NEW MUSIC: The Weeknd – Wicked Games

by Yvette Travillian

Last month the Couch-light was shined on a mysterious / up-and-coming outfit from Toronto going by the name The Weeknd (no e). Their unique style of lo-fi R&B is hella fresh and has been buzzing like crazy over the past few months, giving the receding genre a much needed underground boost.

A new track has recently surfaced called “Wicked Games” and just like its predecessors the song comes off provocatively uncoerced  in lyrical content and extremely intoxicating in melody. I may officially be hooked on The Weeknd. Check it out.
