The Weeknd's second album, Beauty Behind the Madness, is finally (and officially) here. An early leak sparked an extended album preview last week, and reviews for the record are already out. The takeaway? It's good and poppy but neither sappy or a sell-out moment, an impressively pulled-off balancing act considering the Canadian singer's history.
Officially out on XO/Universal tonight, Beauty Behind the Madness features Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey and is held up by production from the likes of Kanye West, Mike Dean, Max Martin, and more. Head over to iTunes to buy the record now.
