The Best Of The Weeknd

The music behind the number #1 artist in the country

The Best Of The Weeknd

These days, it's hard to steer clear of the Weeknd. If you've tuned in to a pop radio station or turned to one of the big three music channels (MTV, VH1, Fuse), then you're bound to hear either Can't Feel My Face or The Hills. This alone, proves that The Weeknd has reached an incredible amount of success over the past year.

Can't Feel My Face has gone double platinum in the United States in the course of a couple short months, as well as his single The Hills. The Weeknd's unique sound and his iconic hairstyle have been loved and heard all over the world. He has truly become a household name. That makes me super proud as a longtime fan. But I think that people should listen to more of The Weeknd's music besides his hit singles. His repertoire is longer than some may think, so I'm going to introduce you all to some of The Weeknd's lesser-known hits.

In no particular order:


The Zone - The Weeknd Feat. Drake

You can tell how old this song is by The Weeknd's baby fro.

This song has a special place in my heart. It's the first The Weeknd song that I've ever heard because of the affiliation with Drake. The song's very atmospheric and captivating and The Weeknd's voice sounds marvelous. I think it's a song that everyone should listen to at least once.


D.D. - The Weeknd

This new age Michael Jackson cover is marvelous. It proves that, unlike a lot of other popular singers, The Weeknd can truly sing. It showcases his range and his unique tone. I love it.


The Party and The After Party - The Weeknd

The contrast between the two songs tells a great story in itself. The song's concept is dope and I can never bring myself to skip it when I run across The Weeknd's mixtape on my iTunes. It's just that good.


Belong to the World - The Weeknd

This epic song is from his last album, Kiss Land. The progression from the other songs is obvious in the production quality. It sounds like the sound track of a summer blockbuster field. You can close your eyes and visualize the song vividness of the song. That's awesome in and of itself.


Dark Times - The Weeknd. Feat Ed Sheeran

I just listened to his latest album, Beauty Behind the Madness, a week ago, and this has to be one of my favorites. It's dark, gritty, and raw but equally as beautiful. Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd are a great duo and I can't wait to see them make more songs together.

I hope I gave you enough Weeknd to get you through to the weekend. Happy listening!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
