The Weeknd admitted that he “got angry” the first time he heard Usher’s “Climax” in 2012 because he thought it sounded like “a Weeknd song.”
” House of balloons I literally changed the sound of pop music before my eyes, “he told Variety in his cover article for the latest issue of the publication. However, despite the fact that his sound had an impact on the music scene, he did not always appreciate that other artists seemed to imitate him.
“I heard” Climax “, that Usher song, and I thought,” Holy f * ck, it’s a Weeknd song, “” he recalls. Although “it was very flattering” that, according to The Weeknd, apparently inspired by his own sound, he “also got angry”. However, he acknowledged that it also meant “I was doing something good” and “the older I got, the more I realized it was good.” Do you think “Climax” sounds like a Weeknd song?
