Toronto’s own, The Weeknd, has delivered another hot and humid collection of drug-hazed and mesmerizing tracks that have human beings eager for more from the first track all over the map. The production of The Weeknd’s recent release and third studio album, ‘Starboy’, is fucking flawless, and the artistically creative, enticingly dense, magnetically dark, and utterly captivating mature display of musical craft blithely seduces your mind and aligns your inner self with the sublime. The lustrous combination of head-nodding beats, deep ambience and the erratic application of acid-house sounds with mysterious vocals dripping through my headphones aids in the creation of an abstract world of drifting smoke and wonder. It is an album that heartily take over your entire body and mind throughout the entire time. Metamorphosing listeners interests in open-ended forms of expression and serving as a personal musical mirror of reflection, The Weeknd dives deep into his erratic sexual desires while making it known that his body is on fire. The visuals accompanying the album carry a dark and alluring appeal that shed light on Abel’s entrancing sex appeal. Atmospheric and hypnotizing throughout, here are 10 hot and heavy lyrics that are simultaneously sexually intimate and utterly exquisite.

10. “I ran out of tears when I was 18
So nobody made me but the main streets
‘Cause too many people think they made me
Well if they really made me then replace me
Homeless to Forbes List, these niggas bring no stress
I feel like Moses, I feel like I’m chosen.”
