Saturday Song The Weeknd 11-26-16

Hi everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend! I knew The Weeknd was coming out with a new album sometime this year but I didn’t know exactly when. 2LOUD2OLDMUSIC’s blog includes a Friday New Releases post every week. You can check out his post from yesterday here. His post gave me the answer as to when The Weeknd would release his latest album “Starboy!” Thank you! 🙂 I’ve been listening to the single “Starboy” on YouTube and local radio for a little over a month now. An added bonus to “Starboy” is featuring French electronic duo Daft Punk. Their sound makes the song even more interesting and unique.

I’ve always felt like The Weeknd would become popular. I’ve been listening to Abel Makkonen Tesfaye’s music since it was only available online. This morning I read a comment on YouTube that compares The Weeknd’s sound to Bruno Mars and Michael Jackson. In a sense, I agree with that statement. What do you think of this song and that statement? Take care everyone and I’ll see you on Sunday!   


  1. Yea, I remember you saying that about the Weeknd’s earlier stuff. “In the Night” kind of reminds me of Michael Jackson.

    Nah, I don’t think anyone these days can reach MJ. The Weeknd sounds like him a little though in some songs.

  2. I like the song; not so crazy about the statement. I think I’ve mentioned to you that I thought a lot of his early stuff sounded like a bunch of funeral dirges. The last album lightened him up a bit; “Can’t Feel My Face” is the best Michael Jackson knockoff I’ve heard in a while. I think Bruno is ahead of him right now, and of course he’ll never reach Michael Jackson. But he is improving in my eyes.

  3. I absolutely love this song….the beat….Daft Punk and his vocals….absolutely incredible. But, we’ve been on holiday and this windshield time got me thinking so I googled the lyrics. Oh my….Sorry to say this but I wondered if he was trippin on Xcstacy when he wrote this?! LOL I have to remind myself that I am older (turning 45 tomorrow) so some songs I’m just not going to get. Again….I love it anyways!
