The Weeknd: {Music Monday}

Ramona Thoughts 4 Comments

Okay. Okay. I know I’m probably late to the game. But, I’ve been listening to music by The Weeknd lately. When I first heard his name, I was slightly confused. I must admit it took me a few minutes to understand. But, the confusion stopped there. His music is new and refreshing with a touch of soul, electric funk. He has ballads as well as up-tempo songs. I like his voice, the lyrics and his delivery. His method is smooth and sultry, while not being too overwhelming. I can listen to him on repeat for sure!

The Weeknd recently won the Centric Awards [at the BET Awards] for his song, “Earned It,” from the Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack. He performed on the show. Check out his performance, “50 Shades of The Weeknd,” >> HERE and below. It was nice to see him collaborate with Alicia Keyes for the live performance. I’m an Alicia fan too!

“Earned It” is a hot song. However, he has other songs that I enjoy as well. Check out a few more of my favorites (links contain NSFW lyrics):

    I’ve never heard of him but I love an eclectic artist. Will have to check him out. Funny, I thought your post was a weekend recap with your own special way of spelling weekend. LOL.

      Thanks for the comment, MJ. Yea, I think you will like him. I can understand the confusion. His name is definitely easy to misconstrue. You should check him out soon!
