The Weeknd Kiss Land

If you haven’t heard of The Weeknd, then you’ve clearly been missing out on one of the best talents Toronto has to offer. It’s hard to categorize his music because he doesn’t stick to a specific sound and that’s what sets him apart from the other artists. The production value on songs like “House of Balloons” and the gritty lyricism through his songs like “Rolling Stone” creates his own lane as a new-age R&B sound. To think after dropping his album, The Trilogy, he would slow down but instead he started 2013 by collaborating with more artists, from Wiz Khalifa to French Montana. Take a listen to his new title track off his upcoming album, Kiss Land, which incorporates two tracks, “Kiss Land” & “John Carpenter” in an 8 minute masterpiece.
