Lets slow it down a little bit on Valentine’s Day. Abel Tesfaye, known as The Weeknd out of Toronto, Canada, of Ethiopian decent, has been gaining a lot of momentum every since Drake gave a shout out via Twitter. With a slow, crooning sound exhibiting strong blues influences tied into falsetto, The Weeknd has a bunch of tracks that will have you stuck on repeat. House of Balloons, a 9 track mixtape, dropped back in 2011, instantly gaining critical acclaim and beating out Watch The Throne and Drake’s Take Care for the title of #1 album by Complex.
Trilogy, the newest tape by The Weeknd, compiles remastered versions of previous mixtapes, with you guessed it 3 new tracks. The song being featured here, “Twenty Eight” is the bonus track to Trilogy.
Sorry I was unable to find the original version on Soundcloud, so this tagged version will have to do.
