Contemporary R&B artist The Weeknd has released his fourth album called “My Dear Melancholy.” Making an incredible debut, The Weeknd’s EP earned roughly 26 million streams in the first day of its release. The EP contains six breakup songs. These songs are very intimate and give close details of what he went through, but they do not directly state who put him in this position. It is rumored, from the hints given in the EP, that the album is written about his jarring breakup with Selena Gomez. The relationship ended abruptly and was his latest one.

The cover to the album makes it seem dark and mysterious; it has a way of pulling you in. The first song on the EP is named “Call Out My Name,” a ballad that talks about how he and his significant other (at the time) found each other and made sure to be there for each other, but then he turns it around, saying that it was a mistake and that the relationship was just a pit stop for the other partner. The song sets the mood for the rest of the album which is full of breakup songs.

The next five songs on The Weeknd’s album represent the need of having a certain person back in your life. It’s a melodramatic EP with a smooth sound. The EP has a song called “Hurt You” where he talks about how he now blames himself for  her leaving. He later says that he does not want her to come back because he doesn’t want to hurt her again.

The Weeknd already has two number one albums and one that’s at number two. Seeing that this album already has over 26 million streams, I would not be surprised if this one tops the charts  as well. The album is available to listen to on iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify.
