The Weeknd

All those know me even a tiny bit know how crazy I am for two things in life- Music, and Driving. I wouldn't call my choice of songs and music very conventional. Well, my choices are not conventional in any field - for that matter ;) I blame my zodiac sign :P

I am pretty sure that everyone knows of 'The Weeknd' by now. His songs have been the TOP 10 list of almost every billboard that you can imagine. And then, this man is sexy. And, girls never miss on sexiness, do they?

For all the blue - eyed guys who don't know about him, here's a little bit of interesting information about this man:

Real Name: Abel Makkonen Tesfaye (born 16 February 1990) (only 2 years older! *Marriageable *_* )

Love life: Apparently dating Selena Gomez, he does not have a long history of girl friends in his past. He and his ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid, a Victoia Secret Model, made a couple entry to 2016 Grammy Awards and split in November 2016.

Personal Life:

His rough childhood, where he not only pickpocketed from super stores, and hit his classmates and ran away from his house on a Weekend and his deep association with drugs and Marijuana are well known and out for public knowledge. He pleaded no contest and was sentenced to 50 hours of community service for hitting a Las Vegas Cop. (Las Vegas is on my bucket list, so is one more thing in the previous line - open for your interpretation ;) 

God damn bitch, I am not a teen choice.  (You surely aren't)

His old iconic haircut, like a palm tree on a handsome face like his, was by far his most recognisable trait and was meant to be so. He began growing it out around 2011: "I want to be remembered as iconic and different," he said. "So I was like, 'Fuck it — I'm gonna let my hair just be what it wants.' I'll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now. But if I cut it, I'd look like everyone else. And that's just so boring to me.

Thankfully, after his break up he cut that bush and came out with another crude yet amazing track called - 'Starboy'. If you haven't heard the song yet - I'd suggest that you do. The song is crazy but the lyrics are crazier. It took me several attempts, research (Hey, lyrics are important to me!) and google searches to decipher what those words meant. Here's a link to the meaning of his song- 'Meaning of the song- StarBoy' 


His plaintive and emotional lyrics often express feelings of hurt and deal with matters such as sex, drugs, and partying. A lot of people find his lyrics offensive and too raw. 

Well, aren't we all species of rawness skillfully hiding behind sophistication and veils of modesty and pretense? 

One of his dark, old songs includes - Wicked Games, 2012. It would be an understatement to say that his music has just improved, listen to this track - full of dark emotions and crazy shit attitude. Bet that you'll fall in love with his voice and utter rawness.

I, personally love his songs especially- 'The Hills, Wicked Games and Starboy, Party Monster and a song that has been on loop in my car and phone lately- 

"Currently obsessing over: 


When he says. "you too busy finding that blue eyed soul" - Only after I checked the lyrics I realised he says blue-eyed soul and not a swear word ( Before you judge, listen to the song and guess what swear word could it be! )  

"If it ain't XO, then it gotta go"

(his expressions are to die for! And, for all little good kids reading this- XO doesn't mean the lovely hugs and kisses but is a reference to his recreational use of ecstasy and oxytocin)

And then there comes one of the best:

"Every time you try to forget who I am, I'll be right there to remind you again" 
Haha! Aren't his expressions killer? And boy, that Red Lamb .. Hopefully, I'll drive it someday

"Goddamn bitch, I am not a teen choice. God damn bitch, I am not a bleach boy"-  No guy should be a bleach boy :/ 

Loved his move when he says, "Hit the gas so hard make it rotate" 

This track is not something that any music lover should miss on!

I ain't gotta tell you, coz you know - him! 

I might end up writing the whole song if I don't stop here. 

Enjoy the track:
