Like “Kiss Land” and “Belong To The World” before it, the Weeknd’s latest offering “Love In The Sky” is much more ebullient and polished than the work on his three mixtapes. It’s also his most romantic-feeling release to-date, despite its lyrics where he explains his aversion to slow sex. The previous two cuts took heavily from source material: the original version of “Kiss Land” utilized an old Main Attrakionz single and “Belong To The World” was, controversially, greatly influenced by Portishead’s “Machine Gun” but this, from what I can hear, is primarily original, although he sounds more like Michael Jackson than ever before. Check out the swooner below.
UPDATE: There’s a video now, too:
Kiss Land is out 9/10.
