    The Weeknd


    Abel Tesfaye (born February 16, 1990), known by his stage name The Weeknd (pronounced 'The Weekend'), is a Canadian PBR&B singer, songwriter, and record producer. In late 2010, Tesfaye anonymously uploaded several songs to YouTube under the name "The Weeknd". He released three nine-track mixtapes throughout 2011: House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence, which were critically acclaimed. The following year, he released a compilation album, Trilogy, consisting of remastered versions of the mixtape material and three additional songs. It was released under Republic Records and his own label XO. In 2013, he released his debut studio album Kiss Land, which was supported by the singles "Kiss Land", and "Live For".

    The Weeknd has received praise from several music publications, including Pitchfork, MTV, BET, Rolling Stone, XXL and The Source. MTV's John Norris has dubbed him the "songbird of his generation" and the "best musical talent since Michael Jackson".

            New official single:

            Can't Feel My Face

            Being touted as "the song of the summer" in their radio promo..... impacting radio today... already top 50 and rising rapidly on iTunes. Album drops in August. Sounds like another pop hit to me. Like the article mentions, it's very MJ.

                        What kind of slayage, impressive for a pre-order, totally deserved.

                        I think he has big chance to become the next big male act since Justin Timberlake.

                                      Ok... This is how to create your very own Weeknd !

                                      1. Get a blender
                                      2. Put Micheal Jackson, Bruno Mars, Adam Levine in it
                                      3. Add a pinch of Bieber (caution: just a pinch is enough)
                                      4. Mix them all for 3.47mins
                                      5. Your Weeknd is ready at your dispose now!

                                      Ps. You can have Step 4.5 for xtra flavoring by adding a pinch of Bosson to it too... ( Incase you forgot who he was, he sang One In A Million for the soundtrack of Miss Congeniality lolol ;) ) lol
                                      Been reading UkMix everyday for well more than a decade now, and Here I am posting

                                        Just because he made some pop songs, doesn't mean he doesn't have his own sound.
                                        Often, The Hills... who else makes music like that? Definitely not Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Adam Levine.

                                          I wasnt referring to his music but my main point was his voice that happens to be a combo of so many other vocalists.

                                              1. Get a blender
                                              2. Put Micheal Jackson, Bruno Mars, Adam Levine in it
                                              3. Add a pinch of Bieber (caution: just a pinch is enough)
                                              4. Mix them all for 3.47mins
                                              5. Your Weeknd is ready at your dispose now!

                                              Ps. You can have Step 4.5 for xtra flavoring by adding a pinch of Bosson to it too... ( Incase you forgot who he was, he sang One In A Million for the soundtrack of Miss Congeniality lolol ;) ) lol
                                              Just because he made some pop songs, doesn't mean he doesn't have his own sound.
                                              Often, The Hills... who else makes music like that? Definitely not Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars and Adam Levine.
                                              I wasnt referring to his music but my main point was his voice that happens to be a combo of so many other vocalists.
                                              But what is the point of your point?
                                              You could do that for every artist's voice....

                                                Well... There seems to be a huge craze about him in the charts... And there is a big emrabce about his music too, got curious to see whats up with him and to my point of view I found his music a big mix of so many other artists and the same thing happens to be the same about his voice too. He seems trying too hard to bring every trick in the package. I think its too much.
                                                Been reading UkMix everyday for well more than a decade now, and Here I am posting

                                                  His voice is a weaker MJ but his production is very original, more so on his "mixtapes." Its what inspired Drakes huge Take Care album. That sound has carried through till now, even if he's very pop friendly and not as good. I think it's a little naive to just throw his artistry away because you can find similarities. Sure he's not exactly behind the production much but his aesthetic is pretty different than anything going on except maybe Drake.
