Over the weekend (pun intended!) I kept hearing a song on the radio and I would say, "I really like this, who is it?" 3 times and 3 different songs and the answer was the same "The Weeknd". This guy is dominating pop radio and has me playing his new album, Beauty Behind the Madness on repeat.
This 25 year old Canadian got his name after "leaving one weekend and never coming back". He dropped the third e simply because there was already a group called The Weekend. He debuted himself at Coachella in 2012 and has been working hard every since. You may know his song "Devil May Cry" from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. Or maybe you know him from the smash hit "Elastic Heart" by Sia. (Yup that's him!) Of course he really made a splash with the song "Earned It", the best part to come out of the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Since then he has released hit after hit. His smooth R&B sounds remind me of D'Angelo and there are times when I swear he is channeling Michael Jackson himself.
Check him out.....
