This is a new segment I want to introduce to you all. In this new segment I will be talking about all the new and upcoming artist! Since I’m a music freak and always searching for new artist, that’s why I wanted to do this segment. So, The Weeknd got the honour to be the first I’ll be talking about!
I guess a lot of people know The Weeknd by now, haha. He is still new, but have gained a lot of fame already! With his hits as Often, Earned it, Can’t feel my face and his own cover of Drunk In Love by Beyoncé, he gained a lot of attention by celebrities, music lovers (bloggers), magazines, etc.
The first time someone introduced me to him I wasn’t really interested and satisfied. The second time I listened to him it was something different. It felt different so at that time it captivated me – I don’t know if that is the correct word for it, but oh whale.
His music is so good! The lyrics seperated from his voice, haha. The lyrics that he write is so generative, but his voice is so smooth. The songs are just the typically modern day songs, but his voice set his music apart from other artists! The way he sing isn’t as special as well, just his voice makes everything different from the others and that is what makes him so outstanding! He really deserves to gain more fame than he does now and I bet he will gain more fame.
