The Weeknd hinted at a new album drop… and he delivered!
His last album dropped in 2016 which means something new was bound to come along. A new six-song/22-minute EP titled: “My Dear Melancholy,” (and no, that’s not a typo — the official title includes a comma at the end).
Unlike his early work, “Melancholy” is more of a Weeknd take on crying-in-your-beer ballads than existential brooding. And with lyrics like “I don’t want to wake up if you’re not laying next to me”; “I’mma drink the pain away, I’ll be back to my old ways”; “We said our last goodbyes, So let’s just try to end it with a smile,” the internet went crazy wondering if these songs are post-Selena/Bella breakup ballads.
