During a recent performance at Toronto’s Mod Club Theatre, The Weeknd premiered a new song, seemingly entitled “You Belong To The World” for the crowd. Will this live on Kiss Land? Only time will tell.
Coming off a weekend that was completely owned by Kanye West (debuting “New Slaves” across the world, announcing his Yeezus album title and confirming the June 18 release date, premiering “Black Skinhead” on Saturday Night Live and revealing the album’s artwork), we also saw some great material from many others. A$AP Ferg dropped both the audio and video to his “Work (rmx)” featuring A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, French Montana and Trinidad Jame$; Kendrick Lamar dropped his “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” video; we premiered Cookin’ Soul’s remaking of Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y’s Live In Concert EP; The Weeknd, Mayer Hawthorne and Nipsey Hu$$le return to music; Gucci Mane dissed T.I., Yo Gotti and Young Jeezy; unreleased music from Wu-Tang Clan and Rakim surfaced and more!
Other notable drops came from the likes of B.o.B, 2 Chainz, Crooked I, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, Nacho Picasso, Prodigy, Alchemist, Calez, JMSN, Daft Punk, Pharrell and more. Hit the jump and catch up on last week’s dope’ness!
Since re-releasing his breakout mixtapes (House Of Baloons, Thursday and Echoes Of Silence) as an official retail debut on November 13th, The Weeknd can now hang a gold plaque on his wall as the sales have now surpassed the 500k mark.
