Bishop Nehru Drops Four New Songs
i bet miguel is in to the ps3 devil may cry
That's the shit i don't like
and it's Produced by Rick Rubin
The Weeknd reminds me of Maxwell
Amazing id almost lost hope in the weeknd after his soft effort on kiss land but this song switches up his formula enough to get me back on the bandwagon for now. 5/5
Kiss Land was just a different vibe/concept. He's done something different with each release. Obviously people are gonna vibe with HOB the most because it had more r&b and upbeat stuff. Sonically I loved Thursday too, especially the incredible The Birds Pt.1 & 2, and Echoes of Silence was my least favorite. He is a true artist and does whatever he wants. If he wanted he could make r&b and hip hop bangers but they wouldn't necessarily fit into whatever concept he's going for. You can see some of that with him pretty much giving away good songs that were leftovers to rappers like Wiz and Juicy J. I bet he comes out with something more for everyone on his next record and people will like him even more for it. Sorry for the essay haha
@APB, The reason I didn't like Kiss Land as much as the Trilogy, is because it really seemed toned down to me, like there was some label breathing down his neck saying no don't talk about drugs so much it will alienate the fan base we are going for. I wasn't there so I could be wrong, but I don't get the same dangerous vibe I got from his earlier stuff. It was still a pretty good CD, but I haven't played it in a month or so, just din't have the lasting impression I got from House of Balloons.
Kiss Land is the best album I've listened to in years. I don't know how you think he had a "soft effort." This song is similar to Love in the Sky, Belong to the World, Tears in the Rain, Adaptation etc.
I like this song a lot...but Weeknd's last album was so disappointing
was great album in my opinion... a little different...but it was good
Yes he and his band are incredible live. Must see especially for people who question the music
I hear ya. I kinda felt the same way too but then I saw him sing kiss land in concert and it was a whole nother experience
Go to datpiff and download the weeknd warrior beat tape for dope beats like the weeknd/drake style

Dude is better than Michael "Pedo" Jackson.
bro never ever!!!!!speak fuckin again talkin about mj
um not even fucking close bro. doesn't matter if you think MJ was a "pedo" his voice and ability are maybe the best of all time. this song is pretty sick but he is no where in the same ballpark as MJ
I tried listening to some of illangelos stuff except The Weeknd, and they are good, but Im still a TheWeeknd fan. They two together are a dreamteam though.
Im starting to notice that I never really a fan of the weeknd but more so a fan of illangelo's production/mixing
