Good Tunes Tuesday: The Weeknd – Tell Your Friends
Of course, we expected nothing short of sweet, sweet lyrical melodic greatness from Abel's new album Beauty Behind the Madness. Honestly, we can't pick a favorite track from the bunch of them.
One of the standout tracks from The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind The Madness is the Kanye West-produced “Tell Your Friends.” The song shows Abel move away from the brooding synths and dark, down-tempo drum production of his signature sound, towards a classic soul sample flip that has West’s fingerprints all over it.
Beauty Behind the Madness is the second studio album by Canadian singer The Weeknd. It was released on August 28, 2015, by XO, and Republic Records. The album features guest appearances from Labrinth, Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey, while the production on the album was handled by Illangelo, Mike Dean, Danny Boy Styles, and Max Martin, among others.
The album was supported by five singles: "Often", "The Hills", "Can't Feel My Face", "In the Night" and "Acquainted". "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face" both reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100. Beauty Behind the Madness also includes the Academy Award-nominated song "Earned It", which was released in December 2014 as the lead single from the soundtrack to Fifty Shades of Grey.
