Following up with the tracklist reveal comes The Weeknd with his Drake-assisted single “Live For” and goddammit I think I might be a Weeknd fan now.

I have two working ears so how can I not be a fan of soft, heart aching vocals singing “I’m in my city in the summer camo’d out leather boot’d kissin’ bitches in the club” and “me and my niggas we ain’t never goin’ broke”? Who can resist those 90’s R&B parody lyrics? Not me! I’m hooked! XO till I overdose!

And since we’re already in full Weeknd mode (on a Monday, no less), here’s a remix crafted for labelmate Lorde and her sizzling song “Royals.” Not a heavy tweakage of the original but still as smooth as butter.
