SONG OF THE DAY: The Weeknd – “House of Balloons/Glass Table Girls”

 

The Weeknd has so much buzz that I’m pretty sure every music blog ever has written about him. Abel Tesfaye takes everything that R&B does right and then does it really, really well. Every song is sexy and sensual but accessible. The Weeknd is currently releasing a 3-part trilogy of mixtapes. The first, House of Balloons, got the nod from Drake. The second, Thursday was recently released to much acclaim. The third installment in the trilogy is expected to be released sometime this fall.
