  5. Is Abel campaigning for ha place in BPG 2020?
     
  6. He’s basically one of the only ones running a campaign at the moment, next to Dua, so it shouldn’t be too hard nn

  8. Loving "In Your Eyes" but can't help thinking they've shot their bolt too early with it, with the video being out already and everything, because chart-wise it's being overshadowed by "Blinding Lights". I suppose it's not a big deal if it's a sleeper hit but it deserves to be a number 1. It's odd that in the UK it's A-listed on R1 and R2 but it's continuing to slip down the chart.

    And why does he have to be so weird in his videos.. the dancing with the head bit is really off-putting.

  9. The videos are are part of one storyline - If you watch them in order with the After Hours short it sort of makes sense as to why the character he’s playing is like that - mainly due to drugs and the effect of that.

    I read somewhere, can’t remember where now that In Your Eyes when the character dies and you watch Until I Bleed Out that he’s in some sort of purgatory - with other characters from the previous videos

  10. Oh I know it's clever and it's art etc.. but I'm not digging the drugged-up killer theme.
     
  11. I mean, it’s essentially a dramatic retelling of his actual life, so. And drugs are a major topic in all his music.

  13. I missed the bit about his head being chopped off by a girl he was stalking!

  15. I know..
     
  16. His visuals are pretty perfect this era, though. Teen me would’ve lived for the edginess.

  17. Complaining about gratuity from The Weeknd is a bit of a head scratcher.

  18. Expecting the Weeknd not to sing about drugs, sex, and hating yourself is like going into a Lana album not anticipating a reference to Topanga etc.
     
  19. Hardest To Love finally clicked with me!
