The Weeknd

The Weeknd is Abel Tesfaye, an R&B artist from Toronto, Canada. Abel started uploading songs to YouTube in 2010, and has sampled such artists asBeach House and Siouxsie and the Banshees. In March of 2011 he dropped his first mixtape, House Of Balloons. Each track is a marvel of texture,drawing from the aching moans of screw music and the sexual impulses of early 1990s new jack swing, all buried in a hazy cloud that’s part too-coolaffectation, part bleeding-out puddle. The vocals, sometimes sung and sometimes rapped, talk about ugly things in a pretty voice, making for a toneof flashy bohemianism. Drake, the group’s citymate, toys with a similar aesthetic, but the Weeknd takes his ambivalent emotional tenor and stretchesit out, building a whole worldview from it.
