TORONTO- Canadians by nature are perceived to be well-mannered and endearing people, however, recently some of the country’s biggest stars have been publicly feuding. Those Ontario natives being R&B sensation, The Weeknd, and the polarizing pop icon Justin Bieber.
Founder of Toronto-based XO record group, Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye has just been featured on his new label signee Nav’s hit single “Some Way” from his self-entitled mix-tape, NAV, which releases a week from today.
Nav just signed a multi-project deal with The Weeknd’s label as the Canadian duo collaborate on this scintillating new track where some shade was thrown at a certain someone.
The song showcases euphonic production, making it a potential club banger. Self-produced by Nav, The Weeknd uses the platform to let the whole music world know he has arrived as a formidable pop artist that deserves recognition amongst his peers.
“Everyone said, yeah, they said I was gonna peak. Most number ones, number ones in a ni##a league.”
Numbers don’t lie as Abel is stating that his 3 successful #1 Billboard songs: “Starboy,” “The Hills,” and “Can’t Feel My Face” back up his claim that he is killing the pop game.
The Weeknd then proceeds to throw subliminal shade to Justin Bieber as it is a form of retaliation to JBiebs comments that he made on Instagram Live calling the Toronto singer’s music “wack.”
” I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me. She say my f##k and my tongue game a remedy.”
These two boastful bars by The Weeknd are shots fired adding fuel to the feud with Bieber as his rumored romance with Justin’s ex girlfriend Selena Gomez is confirmed. Abel exclaims superior skills in the bedroom was how he was able to court the female pop star.
The harmonic hook appears to reiterate the notion that Bieber should feel salty that The Weeknd took his girl after they had been publicly together for six dramatic years.
” I just hit a lick and I know you feelin’ some way. I just took that chick, and I know you feel some way.”
The urban phrase “hit a lick” is usually referred to armed robbery, but in this savage instance; it is emphasizing how Abel snatched J-Beeb’s former love.
Nav proceeds to goes in on his own song revealing his unique melodic flow that has given him recent buzz in the hip hop community.
” The brown boy and the Starboy on the track. Haters gonna say this sh#t is wack.”
Nav refers to himself as the “brown boy” because of his Indian descent and has even released a song entitled it.
He then decides to tag along with Abel in publicly denouncing Bieber citing the social media slander that started the whole quarrel involving his XO boss. Nav calls Bieber out for being openly jealous against The Weeknd’s musical content and believes he would hate and say this track is whack.
However, the emerging single is far from it, arising as one of the hottest collaborations in recent Hip Hop memory. 2017 is looking to be the year of The Weeknd with his immense success in and out of the recording booth.
