12 Questions We’d Ask The Weeknd (If He Did UK Interviews)

Presenting: Esquire's Proposed Line Of Enquiry With Progressive R&B Talent Abel Tesfaye, Ahead Of His New Record, Kiss Land (because he doesn't do UK interviews for whatever reason).

1 | Hey, Abel. How’s 
you today my 23-year-old Canadian friend?


2 | So you’re about to release Kiss Land, which you describe as a concept album of sorts. how so?


3 | Not to get all In Treatment on you, but it sounds like you’d had some lady trouble. What’s up, bro?

4 | It’s much more epic than Trilogy, the compilation 
of re-mastered mix tapes 
you rocked out in 2012. 
Is that the sound of a major label wallet opening?


5 | You’re the new wave of R&B, shedding the swagger of old for existential slow jams, comedowns and a softer kind of sexual explicitness. Discuss.


6 | Drake is credited with introducing you to a wider audience after he tweeted about your work. Does he
 get a cut?

7 | The Michael Jackson comparisons: great, but baggage doesn’t quite 
cover it.


8 | Sorry, that wasn’t really a question. Would you rather your incredible falsetto was compared to diminutive soul-pop perv Prince?


9 | Are you getting one 
of those Parental Guidance stickers for Kiss Land? We’re certain you sing,
 “I’m sure to make you
 cum two or three times”.
 And there’s something 
about pussy in there, too.

10 | What? There is.


11 | Do they even use 
those Parental Guidance stickers anymore?


12 | Re: this no interviews policy; why not throw a man a line? It sure gets lonely around these parts.

Kiss Land is out now (Xo). Listen to the Weeknd's track with Drake below.
