The Weeknd is Tdot’s up and coming artists that I have a hard time figuring out. That is what makes The Weeknd’s House of Balloons one of my favourite albums. The album is a perfect mash of a soulful voice, dark, underground music and R&B lyrics. Painful, romantic, raw, soulful, honest, lonely, hard to stop listening to.

Given all the attention the The Weeknd got because of Drake, he remains modest with a very simple web-site where you can download his album for free, and respectful interviews. It’s been a while since I heard an artist true to his style, proud of his music and not full of himself… although time will tell for sure. None the less, I am impressed with The Weeknd and I hope new artists will aspire to be artists first and celebrities after.
