The Weeknd

DA MAN - - Music -

When “Star­boy” came out tout­ing a to­tal of 18 tracks, the al­bum felt a lit­tle too stretched out. That is not to say that Abel Makko­nen Tesfaye, the Cana­dian singer’s real name, packed less tal­ent than be­fore, but the tracks where Daft Punk or Lana Del Rey also jammed in proved to be some­what catchier than his so­los. Per­haps given The Weeknd’s var­i­ous com­mer­cial en­deav­ors of late, “Star­boy” was dragged down a bit too close to earth.
