What we're looking for from The Weeknd's upcoming studio album, "Beauty Behind The Madness".
It'll be almost exactly two years since the release of Kiss Land when The Weeknd's second proper studio album, Beauty Behind The Madness, hits stores, and much has changed in the world of Abel Tesfaye. A collaboration with Ariana Grande, and the Michael Jackson-channeling "I Can't Feel My Face" have found the singer approaching traditional pop songwriting with the help of Max Martin, and proved him capable of playing the charismatic frontman role as well as the disconnected R&B outsider he introduced himself as.
Still, his singles have also hinted at a return to form, reuniting the singer with Trilogy-sculpting producer Illangelo on "The Hills". This, paired with rumors that Kanye West will be the sole feature on the new LP make it difficult to predict what we'll be getting with The Weeknd's new material, but one thing's for sure-- we know what we want.
