VIDEO: The Weeknd – “Secrets”

While you were all sleeping, I was wide awake high off of a Pittsburgh Penguins STANLEY CUP win and scrolling through Twitter.  Well, I stumbled across a Tweet from The Weeknd who announced his most recent music video for “Secrets.”

I LOVE THIS SONG.

It’s different, mesmerizing, and sort of reminded me of something from American Horror Story.  Okay, just take a look for yourself.  Watch below!

VIDEO: The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – “I Feel It Coming”

The visuals are here for one of the most epic collab songs of the year… or maybe ever.

Directed by Warren Fu, the video’s grainy and old-school feel is the perfect fit for the overall vibe of “I Feel It Coming.”  The visuals even play into The Weeknd’s starboy theme and new persona.

And as if The Weeknd’s voice didn’t already sound like Michael Jackson’s, Abel’s dance moves in this video make the MJ comparison even more real.  Actually, while watching “I Feel It Coming,” MJ’s “Billie Jean” music video came to mind.  Not necessarily all that’s happening in the vid, but the lighting, how it’s filmed, and the dance moves.  I’m digging it.  Watch below!

And while we don’t see Daft Punk until the very end, I still think the video works and flows overall.  I feel Daft Punk’s presence is best for a DJ set and this video wouldn’t be the proper setting for such.  Why am I talking in some weird proper English form?  Anyways.

Right now it’s just over 350,000 views, but I can guarantee this will hit 1,000,000 in no time.

Peep “I Feel It Coming” below!

 

MUSIC: Nav ft. The Weeknd – “Some Way”

You guys!!  Have you heard of Nav?  Have you ever listened to Nav?  Okay, well you are missing out if you’ve answered “no” to either or both of those questions.

He’s affiliated with The Weeknd so you know he’s about to put out some fire music.  He has those chill vibes that in a weird way remind me of a super mellow Travi$ Scott.

Anyways, check out his new track now featuring The Weeknd.  I’m also pretty sure Nav is working on a project of his own.  Could this be from it?

New Music From The Weeknd… Tonight

UPDATE 9:07PM PST: What did I think of the tracks?  I like “Party Monster” better than “I Feel It Coming (feat. Daft Punk).”  “Party Monster” was way more vibes and “I Feel It Coming” was like trying too hard to be vibes.  Although I did enjoy the Michael Jackson sound of that track but not my favorite.  Which one was your fave?  Or did you love both?

UPDATE 8:36PM PST: The new tracks are finally here! I’m about to listen for the first time myself so who don’t yinz do the same?  I’ll be back with my thoughts post-listen.  But if you can’t wait for that, tune into my Snap right now (ergense) and watch a live reaction.  Yeeeee.

Here!

Okay yinz, we are getting closer to two new tracks (“Party Monster” and “I Feel It Coming”) from The Weeknd’s upcoming album Starboy.

He took to Twitter about six hours ago and posted the following –screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-4-31-39-pm

While we stay waiting, peep the tracklist below.  The fact he has a song with Kendrick and another with Future sort of blows my mind… in the best way possible.

New Music From The Weeknd… Tomorrow

Earlier today, The Weeknd took to Instagram to let us know that he will be releasing two additional tracks from Starboy tomorrow.  I’m really looking forward to these.  Well, it’s actually a little bittersweet because I want to be surprised with ALL the tracks once the entire project drops but at the same time, I’m not complaining.

I don’t know what to expect from both tracks seeing as ‘Starboy’ and ‘False Alarm’ were both pretty different from one another.  Oh well – guess we’ll have to wait and listen tomorrow.

Track art below!

Starboy is set to release on November 25 aka next Friday aka Black Friday aka I have off that day. So you can more than likely expect a realtime review :).

TOUR: The Weeknd – Starboy Legend of the Fall Tour

YES!!  I was just about to Tweet and ask if The Weeknd forgot to give us the announcement but about 10 minutes ago, he released the tour dates for phase one of his Legend of the Fall Tour, and you know I have to be there.

See the dates below!

Although the tour is titled Legend of the Fall, the tour does not kick off until next February, and it will run through June.  Some on Twitter are asking if he has his seasons mixed up, but I don’t even care.  I’m just happy he’s going on tour again, and he’s the legend so he can do what he wants.

He’s not stopping in Pittsburgh, so looks like yinz should just fly out to LA and come witness the greatness with me.  However, this is phase one so maybe he’ll be announcing additional stops.  You know what I’m looking at though – that one liner at the bottom saying ‘surprise special guests to be announced.’

Stay tuned for ticket sale dates and times!

UPDATE: Out 30 minutes early, watch the video for The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ here!  I’ll embed the Vevo link when it’s up!

There’s no video yet… but there will be tomorrow.

Abel aka The Weeknd aka Starboy is dropping the visuals for his latest single ‘Starboy.’

Directed by Grant Singer, I’m sure the video will be up to par with similar projects from The Weeknd.  Why?  Grant also directed ‘The Hills,’ ‘Can’t Feel My Face,’ and ‘Tell Your Friends.’

NEW: The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – ‘Starboy’

Since tomorrow is the first official day of fall, it’s only right the King of the Fall releases brand new music from his upcoming album STARBOY.  

The song, also titled ‘Starboy,’ features Daft Punk.  Now we saw some social media hints a while back about a possible collab, so it looks like the rumors were true!

The song is currently only on Apple Music.. again, get the dang streaming service, but I’m sure it will be made available via other online sites soon.  Listen here!

I’ll post an alternate way to listen once it’s released.  Stay tuned!

And STARBOY is expected to drop on November 25.  Yeeeeee.

VIDEO: Future ft. The Weeknd – ‘Low Life’

Having just premiered on MTV, watch the sultry visuals for the highly anticipated video of Future’s ‘Low Life’ featuring The Weeknd.

Really really dig this song, so I’m glad the video is already here.  Happy Friday, yinz!

Oh, and happy birthday to one of my favorite artists Big Sean!  The G.O.O.D. Music singer turns 28 today.
