House Of Balloons / Glass Table Girls (Explicit)

The Weeknd

Allegedly shrouded in mystery despite social media presence (with accompanying photos) on Twitter,Tumblr, Facebook, Sound cloud, and YouTube, as well as major support from fellow Torontonian Drake, alternative R&B a the Weeknd — a solooutlet for vocalist Abel Tesfaye —  surfaced in March 2011 with House of Balloons.  A nine-track, 50 minute mixtape made available for free download on the Weeknd website, House of Balloons was based in morose ballads filled with drug references and sexual longing. Sonically, there were clear traces of radio-friendly contemporary R&B à la TreySongz, Jeremih, the-Dream, and Drake, while appealing to listeners who favored left-of-center,production-over-song craft exponents like Spacek and Sa-Ra. The mix tape, made by Tesfaye in collaboration with producers Doc McKinney and Illangelo, among others, garnered wide spread coverage — most of which was gushingly positive –within days of its March 21 release. A second mix tape, Thursday (August 19), preceded several appearances on Drake’s album Take Care. Echoes of Silence (December 21), the third Weeknd mix tape,followed just before the end of the year. The following June, “Crew Love,” off Take Care, reached the Top Ten of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart. A few months later, he was featured on another charting single, Wiz Khalifa’s “Remember You.” After signing to Universal Republic, the three Weeknd mix tapes were remastered and bundled with three new songs for Trilogy, issued in November 2012.The set debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 chart.
