Abel Tesfaye or better known as The Weeknd is a Canadian based singer, songwriter & producer. He started his career in 2010 and has released three albums total - Trilogy, Kiss Land and his latest album Beauty Behind The Madness.
Swathed in R&B, pop and electronic music, Beauty Behind The Madness is a record about drugs, relationships, and sex. Tesfaye's vocals have a tendency to grab your attention right from the start. He conveys a lot of passion and emotion, and there are even moments when he reminds me of the late Michael Jackson.
Beauty Behind The Madness also boasts two Billboard Hot 100 number one singles, "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face." The song “Earned It” was also featured in the “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie as well. The overall quality of the album sounds amazing. The production is smooth and crisp. I was never much of a Weeknd fan, but his latest release is worth checking out. It just might win you over too.
