New music from him (either "Blinding Lights", "Heartless" or both) will be out tomorrow night.

It seems that "Heartless" will be out tomorrow and "Blinding Lights" on Friday. The latter is part of the campaign with Mercedes Benz.

Was wondering when he'd be back. I'm expecting him to dominate the charts then when the album is released. Hoping for either a repeat of very early Trilogy sounds or something like Starboy would be passable too ~

This is awful, just horrendous. I can't believe that I liked him back in the day, and a lot! I guess we all change.

Heard a leak of Blinding Lights out on Friday and it's actually really, really good! Mad 80s synth vibes, and I'm pretty sure that's the one that's getting a push.

So I see that this era will also be completely shit judging by both of the songs. Fun.

'Heartless' is sooooo disappointing. He has done that song 6 times before an better. Also, the lyrics are a bit of a snooze. He really opened himself up on 'My Dear Melancholy' and this seems so degenerate in comparison.

I'm liking both of these way more than I expected tbh (wasn't really that impressed by anything I heard from 'My Dear Melancholy,', 'Lost In The Fire' was complete garbage and 'Power Is Power' was just a much weaker version of 'Pray For Me' so it's been a while since I've really been enthusiastic about The Weeknd) - 'Blinding Lights' is definitely the better of these two, loving the 80s vibes! 'Heartless' is good too if a little similar to a lot of his other singles (that instrumental is great tho) x

They're not as bad as I expected either. Neither are amazing but I do like both to an extent, Blinding Lights a bit more than the other one. They do sound like they could just be lifted from Starboy though.

'Heartless' has gone to #1 in the US in its first full week (his fourth #1 following 'Can't Feel My Face', 'The Hills' and 'Starboy') ohmy.gif The points needed to get to #1 have been very low the last few weeks but even so I didn't realise The Weeknd was doing well enough to get there. 'Blinding Lights' has debuted at only #11 in comparison, surprised there is such a large gap between them.

"Heartless" might be aided because it came out first and got the radio push, "Blinding Lights" just isn't being played which is gonna hold it back.
