The Weeknd's New Album is Fire

I first heard of this artist like most mainstreamers: while watching Fifty Shades of Grey. Two songs appeared in the film which led me to immediately google the lyrics. The voice, the melody, and the sensual style drew me. Thereafter the hubby and I were hooked. The Weeknd does that to couples, or anyone for that matter. 

Then there was Aug. 28th. The Weeknd dropped a new album on this date featuring artists such as Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Ray; need I say more? As my nephew put it, this album is FIRE!

You're going to have to be okay with explicit lyrics, a lot of them. There will be no disappointment with Beauty Behind the Madness. In true The Weeknd form, it's sexy hot music. It's also different than other popish music out there. Songs don't all sound the same and beyond the occasional explicit lyrics, his sentiments about love, heartbreak and desire resonate.

Do yourself a favor and check out this album. Once you're done with it, move on to all other jams by The Weeknd! I suggest the Trilogy album. I especially like What You Need and Wicked Games, but again, lyrics are explicit, just the way I personally like music intended to be sexy -- because what's sexy without the occasional p****y or F bomb?

Who are you listening to these days?
