The Weeknd - "The Hills"
Not content with merely dubbing himself king of the fall, The Weeknd took measures to run the summer with a pair of excellent songs that hit the web within ten days of each other.
We'll get to "Can't Feel My Face" soon (hint, hint) but its evil brother “The Hills” feels like a gift to longtime fans; faded, dazed, and distorted, Tesfaye makes his intentions about staying under the influence clear. Massive, throbbing production from Mano and Illangelo take you right into the haze with him. It's a gloomy, distorted song that proves The Weeknd can still mood out with the best of them.—Alex Siber
