Album Review: The Weeknd “After hours”

The Weeknd dropped his long-awaited project After Hours on Friday (March 20).

The 14-song collection features gloomy song titles like “Too Late,” “Heartless,” “Scared to Live” and “Until I Bleed Out.” Surprisingly, there are no features on the LP whatsoever.

The album follows his 2018 EP My Dear Melancholy and it’s his fourth full-length studio project since his 2016 effort Starboy .

Late last year the Canadian drops two singles to promote his album. heartless and blinding light of which both songs reached no.1 on the bill board top 100 chart..

In February , he released “after hour” which was produced by prince85. On the track , he delivers his ghostly falsetto over a melancholy beat. The song however was the name of the album.

The 29 years old artist finally released the album March 20th with fourteen amazing tracks. 

Three minutes into the album and it’s clear that this is the most tender and bare we’ve ever seen him. A stunningly cohesive project, After Hours emphasizes The Weeknd’s propensity for letting his voice saunter along smoldering rhythms as opposed to straining it to convey emotion.

However., the  album was able to picture pain,love, drugs , demon and sex all in a single art.From the cover, which shows a bruised Abel smirking in a suit as red as the blood on his face, shows the depth of the album.
Tracks like snow child, hardest love ,escape from LA ,and after hour are out of this word .

Though it’s said not to be doing well as expected due to the pandemic. It’s an amazing album.
