[DAIL'ITSPOP] #1 01.09.12 The Weeknd - Montreal

The first artist to feature in this new section of the blog is one of my favorites of the past few months.

#What? Montreal (single)

#Who? The Weeknd, a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye, a canadian singer and producer who made 2011 a pretty good year by releasing and giving for free three 'mixtapes' of very high quality. All this is extremely promising and he should be quite big in 2012. 

#Fact/ Montreal is taken from the third mixtape Echoes of Silence and samples the french singer Serge Gainsbourg-written track Laisse Tomber Les Filles (sung by France Gall in 1964, and covered in a french/english version by April March in 1995). Basically amazing.
