The Weeknd, debut studio album was released last month on his own label XO. In the first week his album went to #2 on the billboard charts trailing behind Keith Urban only by >5000.  This is amazing because he received no radio play and the only promotion was movie like videos posted on YouTube. His sales were driven by his internet fan base.  The Canadian native known for his dark music, kept his style on Kiss Land. He takes you to his dark world filled of drugs sex and love. Single like “Belong to the World” “Love in the sky” shows his struggle to balance his success and dealing with loving the wrong women. He only has one collaboration with a fellow Canadian rapper Drake on “Live For” which is a great song and one of his singles. I love The Weeknd for staying true to his self and his style, which is the reason why he has such a big fan base.
