Off of The Weeknd’s back-to-back performances at Coachella and with it being 4.20 (on the West Coast still at least), I couldn’t think of a more appropriate playlist to put together for you guys. Abel Tesfaye’s music isn’t like your typical R&B. It’s dark but sexy, features slow tempos with lyrics about sex, drugs, and partying, and is typically sung in quite the falsetto. I’m obsessed.
If you haven’t listened to or even heard of The Weeknd, I highly suggest you check him out. And no I’m not just saying this because he is Drake’s protégé – he is truly talented. And having seen him perform multiple times, his talent on the stage is equally brilliant and breathtaking. Check out some of my faves below.
