Singer The Weeknd has released a brand new song titled “King of the Fall.” The track is his second new debut of the year, following “Often,” which was released about a month ago.
“King of the Fall” maintains The Weeknd’s usual sultry and compelling R&B sound and although upon closer inspection of the lyrics, it becomes clear Abel Testfaye really is quite the naughty lyricist, it works, and it always does. He sings about the same things other rappers do- women, drugs and life in the fast lane, yet he gets away with it due to his impressive and forever unique singing voice.
The song release follows The Weeknd’s recently announced tour, ironically named the same as the track , that will feature ScHoolboy Q and Jhene Aiko. The tour is set to kick off this fall in Brooklyn, NY and will also hit Hollywood, CA, San Fransisco, CA, Las Vegas, NV and (obviously) Toronto, Canada.
