i said music and tone are different as well. would also argue delivery and vocals are pretty different too.
It's strange how people are parsing this so thin between two great R&B artists, but when there's an argument about who's the better hip-hop artist people aren't afraid to say how _________ (insert trendy underground artist) is better than Kanye (or any mainstream top 40's guy) or whatever.

I'm not one of those people. Not sure what you're getting at with that point, haha

It's being released by a major label. Even if it does get released on vinyl, it will be vastly overpriced for an inferior product.
The Weeknd gave me 3 free mixtapes, he can take my money for this.

And just because he's got major label backing doesn't mean he won't make anything himself from it. I guarantee he will. I know you didn't suggest that at all, just beating anyone to the punch who will make that comment.

Maybe you aren't, I just think it's silly that people think that there is literally no room to compare/contrast these two people and the music they make.

I would obviously take those mixtapes on vinyl as well. I'm just saying that collectively, that major labels are extremely greedy when it comes to pressing things on vinyl. If it were being released by a smaller label that actually cares about the quality of the product and offers it at a competitive price, I would take that any day.

Very true. I wouldn't see The Weeknd doing that, but it'd be nice haha.

Converge and As Cities Burn are in two different genres....

R&B is one genre. Literally the only thing Sophgod said differentiating the two was lyrical content. Music, vocals, delivery, tone, all similar as far as Ocean and Weeknd go.

the production is EXTREMELY different. i'm not exactly sure where you're getting the similarities. i mean, one guy sings about drugs and sex and the other guy is far from it. one twisted an eagles song, the other covered michael jackson.

So until this deal was signed, which we're to believe was recently, where did he receive all the funding from for his music video's, production costs and PR to date?

i'm guessing he was always on the label, it was just an experiment that worked really well. drake promoted him from day one on his personal blog, and surprise! drake's on U/R too.

It's strange how people are parsing this so thin between two great R&B artists, but when there's an argument about who's the better hip-hop artist people aren't afraid to say how _________ (insert trendy underground artist) is better than Kanye (or any mainstream top 40's guy) or whatever.

i'm not exactly sure what the hail you're getting at.

mainstream hip-hop is better than 75% of the "underground trendy" shit you speak of (for me, personally). also, i think trendy and underground are pretty contradictory.

Maybe you aren't, I just think it's silly that people think that there is literally no room to compare/contrast these two people and the music they make.

you can compare them, that's all fine. but to say they're the same genre is what's silly.

I remember when those two were beefing. The Dream wasted a good opportunity to really lay into The Weeknd. He produces his own shit and makes hits for other artist. I don't ever see The Weeknd going out and doing that.
Yeah, i think he's just a busy man. He doesn't even sign on to twitter anymore. I'm anticipating a genre defining album with The Love IV

Just don't release the Trilogy as a boxset of vinyl and I will be happy. All I want is House of Balloons.
