The Weeknd Celebrating Trilogy Official Album Release at LIV Miami on November 18
It dropped Tuesday, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate The Weeknd's first major-label release this Sunday night at LIV.
It's that good ... The type of record that's so damn legit, it continues to have "official album release" parties five days after the official album release.
But don't get too excited; The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) isn't scheduled to perform Sunday night. He played Miami last month.
This time, Tesfaye's just headed to the Beach to ball. After all, he's earned it.
In about the same time that it took Mitt Romney to campaign for (and ultimately lose) the 2012 presidency, The Weeknd released three mixtapes and Trilogy, his three-hour opus. He's also performed at some of the biggest music festivals on the planet, and become one of Drake's favorite artists.
"The Weeknd is so amazing," Drake said in an interview with Billboard. "He's like one of the greatest artists that I've ever heard. Not only did he inspire me to sing better on stage, he inspired me writing-wise and music, just to better my product."
So while Sundays may be unofficially regarded as Lil Wayne's night, this Sunday at LIV belongs to a 22-year-old Canadian with dope melodies and synthesized grooves.
The Weeknd's Trilogy Official Album Release Party. Sunday, November 18. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. Call 305-674-4680 or visit livnightclub.com.
