The Weeknd Secret Gig
A mixed bag of people turned out to see the mysterious Toronto crooner in London at a secret gig on Sunday. The Weeknd released his debut album ‘Trilogy’ earlier this month and performed highly anticipated tracks from the album proving that he can send the audience into a frenzy with a single ’ ooh woooahhh.’
The question is, can The Weeknd maintain his underground following with his credibility seeping into the mainstream?

She really has nothing to be apologetic about with this album. There’s a lot more variation on Unapologetic from the old-school uptempo R&B collaboration with Chris Brown ‘Nobody’s Business’ to the drum and base ‘Jump’ in which she samples Genuwine’s ‘Pony’ making this less formulaic than your standard pop album.
Emeli Sande also lent her expertise by penning the track ‘Half Of it.’ Sande spoke of RiRi’s emotional connection to the song when the pair met in LA, “She said, ‘I don’t know what you have been through but you are a poet and this song has really moved me.”
You can really hear the sincerity in the slower tracks; she’s taken a risk with the mix of genres on this album but it actually, surprisingly, pays off because it doesnt feel forced. This is Rihanna’s seventh studio album and she will be touring seven countries in seven days as part of her ‘777’ tour- she wasn’t playing when she said “that Rihanna reign just wont let up.”

Now if the picture above isn’t a clear indication that Beyonce will be doing the half-time performance at the US 2013 Superbowl then we don’t know what is! Perhaps with the drama over Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” (honestly who wears that sort of thing over their nipples?) and M.I.A’s middle finger incident this year the organisers probably wanted to avoid any more controversy and who better than Anti-controversy Queen Beyonce…
