The Weeknd made headlines last night when a new interview saw him take (what many deemed) a jab at R&B icon Usher.
Reflecting on his own impact, the singer told Variety that he was first flattered then angered by what he felt were similarities between his sound and Ush’s 2012 smash ‘Climax.’
The comment ignited ample debate, with the overwhelming sentiment being…confusion.
Now, Mr Raymond has weighed-in. See what he had to say below…
Replying in song via Instagram Stories, he signalled the start of the #ClimaxChallenge and made the note-perfect first entry himself.
Watch and clock the lyrical “edit” at the end:
No word on whether The Weeknd will be submitting his entry.
