    The Weeknd is the alias of Canadian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye. His first album/mixtape, "House Of Balloons" on March 21st 2011, with two more, "Thursday" and "Echoes Of Silence", due later on in the year.

    I'm absolutely loving "House Of Balloons" at the moment. He's got a great voice, great lyrics and the production is absolutely top notch. If you're into Frank Ocean, you'll definitely like this.

    Fuck I love The Weeknd, I first heard about him on Pitchfork. I think he's collaborating with Drake ATM.

    I really like this album. I listened to it twice all the way through since it was released, I really have to listen to it more.

    I loved it and for about 10 mins after thought it was his best but it isn't as varied as House of Baloons which is it's downfall.

    I love how "The Host" is a part of "Initiation" in slowmo.

    It's really uncanny this is free. Or the whole series. The albums are really cohesive for free stuff. Production is great as well. I wouldn't mind calling The Weeknd progressive R&B.

    He's had a fucking amazing year. Putting out three albums, collabing with Drake and remixing Lady Gaga.

    I feel like this quality music he's been releasing for free is just crazy. I wouldn't mind paying for all three mixtapes. Especially, compared to other artists who release shitty music at a price.

    I'm addicted to the Weeknd, it just gets me in this weird mood. I love closing my eyes having my earphones in and listening to him. I can't do that with any other artist right now.
