Hot Single: Blinding Lights by The Weeknd

YouTube video titled – The Weeknd – Blinding Lights (Audio)

Here we go again, another Weeknd single to end the week. I really love the synths in this one, reminds me of False Alarm from Starboy. That Max Martin production is fantastic as well.

God, I cannot wait for this album. It has been three years since Starboy, My Dark Melancholy was but a small appetizer, I am gonna need that full meal.

Hot Single: Heartless by The Weeknd

Whew boy, this was a welcome surprised when it dropped on the 27th. This is giving me strong Starboy vibes which is a very very good thing considering it was one of my most favourite albums of 2016.

The Metro Boomin production on this is just straight heat. I cannot wait for the next single to drop from this album and it looks like we won’t have to wait very long.

Also, this track has one of the funniest lines I’ve heard this year:

Amphetamine got my stummy feelin’ sickly

Stummy, folks.

Quick Listen: Into the Unknown by TAEYEON

YouTube video titled – TAEYEON – Into the Unknown (From “Frozen 2″/Official Video)

Okay so I don’t know anything about Frozen 2 but this video showed up in my YouTube recommendations presumably because I’ve listened to a bunch of TAEYEON before this and boy am I glad I decided to give this a listen.

I just cannot get enough of her voice and she does a great job with this song.

Quick Listen: John Redcorn by SiR

That voice is incredible, just so emotive. I love the way he ends the performance by walking away from the camera while still singing.

I am checking out his 2019 album “Chasing Summer” while I type this. SiR is definitely on my radar now.

Alright so this album has been on repeat for me for the last couple weeks or so. Someone on a subreddit I frequent mentioned that a streamer was listening to TAEYEON so I decided to check her out. The first thing I saw was the above music video.
