“Blink” Music: The Weeknd ‘Earned It’

This #MusicMonday comes with a warning: there are bottoms and some boobs, wiggling and some jiggling in this video.

So, consider yourself warned, and now you can enjoy ‘Earned it’ by The Weeknd which features on the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ soundtrack. So, I guess this counts as part of the rather minimal Valentine’s coverage we’ll be featuring as the movie premiere’s on Friday, just in time to get you all in a pickle for the 14th.

Enough about that already well promoted movie and back to this artist. The Weeknd is the stage name of Canadian, Abel Tesfaye. He is a recording artist as well as a record producer. He has slowly and subtly built up his following since 2010 when he started uploading tracks to YouTube and releasing mixtapes. That slow progression has enabled Tesfaye to craft a really fresh take on the ‘bump and grind’ variety of R&B. He brings in layers of complexity through his lilting vocals blended with a musicality of production that kind of intertwines through the track, at times overwhelming his voice and then at others uplifting or harmonising with it. It makes for very sexy listening. No wonder he’s been featured on the Fifty Shades soundtrack.

Enjoy! Lucy
