The Weeknd

 

The Weeknd.

Abel Tesfaye, obviously of Eritrean or Ethiopian extraction, though a Canadian, is apparently a hot new thing coming up out of the music cloud that is Drake. He goes by the name The Weeknd when putting out music and has been bubbling away underground for a while, say the music blogs, putting out free ‘mix tapes’ to build a following.

And it seems to be working. This is chilled, laid back, interesting stuff. And it’s free to download. What could be better?

Definitely worth the download time and certainly worth the listening time if you like R&B with a bit of an edge — smooth though the sound may be.
