    [​IMG] how long until this thread blows up like the Frank Ocean one?

    Question for those who have heard it, which tape do you guys prefer if you had to choose? I'm feeling this one way more and I really like the Frank Ocean tape. This one I don't skip a track and has way stronger tracks overall. Frank Ocean's tape, while smooth as hell, had some tracks I could have done without.

    Only reason I even compare the two is because they're both new, up-and-coming RnB artists pushing the genre forward with really strong mixtapes out around the same time.

    Is 40 a factor at all in this dude's production so far? [​IMG]

    Nope, he works with producers from Toronto named Doc Mckinney & Illangelo.
    He'll most likely work with 40 in the future, though.

    If you haven't heard much about the Weeknd, it's because there isn't much info out there on them-- that is, if the mysterious project affiliated with Canadian multimedia collective She's So Lovely XO is a "them" and not just a "him" or "her". Who, exactly, makes up the Weeknd is at this point an open question, with talk of label interest and the involvement of Drake producer Noah "40" Shebib also making up the attendant chatter. But what about the music? Well, at the moment, the Weeknd have three songs to their name: the Beach House-sampling "Loft Music", the syrup-slow "The Morning", and the project's finest track thus far, "What You Need".

    The distant vocal sample and hollow, snapping beat that open the track initially suggest that you're in for the type of Bristol-born banger that you'd get from a UK bass-centric label like Punch Drunk; it's genuinely surprising, then, when "What You Need" unfolds into a twinkling, moonlit R&B protestation all made the more sensual by an anonymous, butter-dripping voice challenging a lover's relationship with suggestive come-ons. It's plenty sexy, but there's also a tinge of melancholy to the song, particularly when the vocalist hits the both-sides-repeated chorus: "He's what you want/ I'm what you need", a sentiment sounds as much like a self-reassurance as it does an enticement.

    A friend I went to school with is tight with him; he put me on last year.

    Dare I say that this decade might be the best ever for Canadian music?

    This is better than Frank Ocean's tape. Y'all slurped the hell out of that Frank Ocean mixtape and it wasn't even that good. [​IMG]
