NEW MUSIC from The Weeknd

Like we guessed, The Weeknd went ahead and dropped new music on us last night. His new 6-track album, “My Dear Melancholy,” is taking me back to some of his earlier (aka sad-ass) work. Keep in mind this is the first solo work he’s done post break-up from Selena Gomez, and I think it’s pretty clear he’s calling her out in the song “Call Out My Name“:

We found each other/I helped you out of a broken place/You gave me comfort/But falling for you was my mistake.”

Other lyrics have us questioning whether he considered giving Selena a kidney when she needed a transplant last year:

I said I didn’t feel nothing baby, but I lied/I almost cut a piece of myself for your life/Guess I was just another pit stop/Til’ you made up your mind/You just wasted my time/You’re on top

Give it a listen!
