Peep This: The Weeknd – “Tell Your Friends” (prod. by Kanye West)

Hate or love the direction Abel Tesfaye has pursued in recent times,  The Weeknd has nearly equated his success in 2015’s r&b to that of the mentor/big brother that first broke the barrier for him. Having three singles hold top spots on the Billboard charts tends to have that effect, but the blog-o-sphere sensation turned modern r&b-icon still has an album to (officially) drop and a tour to follow, meaning Abel’s just getting started. The follow-up to “Can’t Feel My Face,” a Kanye-powered track, “Tell Your Friends,” offers a a desert excursion soundtracked by the lo-fi, minimal track that’s reminiscent of a gangster movie score, Weeknd-ified by the Toronto native’s signature falsetto and raunchy wordplay. Check the video above.
