New Weeknd Tracks Take the Top Spots
The Weeknd's long hiatus since 2018 is finally broken with the release of two new tracks "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights". Within the first day of the music hitting streaming platforms the songs jumped to number 1 and 2 on the Spotify top 50, amassing over 1.3 million streams per day. Although both songs are being unanimmously loved by listeners across the globe, they are totally different in style.
"Heartless" is a song reminiscent of many we have heard and enjoyed from The Weeknd. His distinct style of blending deep intense lyrics with his smooth tenor, over top of an 808 heavy ambient soundscape. Towards the end of the song we get a grandiose breakdown, layered with falsetto vocals, that is just incredible. The themes we have come to love and respect The Weeknd for are on full display, bringing the listener into his conscious realization he is a broken man looking to find satisfaction, that inevitably never comes. Although he tries to fill the void with all of his vices, he remains..."Heartless".
"Blinding Lights" is totally different from its release counterpart. The song is almost like 80's electropop. The main melody (other then the vocals) is a classic synth carried by full time drums, giving a manic feeling to the whole piece. The themes in this song are much more ambiguous. What we do know is The Weeknd's masterful ability to tie together a song with an incredible hook is showcased within this track.
Give a good listen to both, and let us know how you feel about the songs, and as always check out the store for new Bierbeach apparel.
