Published sources share that The Weeknd will return to his brooding mood records in 2019.
No more pop or slightly happy ‘elevator music’ for the latest release by The Weeknd. He claims his release Starboy gave off a musical impression that was not “him”. No actual public statement has been confirmed, but The Weeknd has posted on Twitter to address his loyal fans. Promotional campaigns for the latest record Chapter VI, as well as music video premier on Youtube an Vevo.
But, it looks as though his new music is being met with some critical eyes as his lyrics are very homophobic. Specifically, his latest single “Lost in the Fire,” manages to fetishize and invalidate lesbian sex in one verse! So, is this the “real” Weeknd?

I used to have a girl a day (Girl a day)

You said you might be into girls (Into girls)
