Mare's Music Monday: The Weeknd

It's been a hot minute since I did an album review, so let's get to it!  I actually haven't bought an actual physical CD in a really long time so it seems fitting to tell you about it. 
The Weeknd is Canadian and killing it around the world!  His second album, Beauty Behind the Madness, was released two weeks ago and has spent both at number one on the Billboard charts.
The Weeknd has a unique sound, many compare to Michael Jackson.  He doesn't rap, but his lyrics remind me of that style, quick-witted, smart and raw.  The songs definitely have adult content with drug use and sex being constant themes.  Somehow with his rough subject matter, many of the songs still have a pop-love-song vibe to them.  I love how the songs paint a vivid picture and I find myself transported into them.  I find this especially happens when listening to the album in headphones. 
Some of my favourites are Can't Feel My Face, Dark Times (featuring Ed Sheeran), Real Life and Shameless.  
Of course this won't be to everyone's taste, but two weeks at number one can't lie.  I am thoroughly enjoying this one!
