Weeknd

The Weeknd announced a four-date tour with support from Schoolboy Q and Jhene Aiko that begins in NYC this September. The R&B singer's last time headlining NYC was a 2-night stand at Radio City but he's now making the jump up to an arena for a show on September 19 at Barclays Center. Even with strong support like Schoolboy Q, that's a big jump! Tickets for the show are not on sale yet but should be soon via Ticketmaster. All dates are listed, with a stream of The Weeknd's brand new single "Often," below.

Schoolboy Q was just in NYC last night (6/25) to play Central Park Summerstage. He brought out tons of guests, including his Black Hippy partner Ab-Soul, who played material off his new album These Days..., members of A$AP Mob (including Rocky), Flatbush Zombies and Action Bronson. Did you go to the show? How was it?

The Weeknd's list of dates and new song, below...

Seriously, I don't get the hype. I've tried listening to his music, but don't hear anything groundbreaking, or even "good" for that matter. His voice is awful, production ok, but nothing spectacular. Lyrics are awful. Can someone explain?

Sorry but Weeknd & Frank Ocean are probably the two most overrated artist of all time. And on top of their music being mediocre they both have the audacity to have the most nastiest personalities. Im just sayin tho.

He is very talented, I listen to his music all day everyday. I am making the trip to NYC with my girls. I am very excited about it. Lot of haters on here that is my cue to leave.
