The Weeknd - High For This

I first heard The Weeknd’s House of Balloons mixtape back in April.  Funny thing about music, like movies and most art forms, timing is important.  I was almost put off by this record the first few times I listened and now I can’t get enough of it.

The Weeknd - Wicked Games

The Weeknd are Canadian duo Jeremy Rose (production) & Abel Tesfaye (vocals) serving up a darker strain of R&B.  They’ve been almost over-hyped in the music blogosphere since the first in a trilogy of mixtapes dropped back in March.  

DISCLAIMER:  As a general rule, I find songs with lyrics that overuse profanity (fuckin’ and motherfuckin’ in this case) to be a turn off.  For months that was the case with this song.  But it kept popping up on music blogs I follow, and I kept tuning in.  Once desensitized to the lyrics, I completely fell for the song.   Dark and almost disturbing but very motherfuckin’ sexy.
