New Music: The Weeknd – “After Hours”
The Weekend dropped “After Hours,” the third lead single and title track of his upcoming album, which drops on March 20.
Sonically speaking, “After Hours” is standard Weeknd. Unfortunately, standard Weeknd isn’t always good.
Sub-par vocals are tolerable if they’re supported by a strong melody or solid production, neither of which we get on “After Hours.” And to make matters worse, the song is six minutes long.
The good news (for the Weeknd) is that he is now a commercial powerhouse who no longer needs to release quality music. Expect this song to debut in the top 5 next week.
