“Our Love”

    After a whirlwind 2011, when The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) dropped three full mixtapes, and with an already-busy touring schedule in 2012, it’s no wonder Tesfaye and his team haven’t had a chance to release some new material. To keep his hordes of fans at bay, The Weeknd has released an old track, 2009’s “Our Love” produced by T-Minus. It’s radically different from what we’ve come to expect from a Weeknd track: instead of thick, dreamy synth and Tefaye’s wildly versatile range, it’s a radio friendly, glossy pop single. To be fair, this is probably one of Tesfaye’s first studio efforts, but I think we can all be glad The Weeknd ended up following a far more interesting and original musical course.
