The Weeknd preps the release of his debut album Trilogy due to release next week. The Weeknd has gained quite a bit of success so I’m expecting a lot from this album, but I’m not sure how much he will deliver since his first mixtape was absolutely amazing. This track gives me some hope though, the production, vocals and everything is just perfection. Sounds like his first mixtape material, but definitely worthy for an album!
Now the original Weeknd version of this song is what hooked me to them in the first place, but I have to say Ellie did an amazing job, she definitely added her own unique twist to it, and I love every bit of it. It doesn’t even compare to the original, but I absolutely love it, and I can’t wait for her to come out with new music, I love me some Ellie Goulding.
This isn’t an official The Weeknd mixtape, but rather a remixed version by Chi Duly, of some of his biggest tracks from previous mixtapes. It adds a more trance/house kind of feel to most of the tracks, taking away the R&B side of it and giving it a little more beat and bass. I haven’t heard the whole thing through yet, but from what I have heard its definitely not as good as the originals, but it doesn’t disappoint either. Anyway decide for yourself!
Also if you haven’t heard of The Weeknd, ‘House of Balloons‘ is still on HEAVY rotation
Thanks to Pinboard for the EP
