Hey! The correct spelling of ‘nights’!
The Weeknd’s first mixtape- 2011’s ‘House of Balloons’- was an absolutely marvellous piece of work and was the Necessary Evil album of 2011, even though I never actually wrote it down or told anyone about it, because when all’s said and done it’s really none of your fucking business is it?
What I loved- and still love- about the record is how it details the standard hip-hop/r’n’b tropes of constant partying, piles of drugs and endless meaningless shagging, but turned it around and exposed its core by detailing how empty, depressing and hollow such a life of shallow and egocentric consumption can be
On his second album, Jeremiiiiiiih
considers The Weeknd’s proposal, but instead offers the rebut that constantly going to clubs and boofing loads of girls while off your face on various uppers and downers is fucking awesome
And over the course of ten absolutely fantastic tales of lewd behaviour softened by expertly constructed and produced R&B/pop gems, I’m kind of more inclined to agree with him
As you know, intimacy can often breed contempt. I mean, look at your husband, there’s not a second goes by in which you don’t dream of gutting his fat neck and laughing over his convulsing body as the ugly cunt slowly and painfully bleeds to death, is there? Did you ever love him? Were you always this disgusted by his very presence? I can empathise: Jerimeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh’s album came out in December 2015, but qualified for (cough) this year’s list, so I’ve lived with the bugger for about 443 months now, and thought I was sick of it. I hadn’t listened to it in maybe six months when I revisited it for this list, and allowing the break in the relationship has really made me realise how much I love the thing, and it probably deserves a much higher place
Giv No Fuks. Looooooooooooooooooooool!!!!!!1!! He don’t spell any word rite!!
‘Two girls kissing at the same time’. Well… yeah, how would two girls kiss separately? Idiot!!
‘Late Nights’ is generally an album that Zayn Shagik should be studying closely, as it is the absolute finest example of what can be achieved with pop/r’n’b shag-bragging
Is there shagging going on? Take
