L’ART’s Weekend Anthem With The Weeknd & Drake

L’ART’s Weekend Anthem With The Weeknd & Drake

September 13, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

With the release of his debut album Kiss Land this week, it seems that The Weeknd is more than just an artist. He is very much the inspiring story-teller as he has used his number of life experiences to create the incredible project that is Kiss Land.

“When you’re travelling constantly, every day you become inspired, and it shows in my work, sonically, lyrically, visually,” said The Weeknd. “Conversations with women with different accents and stories told in those accents, I like to create characters based on different people I’ve met and relationships. I like to tell stories loosely based on real-life events.

“The album is about what young men think but will never say out loud. I’ve learnt to pretty much not give a sh–, and it kind of morphed this sound and it works. There’s nothing else I’d rather do than this,” and you lucky fans are the ones to hear it again and again.

Now here’s a new track from The Weeknd that features Drake. ‘Live For’ will be the next single from the Canadian artist and as Drake is also from Canada, this has especially been one song that everybody has been looking forward to hearing.
