The Weeknd – House Of Balloons

March 25, 2011

Damn, these dudes are blowing up right quick.  The only thing I know about them is that they’re an R&B group out of Toronto and that they apparently worked with that dude 40 that Drake shouts out in every other verse (usually he’s giving Drake advice or rolling his blunts).  Damn yo, I miss that camaraderie.  I don’t remember the last time I texted a friend just to tell them they got next.

I’ve been reading that The Weeknd sounds like Drake and The Dream which is accurate but unfair – the group has mastered the syrup-slow 808 sound that the aforementioned artists only hint at.  I’m sure it’ll be polarizing, but for fans of that sound, it absolutely hits.  First Frank Ocean, now the Weeknd?  Is this an R&B revolution for white people?  Strange enough, these are probably my two favorite albums this year.

Grab the whole album for free from their website.
