The Weeknd- Echoes of Silence (Mixtape)

Posted by on December 22, 2011

I don’t know what it is, but the Weeknd makes that driving into a retainer wall at 3 A.M. in the morning type of music. It’s dark, it’s moody, it’s drug inspired. For a man that still hasn’t granted one interview, industry chatter is understandably high. Rumors have been circulating that Diddy offered him 2 million to sign, and he turned it down. Just a few days ago, we heard that the Weeknd signed with an outside investor for 11 million.

Although we certainly admire the Weeknd, it doesn’t seem entirely plausible to us. Don’t get us wrong, the Weeknd is one of our favorite artists right now. However, The Weeknd makes music that you would likely never find on the radio. He’s not interested in making mainstream hits. That’s just not his lane. If he really was signed for 11 million, then I don’t see how the investor could make a return on his profit. What do I know though. I’m sitting here blogging in my underwear eating oreos at 10 AM.
