The Weeknd is back, and with more great music! Last year the Canadian singer received a Grammy for his album “Beauty Behind the Madness”, and fans have been patiently waiting to see if his new body of work would follow in its footsteps! His fourth studio album “Starboy”, was released this past Friday and is already receiving positive feedback. I can honestly describe it as one of my favorite R&B albums of the year, and it has only been out for a couple of days! Crazy right? Many artists had highly anticipated albums this year, including The Weeknd, and he did not let us down at all.
If I could choose one word to describe this album, I would say that it is diverse. Each song has its own individual sound and personality, and I think that’s what makes this album so great. He provides us with a range from Daft Punk with the album’s first single “Starboy” and “I Feel it Coming”, to a classic R&B vibe with his song “True Colors”, and he even adds a Hip-Hop spin with his song “All I know” featuring Future.
The album has features from: Daft Punk, Future, Kendrick Lamar and Lana Del Ray. If you’re looking for something to listen to as the year wraps up I definitely recommend it! My favorite song so far is “True Colors”. Give the album a listen and let us know what you’re favorite song is! I can’t wait to hear what you think, happy listening!
Update: The Weeknd’s album “Starboy” is # 1 in over 80 countries.
