time. It’s for the song “Rolling Stone”, which was released on his first album House of Balloons. It’s very interesting that he chooses to make a video for this song in particular, because it brings up one of The Weeknd’s reoccurring fears, comparing loosing a girl to loosing his fans. Listen to the line “I got you baby, I got you, Until you’re use to my face, and the mystery fades” Talking about winning his fans over, luring them in with his mystery, they get used to him, and it fades. I think the video symbolizes that entire message. He has a girl holding him the whole video, then her arms get more exposed, signifying him as an artist getting more exposed. Then at the very end flashes apear more and more frequent, symbolizing getting more attention and fame. And then the girl disappears at the very end, symbolizing him loosing his underground intial fanbase that carried him up from nothing. Do you agree? Do you feel he will loose his initial underground fanbase once he enters the mainstream? Do you think because he produces all his own music his sound will never change?
Wiz Khalifa teams up with The Weeknd for an incredible smooth laid back collaboration “Remember You”. The Weekend’s smooth passionate voice really work well with the laid back hazy flow from Wiz. Enjoy!

Well he’s made a variety of other huge remixes, on top of his latest single ‘Can We Go Up’ and the Levitate EP. Well he’s been brewing up something sick, and decided to take on one of the recent tracks off The Weeknd – Echoes Of Silence release.

Starting to hack at the pile of amazing releases that I didn’t post that came out next year, first up Echoes of Silence. Canadian based singer and producer The Weeknd creates an electronic powered R&B sound that really shows how musically talented he is I don’t know what to call this, other then melodic and insanely chill. It really sets a mood as you listen to it. I didn’t know I liked R&B until I listened to this, those who might not check out something like this, give it a chance, this guys got some serious raw talent. Enjoy!

Drake teams up with fellow Canadian based singer The Weeknd. The outcome really captures The Weeknd’s electronic passionate sound. The blend between the soft and Drake’s soft rapping makes for a real sick track. The beat has the simple, yet powerful feel. Obviously I know this song’s not for everyone, but I think it will really grow on some of you. It took me awhile to dig the Weeknd, but now I love some of his stuff. Enjoy!
