Listen To Paper Diamond’s Take On The Weeknd’s “Same Old Song”

    No longer will turning on The Weeknd at a party result in the instantaneous smoking of opium, (unless you want that). The sultry drug that is Abel Tesfaye’s music gets a fashionable rework here by American electronic musician Paper Diamond. And although the two versions of “Same Old Song” still have a lot in common, this dubby remix is far more stimulant driven. Tesfaye’s emotive singing is interestingly contrasted against the song’s gripping bass, which should, if anything, make this version more accessible than its predecessor.
