Not much is known about upcoming Toronto band The Weeknd, but they have a thriving buzz from tracks that have been leaked online over the last few months. The music you will find on their debut project House Of Balloons is far from the typical R&B that you hear on the radio every day. Lead vocalist Abel Tesfaye has very smooth sound reminiscent of Def Jam recording artist Jerimih (but with much greater range) while the band’s producer Jeremy Rose is behind the beats of what I would refer to as “Experimental R&B”. The Weekend gives us something new and refreshing that can not really compare to anything you have ever heard before. Women may love the predominately smooth & sexy lyrical content, while guys will indulge the excellent production that contains hard hitting drums and banging bass. Indeed, House of Balloons perfect for listening in you car during rush hour on your way home from work, or playing in your condo while entertaining guest.
