What you need to do is take a listen to this single. Toronto’s Abel Tesfaye, known by his moniker The Weeknd, is a Canadian R&B artist, rapper, and producer whose 2009 debut album House of Balloons established him as one of Canada’s most promising young musicians. Sometimes I like to imagine that Abel is speaking directly to me in “What You Need” simply because he’s just so goddamn sexy (and only 22 for that matter too). What I love so much about his music is his ability to re-invent R&B through a more bare-boned and electronic approach. He’s definitely what I need.
