Im sure most music fans will have heard of some of his music, for example the hills has more than a billion views

I know a lot of ppl who listen to trilogy, maybe kiss land isnt very popular but there was a lot of hype when starboy was released too

I agree though there arent many hardcore weeknd fans (wouldnt say im one) but then again he did come on tour in london in march
Yeah i guess, but everyone has heard starboy and the hills etc. They haven't heard the rest of him

It's happened before. Pretty sure there's not one ****ing typo in the whole thread. APART from the title
trust me I hate when that happens, especially when you see over 10 replies asking "what do you mean by eating phones"

You won't get a lot of hate. It ain't your fault if u ain't heard it, as u probably haven't had the opportunity to hear it.

tbh the only music I've heard is kpop, before year 10 I never even used to listen to music; but as soon as I found kpop I listened to only that, and like two songs by Shawn Mendes. So yes; this thread does have a point imo

Im not saying that the thread is pointless but when an artist has a song with 1bn+ views and charts in the UK then a fair number of music fans have heard of him.

it's not pointless tbh, most people have heard of him, but the majority haven't heard of trilogy and kissland which are his best albums.

I tried anime, you can try the main thing in my life now animeamanda1412




This mans name is The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye), his music will take you on a wild journey through his life and maybe he will change you as a person for the better. (Just like he did with me). He is now my life, if he died i would be just as depressed as if one of my close family members died...

This thread might be long, but thank you if you do follow this journey. Remember, don't just admire his beautiful vocals, listening to the lyrics is key.

I will start off with some of his earliest mixtapes (not his earliest songs, but i think his earlier ones sounded too synthetic etc)

In 2010 he released 3 mixtapes that had 9 songs on each. These 3 mixtapes were called "House of Balloons", "Thursday" and "Echoes of Silence". He released these mixtapes for free to grow his popularity and was a smart marketing strategy that payed off VERY well.

Here is house of balloons (You might recognise high for this from the hugo boss advert ):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX9D...6F466B&index=1

Here is Thursday(my favourite ever mixtape):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdH1...dgjA4qk5NmwS17

Here is Echoes of Silence (You might recognise Dirty Dianna from Michael Jackson ):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXT1...6201BA77AD3BBE

In 2012 he remastered these 3 mixtapes into a compilation album called "Trilogy". The story of trilogy can be found here.
http://www.kanyetothe.com/forum/inde...topic=318487.0

Songs from trilogy that have music videos on YouTube:
Rolling Stone
Wicked Games
The Zone
Twenty Eight
The Knowing

In 2013 he released an album called "Kissland". This is based on a world he created in his head, just like how house of balloons was created based on his experiences in his hometown Toronto. Kissland is under-looked by a lot of fans which is something i don't understand as its still on another level just like trilogy. Kissland is based in Japan as it's the furthest Abel has ever travelled from home.

Here it is:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJPL...99Ef45UxVf8bcr

Songs that have music videos (these music videos are amazing):

Belong To The World
Kiss Land
Love in the Sky
Live For
Pretty

The next album is called "Beauty Behind The Madness". This information may not be correct, but this is how i like to believe it was. BBTM is about Abel selling his soul to the devil to 'light' up his career as a singer.

Here it is:
http://onlyhitss.com/englishsongs/14...songs-Download

His latest album known as 'Starboy' has a electro pop vibe to it as it features daft punk. It's about his fast growth of fame, however some believe the song party monster is also a cry for help.

I can't find a way to stream starboy (or link it), i guess you can stream it off spotify or just buy the album.

I would go into more detail about Abel in this thread but i don't really have enough time. If you want to find out more the website which tells you the story of trilogy is a good place to look, there are also many other websites if you look hard enough. Hopefully i have turned a few of you to XO. But remember to check out artists who the weeknd collabs with aswell, lil uzi vert and lana del rey are 2 personal favourites
I agree the Weekend made me feel like I was in a different place/escapism music and he was so unique when he released those mixtapes, however he's not great anymore.

His music is literally just electro pop now, like it has no feelings to his songs, since he became well known and popular, he adjusted his music to fit the likes of people who listen to pop/chart music because theres more money in targeting this market. I believe he's just become more mainstream and sadly I can't stand his music anymore, but thanks for posting this because I want to listen to the trilogy now and relive his best music.
