I remember the first time I heard The Weekend, when his debut House of Balloons dropped early last year; mesmerizing and deeply emotional, Abel Tesfaye AKA The Weeknd had me and his other listeners in his grips. It’s been a year and a half since and in that relatively short span of time the lonely singer has more or less skyrocketed from the depths of under-appreciated artistry to the heights of the top 5 Billboard 200, with his recently released Trilogy.  Catch him performing House of Balloons track “Wicked Games” during his first non-American television performance on Later…with Jools Holland below. And if you’re late getting on The Weeknd train, cop Trilogy – a compilation consisting of remastered versions of his 2011 mixtape catalog – out in stores now.

    This group has a great future in front of it and I’m hoping they get that airplay and other support they need. Due has an excellent voice; kind of haunting and the music styled behind it fits perfectly, I love this band’s sound and will be purchasing their music soon. Good Luck!!!!!
