While the singer born Abel Tesfaye has previously adorned his projects with oblique facial expressions, if he shows his face at all, here it’s clear he’s in the middle of something dangerous, and he’s loving it. It’s a sound The Weeknd has incorporated throughout his career, and it continues to be a fitting sonic shorthand for the excesses of his lyrics. However, a cliché chorus (“I hope she don’t think that I think she some kinda ho/I don’t care, that just lets me know that she knows what she wants)” coupled with Future likening himself to Jesus Christ makes the song feel too cheesy to stick. Hov’s flows are more stunning and polished, while Jay Elec’s delivery sounds a bit rusty – but lyrically, they’re similar quality with different goals. Despite being incarcerated, he says he's got back-to-back projects on the way. I was astonished that a song this sublime wasn’t released as a single, only for its video to drop this Monday. She has always made transparency her strong suit, but Chilombo expounds on her candidness and shows that post-breakup, she is more comfortable with herself than ever before. ANOTHER BONUS FACT: Lil Uzi Vert’s Eternal Atake was the number 1 trend on March 6th. After an incredible performance at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival in 2014, he admitted that drugs and alcohol were to blame. Swedish pop craftsman Max Martin and Brooklyn electronica architect Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never are both credited, but the final product falls much closer to the former; a listener can practically see the disco ball spinning over a gaggle of youths at their prom’s last dance as Tesfaye urges “don’t be scared to live again.” The song Interpolates the iconic chorus of Elton John’s “Your Song” as a cherry on top, a pop star hedonist paying homage to a predecessor. Chilombo, her third album, is a culmination of all the lessons learned; where clarity reigns supreme and she has no problems owning up to her mistakes. A post shared by The Weeknd (@theweeknd) on Mar 17, 2020 at 7:03pm PDT, Tesfaye’s own chemical intake is equally irrelevant to his actual music. We take it back. A week ago, without much prior warning, Uzi released a trailer for Eternal Atake. But who cares about drawing fact from fiction when his music still oozes The Weeknd’s narcotic charm? © Copyright 2020 Rolling Stone, LLC, a subsidiary of Penske Business Media, LLC. “Have you ever heard the tale of / The noblest of gentlemen who rose up from squalor? But in the ensuing decade, The Weeknd moved closer to the pop mainstream via 50 Shades of Grey tie-ins, Daft Punk collabs, and unabashed MJ imitations. Lil Uzi Vert has a height of 5’3” (1.60 m). The details of the plot aren’t important; it’s likely the same story every night. Jay-Z is the co-star of A Written Testimony, appearing on all but one song with a type of inspiration unseen throughout his career. For a brief moment it felt like Lil Uzi Vert had lost a step. After Hours takes place over one night in Las Vegas, as Tesfaye’s narrator indulges in sex and drugs until the sun rises and he’s sick of both. This section is more melodic and features more singing, making it a likely draw for the rapper’s pop-leaning fans. Even in the midst of his own mental health issues, few artists can spark immense joy the way he has by simply being himself and making space for others to do the same. Now, Jay Electronica has finally delivered, even if he didn't create exactly what his fans may have wanted. Three years removed from LUV IS RAGE 2 and stuck in label limbo, the Philadelphia native not only broke through on his own, he flourished. “In Your Eyes” is an electro-disco song packed with enough aural embellishments that to list them requires a full Stefon voice: Chic-esque rhythm guitar, victorious trumpet riffs, Daft Punk-esque robotic vocals, and a full-on saxophone solo on the outro. Futsal Shuffle 2020 Out Now. “His ears are kinda pointy, he's got a square head. He wasn’t friends with superstars, he didn’t have the attention of the world, and he was most likely eating Poptarts at the crib, just rapping for fun with his friends in Philadelphia. Reality is not my move.” In a period of increased anxiety and uncertainty when everyone seems to be holding their breath for the next tragedy, Eternal Atake offers a temporary reprieve. On songs like “Ghost Of Soulja Slim,” he spits as hard as he’s ever rapped, with references to cops dropping street kids off in rival neighborhoods and the survival of his ancestors. In fairness, his collaborative efforts over the past year were a wide swath of melodies, adlibs and charisma his peers couldn’t contain, let alone compete with (I’m looking at you, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Playboi Carti). Eternal Atake shifts sonically and tonally after the first six songs, making way for Uzi’s second persona, Renji, the emo counterpart to Baby Pluto. It’s easy to imagine the cult of women in Uzi’s short film singing the “oohs” in the background of the braggadocious “Bust Me” just before the abducted rapper escapes back home in the song’s interlude. You're far too kind you, and you, and you. Aiko’s first full-length album, Souled Out, came exactly one year later and dove deeper into existentialist thought. But on “B.S.,” featuring a cameo from H.E.R., she is way more cool and callous with her boasts because the same ex who scorned Aiko is practically non-existent: “I am on my own now/I am in control now/I need you to go now/I can fix my own crown.”. Make sure you typed in your email correctly. (2018’s My Dear Melancholy comes closest.) Jay Electronica was a mythical figure in hip-hop before many of us even heard his voice for the first time. It took two years, but Eternal Atake, easily Uzi’s best release so far, was well worth the wait. The late Brooklyn rapper's hit single could've sounded a whole lot different. Get first dibs on Merch from Lil Uzi and stay in the know on the latest updates and discounts! The most quintessential Weeknd lyrics can feel sophomoric or profound, depending on your mood and mental state, and “Faith” is full of them. / Tall, dark, and decked out in customary regalia / Smellin' like paraphernalia / Hailin' from the home of Mahalia,” he begins. “Venetia,” the second song in the third and final portion of the album, starts off with the lines “Lil Uzi Vert, to be exact. He’s making the culture come to him, not the other way around – and his art will last longer than he made us wait for it. Not a rockstar, not one of the hottest rappers in the game, but just Symere Woods, the kid in Francisville who liked listening to Marylin Manson and Wiz Khalifa.
