The Weeknd Covers Complex, Belong to the World (video)


Torontonian minstrel, Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd graces the cover of Complex in an image as eerily beautiful as his music, for the August/September issue. He speaks in depth about working with fellow Canadian Drake, his appreciation for RnB legend R. Kelly and trip-hop founders Portishead (as if those influences weren't obvious), and that his air of mystery was a fluke of being camera shy. He also describes his debut album Kiss Land, set to release August 27th "represents the thrill—and the horror—of tasting and savoring stardom."
