"The Transatlantic Connection"

From Bold Street to Bleecker

The Weeknd.

Another musical sensation is brewing in Toronto with the emergence of The Weeknd (that’s not a spelling mistake).

Little is known about who The Weeknd is, but with a recent co-sign from Drake on his Twitter account, the House of Balloons mixtape is blowing up fast.

Many are comparing the mixtape to Drake’s So Far Gone from 2009 with similar production to that of Noah “40” Shebib. Despite the fact that 40 and Drake have had no (known) input into the House of Balloons mixtape, its widely believed that The Weeknd will feature on Drake’s future album.

You can catch a feature on The Weeknd tonight on The REAL Radio Show tonight from 7-9pm on 99.8FM or kcclive.com or on the podcast that will be released in the next 10 days.

In the mean time, check out my favourite track from the House of Balloons mixtape:
