Off The Tracks: The Weeknd

Well Well…here we are once again. This week’s Off The Tracks artist is The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye . I actually was exposed to this artist maybe five months ago and I was completely sold. He is an Eritrean Canadian Toronto-based R&B singer,  yes Eritrean, which is a country in Africa which is north of Ethiopia.

I wouldn’t put him a category, because he is like a jack of all trades. Just the dynamics of the slow movement of the music and his laid back vocals are magnetic! He switches from rapping to singing to rapping and the combination comes off very smooth. Check out some of his songs from his albums “____ Thursday” & “House of Balloons”:
