i'm just stirring the pot lol, but really It does sound way different than what I would expect to hear and after listening to about 4-5 songs, I'm not into it in the slightest bit. do not see what elements make people like this that much
I kind of agree with this statement, though I disagree with your first one about him sounding like the Cab, Backstreet Boys, etc. I think The Weeknd is overrated. His voice is really whinny. I'd take Frank Ocean over The Weeknd any day.
