Ever since hearing Frank Ocean's latest album, I've been a lot more open to R&B. The Weeknd's newest mixtape House Of Balloons makes me glad that I did. The beats are absolutely exceptional, as live instruments seem to be a common occurrence, yet it is hard to know as barely any information is out about The Weeknd. The only bio that I can find is on Last.fm, as there is nothing on his Facebook page. The mystery just adds to the excitement of the mixtape. And in the words of Rebecca Black, "Everybody's lookin' forward to The Weeknd." You can download the mixtape (album cover NSFW) for free here.
