Is OK. The problem is he's just not very exciting. He's nice. He's bland. And he's the best out there atm.

His new music is not as great as his previous material and it’s like he’s a parody of himself. Seen him in concert twice and enjoyed, but gave up my after hours ticket

It’s ok. As he is. For me, with most top artists these days, the music just isn’t there. It’s all C+, churned out material. I really try to enjoy it, but it’s difficult.

Compared to most new music on the radio The Weeknd tunes are alright, as they hark back to the 80's which is the era of my youth. But I would not buy an album or single or visit one of his concerts. The music just isn't good/original enough and as a person he rubs me the wrong way. He comes across as arrogant to me.

RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

This. What bothers me is his lack of earnestness and genuineness when he sings or writes his music, it doesn’t sound like it comes straight from his heart.

I feel his latest album is like that, but his past ones had substance imo
