Canada has all of a sudden become rich with pop/rap/hip hop artists. Drake, Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Kiesza, Lights, Shawn Mendes and Grimes have all spent time at the top of the charts. You can add The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) to the growing list. His unique brand of dark R&B music has earned him millions of fans. His sophomore album has cemented his status as the latest “it” musician. A couple of years ago at the beginning of his career The Weeknd seemed like he wanted to float the image that he was too cool for school. Now it seems like he seems okay with going for popularity. The first single off the album is the huge hit “Can’t Feel My Face”. So huge that even Tom Cruise used it as the song he lip synced to on Jimmy Fallon’s show. It confirms that the guy is not an outsider rather he is a legit Top 40 act.
