The Weeknd comes early

House Of Balloons has been one of my most-played mixtapes in 2011, so I was thrilled to see that some new tracks by The Weeknd were leaked today. Six beautiful slices of R&B mystique served up by Canada’s Abel Tesfaye showcase not only his ability to craft lush, smokey-dark subversions, but also his ear for perfect pop hooks. The Weeknd might be mainly hyped by blogs right now, but with tracks like these he’s going to be hitting mainstream radio any time now. Check out the tracks below.
