    The Weeknd is known to be a mysterious character, shying away from the usual spotlight requirements of interviews, vlogs, or anything that really shows us who The Weeknd is-- unless it's his music. With his debut album on a major label, Kiss Land, now slated for release on August 27th, it's a good time for fans to learn a little bit more about the r'n'b singer.

    As the past few months have been slow all-around when it comes to music, we are not seeing many, if any, new hip-hop entries on the charts. However this shortage of music is coming to a close; the past week or two have seen many big songs drop, and a mixtape or three. We'll definitely begin to see some new names on Charts Don't Lie as early as next week, with Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience dropping on March 19th. Nonetheless, album-wise, we aren't seeing anything new this week. Instead, we have T.I.

    The spike in album sales we saw accompany the Grammys and Valentine's Day has now subsided, with overall album sales having decreased by 20% over the week. Nonetheless our charts are staying pretty consistent: two female stars continue gripping onto the top spots of Charts Don't Lie, while their male counterparts take spots beneath them. While many artists decreased in album sales this week, the independent phenom that is Macklemore was one of the few to increase sale-wise. What is to blame for Macklemore's increase in LP sales this week?

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days. Generally, specific lyrics tend to get overlooked (with the exception of Lil' Wayne's recent Emmett Till controversy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
