Well, it’s here. The Weeknd and Gesaffelstein‘s long-teased and highly anticipated collab from the supposed forthcoming Gesaffelstein album has arrived.
While I can’t say I’m disappointed in it, I’m not overly impressed either. Simply put, it feels like “Starboy” 2.0 – The Weeknd’s massive collab with Daft Punk, which just hit the 1 billion stream mark on Spotify. The drum pattern is extremely similar in the production from this previous Weeknd collab, and causes “Lost In The Fire” to lose some of its shine for me.
That being said, it’s still an instant hit that will be in my rotation for sometime. The Weeknd’s signature style certainly shines through and doesn’t disappoint.
Listen below to both and let me know if you agree or disagree – who knows, maybe I’m crazy.
And keep your eyes peeled, I wouldn’t be surprised to see The Weeknd come out at Coachella for Gesaffelstein’s highly anticipated return.
