Weeknd's first proper studio album is out and it is absolutely brilliant.
So much atmosphere it's unbelievable. The lyrics are porn-like, the beats are catchy as hell. His voice is incredible, as always.
"Belong to the world" could be the sound of Michael Jackson if he was alive in 2013 and had the creativity from "Thriller". The title track is a stunning two-parted ballad.
I'm not sure if this is a concept album, but to me it sounds like it. Big cities. Darkness. Sex. That's pretty much it.
Buying this on vinyl the day it comes out.
