By now all of you should have bought The Weeknd's new album and it's no surprise that he dropped a visual to "Live For", one of my favourite records on the project. The song features the artist that co-signed him in the first place, Drake, and the music video resembles "The Zone" which was released a few years ago. Being from Toronto, this is more than just a music video to me. It's honestly a statement of where Toronto talent is right now, and I'd say, it's at the best it could be. Let me know what you guys think!
A lot of shots were fired when Drake dropped 5 AM in Toronto earlier this year and people were speculating if some of them were directed at The Weeknd. When I read over the lyrics and noticed the tweets between the two artists I couldn't help but agree, that the two had a falling-out. Well, recently The Weeknd dropped a new single off Kiss Land which features the fellow Toronto artist and people can now take breath of relief that they're back to making music together. Take a listen and you'll see why The Weeknd and Drake are known for that "Toronto Sound".
The Weeknd is on a roll, this time with a latest single from Kiss Land, which will be dropping September 10th. Be sure to listen to "Love In the Sky" which is a lot less lighter than his previous works, and lot more romantic. It's obvious The Weeknd is in his own genre. Let me know what you guys think!
The Weeknd clearly isn't slowing down this year. After dropping collaboration joints with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, French Montana and Juicy J, The Weeknd is now onto his first solo venture through Kiss Land. This will be his first album with brand new content and will be released on September 10th, close to Drake's Nothing Was The Same on the 17th. Check out his visual to his new song "Belong to the World", which talks about commitment.
The Weeknd will be embarking on a 28-city North American tour this fall to promote his highly anticipated sophomore album, Kiss Land. The tour starts off in Vancouver on September 6th, making stops in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Chicago before ending in the singers hometown of Toronto where he will perform three shows at Massey Hall. Opening acts for these dates will include Australian EDM artist Anna Lunoe and Los Angeles singer Banks. Although there is no release date for Kiss Land as of yet, the album is set to be released later this summer via XO&Co./Republic Records. Tickets for the Toronto shows will go on sale Friday July 12 at 10AM.
