Producer: Kanye West, Che Pope, and Carlos Garcia

Nearly 40 years after it was initially recorded, and 18 years after it was first sampled by No I.D., The Weeknd’s “Tell Your Friends” has given Soul Dog’s “Can’t Stop Loving You” a mainstream look in 2015. Kanye West plunged into his back catalogue, and re-flipped one of the first sample sources he ever blessed with the Midas touch. So, when “Tell Your Friends” comes on at the club, and that feeling of musical déjà vu starts to creep in, you’ll know that it’s because years ago, Soul Dog caught the ears of Kanye West, Madlib, Just Blaze, and No I.D.—and that’s why The Weeknd’s new single is catching your ear in 2015.
