I’m not the most active music connoisseur—mixtapes are like aliens to me. Unless they land on my house or zap me into the sky, I hardly know they exist. So The Weeknd releasing all his former mixtapes in one nicely packaged place, along with a few new additions, was like my own personal dream come true.
Once I listened (and listened, and listened and listened) I realized two things: No. 1, I was a total assh-le for waiting so long and No. 2, The Weeknd knows exactly what he’s doing. His vulnerable croons seriously feel like they were written just for me and as much as I hate to admit it, I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way.
