Thread: The Weeknd for 2012?

  1. #1

    Default The Weeknd for 2012?

    This dude released the sickest R&B mixtape I've heard in forever...think Drake with prettier melodies, creepier/darker tone (the second half of the last song I posted is the creepiest R&B song I've heard to date) and references to drug comedowns and you have this guy's formula. I was waiting to get really excited about a Coachella performance until I heard more music from him to prove that his mixtape wasn't just lucky...Pitchfork just posted his new song this morning and it's absurdly pretty.

    Late night, preferably last slot, in the Gobi would be baby making music...it could be hazy and intimate, which is exactly what his music is like.

    And since Coachella is only going to give one of these two guys a shot, I'll just go ahead and say it...The Weeknd > Frank Ocean, although Coachella should really give us both after Miguel as the "new R&B" act this year...

    Bet you Drake AND The Weeknd are at the polo fields next year.

    Default Re: The Weeknd for 2012?

    Bah I'm in rural Virginia for a family reunion and my internet is abysmally slow...how is the new mixtape? I want homeboy to tour so bad, Coachella performance would be awesome but I feel like he's a sure shot to close a tent (probably Gobi) which would put him in a prime spot for conflicts (a la Gayngs last year).

    I'd rather have Drake pop in for a couple surprise appearances (The Weeknd, or if SBTRKT gets a live set) than a full set...if we get somebody really poppy this year, I'd much rather it be Nicki Minaj's crazy ass. Sue me.

    I like it a lot, although House of Balloons set the bar so high for me. This will be a grower for several months, but I really love "The Zone," "The Birds Pt. 2," and "Heaven or Las Vegas."

    I'm not disappointed with Thursday but I am definitely more of a fan of House of Balloons. I agree that after a few more listens though, I will be more attached to the album.

    I've listened to it about six times so far, and I can feel myself liking it more with each listen.

    I like it, but not nearly as much as I did House of Balloons. The Zone and Rolling Stone are the two standouts for me right now, but I bet some of the other ones will grow on me.

    Not sure yet about this yet. Sounds too melodic and pretty without something substantial. I'll give it a try since enough of you bumped it.

    Try House of Balloons first. It's much better than Thursday in my opinion.
