The Weeknd Teases New Music / Listen To Preview

Published: Wednesday 24th Aug 2016 by Sam

The Weeknd has mastered the art of the quiet slay and looks set to do it all over again.

Up until now secrecy has encased the recording of the Canadian’s fourth studio album, which serves as the follow-up to ‘Beauty Behind The Madness.’

Wildly successful, the 2015 set hit 1 million in US sales and was certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA upon the inclusion of streaming.

It’s no surprise, then, that buzz for his next step is all sorts of legitimate.

In a bid to volumize the excitement, the 26-year-old took to Instagram to preview a new song.

Listen below…

Sounds very… Weeknd-ish, which should appease his fans and continue to irk the naysayers.

    he’s always whining and screeching on songs.
    Ain’t getting my coins, that’s for sure.

      B**** you ain’t got any to begin with

        On my mother, I have at least x5 in my savings account compared to what you’ve made in the last 5 years, sucking off your overweight McDonald’s co-workers.
        Keep flipping them burgers, honey. Uneducated, broke as heifer. stick to what you’re best at — opening that mouth nice and wide.

      • Maurice August 24, 2016

        And the nerve for a disgusting, filthy Minaj stan to try and come for the Queen – you better come correct and have your receipts in check before I send you back to Nigeria, like your brother who faced deportation last year.

    Yaaaaaaas, best news I’ve heard today! King Abel ain’t playing no games! Bruno is coming this year, Ed Sheeran is coming this year…and Miss Timberlake is coming early next year…Abel has his eyes on the competition…that is important! Abel was on Pablo and Lemonade! Miss Timberlake already teased a Weeknd collaboration…Ed was on his album, so I’m sure another one may be coming…I don’t know about Bruno, but he’s coming for that top spot! And Frank just released a sonically gorgeous album! So Abel knows! He already has my coins! lol

    • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 24, 2016

      The new KING is coming. This man is the one who gave Drake his whole sound for the longest time.

      • Fancy BISH August 24, 2016

        CHILE YES! I love Drake as an artist, don’t get me wrong…but I am SO glad you said that lol…it’s been on the tip of my tongue for a long time…Take Care is the closest to classic Drake has come…and Abel gave Drake Crew Love, among others for that project…Drake could’ve used a collab from Abel for VIEWS…it was the elephant in the room as I was listening to it for the first time…The Weeknd has a writing credit on ANTI, Pablo, Lemonade, but not VIEWS…hmmm lol…and I see The Weeknd is also working with Daft Punk, that’s great…but where’s the Canadian connection that will certainly stream like there’s no tomorrow? I wish I had the REAL TEA chile lol…Drake is a great artist and his influence is undeniable tho!

  3. Ughhhh August 24, 2016

    Sounds like his mixtape tracks which are waaaaayyy better than his radio friendly albums. I’m here for it! I hate up temp Weeknd. I live for his slow ballads and beat driven r & b vibes.

    • Fancy BISH August 24, 2016

      He was on track 5 of Lemonade, so don’t even TRY IT boo boo lol

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

        I still don’t know him (Mimi voice)

  5. Suicide Blonde August 24, 2016

    I don’t get his appeal.

    • Rihboy August 24, 2016

      You and I both. Plenty of my friends love him. But I be so lost to why.

    • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 24, 2016

      You like AlcohoLana, the most boring, fake, psuedo-artist fad of the decade, your opinion is irrelevant

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

        B**** shut the f*** up. You like nicki minaj, possible the least talented and most retarded rapper of all time. Don’t be telling others that their opinion is irrelevant. You a special kind of stupid.

        Ho f*** you, go suck the weaknd’s d***. Or does he not have that? I mean his voice, it sounds like an actual woman sometimes!

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

      Young girls love him. Probably because they share the same vocal type.

  6. Molly #TheMostRelevantBitch August 24, 2016

    Yes daddy ???❤

  7. Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 24, 2016

    He’s the most unique act to break into the mainstream, all his mixtapes are critically acclaimed, he gave Drake his best body of work, defined the alternative R&B movement, music is far superior to that overrated fugly gay leprechaun Bruno, and now has every pop act wanting to emulate him. Hate all you want, King Abel will continue to win.

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

      B**** f*** you, Bruno can actually sing very well, unlike some people! And you wanna talk gay? The Weeknd’s voice! If that ain’t gay-sounding, I dunno what is! The Weeknd is overrated as hell, Frank, Miguel, Zayn all superior. I guess if you like girlish whining the WEAKnd is better.

      • Fancy BISH August 24, 2016

        Honey, Zayn trying hard to be The Weeknd…even Britney said her new album was inspired by The Weeknd lol..Frank and Miguel are very talented…ZAYN? CHILE PLEASE! The boy trying hard to be edgy, yet he’s SCURRED to get on stage! And please erase Nicole Scherzinger from your name! I LOVE me some Johnny Gill tho…wrap my body tight! lol

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

        Now why would I change my name, ugly b****!

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

        @ugly bish, funny. Wasn’t the weaknd scared to do interviews? ZAYN is a lot better. Vocally he is miles ahead of the weeknd. The weeknd’s last album is s*** compared to Mind of Mine. Kiss Land was decent but not as good as Mind of Mine. The Weeknd’s mixtapes were good but he never made a great album. And then there’s Miguel, who crushes both of them. Miguel is a lot better than ZAYN, even though ZAYN is amazing. Weaknd isn’t even in the conversation. It goes: Maxwell. Miguel. ZAYN. Frank.

        You people annoy me, the kind of people who hate on ZAYN just because he was in that shtty boy band. Or is it because he isn’t “black enough” for you? Move on, grow up! That s*** is in the past and ZAYN is making great music now! A lot of people complain about pillowtalk being bad, well you should actually give the album a try. Pillowtalk isn’t even one of the best songs.

        How dare you try to bring Slaycole down, Nicole is a Goddess! Is it because she’s not an “ugly bish” like you and you’re jealous? And I bet rap your body tight is all you know from Johnny. Your fave is not that great. BBTM was just disappointing. ZAYN took everything from the weaknd and made it better. #vocals on point!

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

        @UGLY bish, did you even hear back to sleep remix? ZAYN ki killed his verse! He sang circles around chrisy browny and even usher in that song.

      • Fancy BISH August 25, 2016

        You finished or are you done? Iol

      • UR August 25, 2016

        He sang circles around Usher? Something’s wrong with your earbuds. It’s either that or you’re trippin’.

      • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 25, 2016

        In back to sleep remix, he did. While usher was going on and on about how female genitalia tastes like fruit, ZAYN delivered a killer verse. Usher fell off man. He feel off hard. ZAYN killed him and chrissy brown on that track. I’m not saying that ZAYN is better than Usher, but if usher keeps making sht songs, and ZAYN keeps making great ones, he very well could be. Usher needs to stop following trends, I like Usher but he’s the definition of a damn trend follower. He jumped on the crunk thing when it was cool, then crunk died and Usher jumped on the dance pop thing. Now he’s trying to make an album that’s a mix of dancey pop and trap-n-b. No. Usher needs to take notes from someone like Brian McKnight or Joe. ZAYN killed his verse why can’t these dumbasses except that? At least he didn’t use auto-tune…like some others. Get your ears checked if you think Usher’s verse was better than ZAYN’s. Usher was just saying a bunch of corny s*** in his verse and it lasted to long.

    @johnnyGill @scherzinger What do you know about music? you old as hell and must be hating this talented young man how scherzinger doing is she still molesting the boys?

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

      @east african w****, lol. If I’m “old as hell”, I must be wise as hell to. I know a lot about music. More than you little shitfaced kids. The Weeknd isn’t even that talented. He sounds like a damn girl anyway. And just lol, “molesting” the boys.” Even if that were true (which it isn’t), I bet they wouldn’t be complaining, unless they were a homosexual like your girly-voiced fave.

      Miguel was around before the weaknd and he’s a lot better. Why isn’t he recognized as much, his alturnitive r&b is much better than weaknd. ANd Miguel can actualy sing. So can ZAYN. And Frank. Weeknd is nice for a few songs but then I turn him off because I can’t take any more of his girly voice singing about his genitals. That’s kinda creepy.

  9. East African girl August 24, 2016

    All of you drake fans stop hating king abel he was GHOSTWRITER for drake he wrote his best album drake must be hurting for his success #ABELISTHEKING

    • Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

  10. Johnny Gill Nicole Scherzinger Brian McKnight August 24, 2016

    Take care was probably drake’s worst album next to views. Stop d*** ridding the w for making a boring album.

    • Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) August 25, 2016

  11. Jamie August 25, 2016

    If he can’t sing, he just can’t sing. Simple as that.
