Please do not update if you're going to keep on being a bias dick on KL. Only Taking into consideration the opinions of the KTT members you fuck with.
"Oh mixed reviews but lostly negative". "Mostly" bitch did you count them?? Or did you just read the negative ones(e.i the members you fuck with)?

I agree that he shouldn't go on to bash kiss land but in the case of BTTW, most of the reviews were negative upon release so that's accurate

posted this in the OG weeknd thread (goat thread, miss it so much). updated it:

Recollection of Weeknd Moments we've shared together

- drake blogs OG the morning, what you need and loft music (without the outro). this is the first time the majority of the OG fans discover the weeknd and fall in love (http://octobersveryown.blogspot.co.uk/2010/12/introducing-weekend.html). OP vividly remember getting ill and putting the 3 tracks on repeat for the next 6 hours.

- unsure if this new music is a band or a solo act. everyone assumes 40 is the producer. goat artwork is made using words such as "Weekend" and "40" and "octobersveryown"


- wicked games drop. we fall even more in love with the weeknd. drake later tweets lyrics to the weeknd game to confirm he fucks with abel.

- one quick sunday night the weeknd tweets a picture warning the blogosphere and underground music world a full mixtape will drop within the next two hours. KTT anticipates greatness.


- HOB drops. Unanimous reaction = :psyboom: A underground legend is more and a momentous, game- and life- changing mixtape is introduced to the world.


- people continue to adorn HOB and ponder what is next.

- still unsure about who this dude is and what he is about, he tweets his plans for the rest of the year: 2 more mixtapes, thursday in the summer, echoes of silence in the fall. thirst era is initiated.

- the birds part 1, rolling stone and trust issues remix all drop over the next month. we going crazy over each one. is this nigga capable of making a bad song?!?

- THE GOAT THIRST ERA IS IN FULL EFFECT - every thursday we wait, thinking this will be that thursday. the xo crew fuel our thirst every thursday with subliminal tweets, only to be left sadden after another thursday passes and still no mixtape. some start to wonder if we will ever get thursday.

- first live performance at the mod club in toronto. the hype is crazy - people wonder what will happen, especially after tweets from the fucktheweeknd. videos surface, for the first time really we get a good look at what this nigga looks like. performance is shaky but still good (piano coming down :allears:. KTT Mod Club tape is made and recogised by other music sites.

- still thirsty for thursday.......

- performs at OVO fest (2nd live show) in front of a bigger crowd. joins drake on stage for the first time. the two confess their love for each other (musically not in a ghey way).

- still no thursday, and summer is coming to a close quickly. is thursday actually coming. ever?

- weeknd tweets thursdays promo pic. we going crazy.


- people start trolling hard, fake tracklists, rumours of features etc. pineapple gets ether. no one knows what happened to him and if he is still alive.

- 24 hours after the pic. THURSDAY FINALLY DROPS. We all love it and go crazy over the surprise drake feature at the end of the zone.


- Thursday continues to grow on people. some people begin to realise the story the mixtape paints.

- more live shows. his stage presence and live performances get better and better.

- the thirst for echoes of silence begins. the weeknd leaves toronto for the first time in his life and gets on a plane for the first time. goes to costa rica. we will never know what really happened there. this is the only thing we know:

- the knowing video drops. KTT reaction = :psyboom: jar jar binks adds to his filmography with a cameo appearance.

- initiation drops. everyone likes it and likes how its different. no one knows what to expect for EOS. will it be full of voice distortions???

- his first mainstream break really comes into fruition as Crew love is premiered by drake the same night take care leaks - during the premier drake phones the weeknd for his first radio "interview". everyone is suddenly loving the crew.

- more take care songs featuring abel leak. everyone loves em - the ride, good ones go.

- the winter stays cold and EOS seems nowhere near close to coming. people get thirsty all over again. xo crew continue to troll but KTT weeknd fam retain their fate that abel will deliver the conclusion of the trilogy before the end of the year.

- rumours of features with other artisits - wiz, juicy j, etc. etc. people are confused with why the goat abel is choosing to feature on so many dusty artists' songs

- jeremy rose aka zodiac speaks the truth about the weeknd. we are all unsure of what to think. is abel a douche irl?

- the xo crew make it 90% clear that EOS will be coming soon, on the last day of winter.

-EOS hype picture drops. we all wait patiently knowing the tape will drop soon, very soon.


- ALL THE BALLOONS POP!!! abel sticks to his word and delievers his third mixtape of the year. EOS drops and everyone is happy and enjoy a great xmas and new year


- EOS begins with a cover of MJ dirty diana. KTT reaction is best exemplified by the goat reviewer big quint:

- people love EOS. mass debate over which of the 3 mixtapes is GOAT

- 2012 begins and the weeknd starts touring more and more and more

- KTT runs a weeknd best song tournament - many feels are caught along the way until Wicked Games narrowly edges out Loft Music to claim the title as the best weeknd song from the trilogy.

- weeknd annouces plans for the trilogy re-release. no one knows when its supposed to come

- performs at coachella and more festivals.

- no new music all year. some stans die of thirst. RIP

- OG crew love snippet leaks.

- performs at WMH is london. best day of OP's life

- signs with universal. plans for trilogy release come into fruition.

- supposed first single, remastered wicked games, drops. OG version>>>>>>>

- make me remember you with wiz drops. everyone likes it!!! some KTTers replay for days to overcome the dehydration from thirst of no 2012 music.

- rolling stone video drops, along with artwork and preorder for trilogy momentarily. like the old days the thread blows up


- people start to breakdown the rolling stone video. is this the last time abel is in our good books.

- abel communicates to his fans with a letter explaining the meaning behind the rolling stone video. his thinking process and why he chose to sign with a label. promises he wont sell out, but some stans dont know what to think


- the fall tour kicks off with amazing on-stage additions - lights light and more lights. videos screens and backup singers (lowkey ewww). the highlight of the tour is the new birds interlude

- wicked games video drops

- 30 second trailers for the trilogy drop featuring snippets of the 3 bonus tracks which will be on the trilogy - twenty eight, valerie and till dawn

- enemy drops. abel streak of not making a bad track continues

- the zone video drops

- November 12/13th finally arrives and the trilogy is in stores. the packaging is unbelievable




- after limited promotion from drake and the ovo crew over the trilogy and then when drake fails to tweet/mention the trilogy during the week of its release many begin to speculate that drake and the weeknd are no longer tight and the ovoxo movement which took over in 2011 is dead. rumours of a drake song titled no new friends is speculated to be directed at abel.

- Abel Dies - he is soon resurrected and begins Chapter II

- Along with the death of abel is the closure of the goat OG Weeknd Thread. New thread is made and new regulars arrive on the scene. The thread is a shame - it becomes a diary full of faggots. A great representation of what being a fan of Abel post-trilogy means.

- Creates instagram account (@abelxo) - mystery continues to fade. Keeps posting selfies.


- Makes TV debut by performing several tracks on Jools Holland. In addition does a studio session for Zane Lower. :allears: Still no interview from this dude

- The second Weeknd best song tournament is run on KTT - this time the party and the after party tops wicked games to take the title.

- Begins hinting at the next project - includes work with Paul Epworth which leads some to believe a reunion with Jeremy Rose (managed under Eppworth) is in the works



- Nomads - a track recorded back during the Thursday era with Rich Hill drops. Mixed reviews but generally liked by everyone. Dat new abel music feeling though :slick:

- Drake win rap album of the year at the grammys. With it, Abel takes home his first official grammy.

- Twenty Eight Video drops - titties are the highlight

- Decides to step up his touring game to another level by announcing a string of UK arena shows for November. People wonder what the fuck this nigga is thinking and whether he will sell out the O2 arena. If you still are wondering, you now know : The mystery has truly faded.

- another track featuring abel drops - this time its with his weed smoking, purp sippin friend Juicy J. The track is called One Of Those Nights and has a short little sample from lonely star ("I Love the Guitars).


- Drake drops a track entitled "5am In Toronto". The track sends subliminal shots towards Abel all but confirming the beef is true and drake is butthurt that abel no longer fucks with him.

- March 2013 - After hinting at it for some time, The Weeknd announces the title to his "debut" album - Kiss Land. Reactions to it are mixed but the vast majority are thrown off by the title and believe Abel is fully focussed on adding to his mainstream appeal and reaching superstar status. People begin to anticipate a techno/poppy album which is miles away from the now classic masterpiece which was House of Balloons and Thursday. Some fans (tanv) hold on to false hope that the album will be a recreation of HOB/Thursday.



- 2 more live acoustic sessions from Maida Vale studios - this time renditions of Valerie and Twenty Eight. Not as impressive as the previous sessions as this time the female backup singers helps out abel.

- May 2013 - a snippet entitled "John Carpenter" is released on the weeknd's YouTube channel. A few days later the first single off kiss land is released.

- Abel features on French Montana's album with a track called "Gifted". A music video is shot but yet to be released.

- Kissland official video drops - features alot of nudity and la porna

- Abel returns to the Mod Club - the site of his first live performance about 2 years ago - and plays some of his classic track for the Toronto faithful. In addition, we hear Kiss Land live for the first time and he premiers the second single off the Kissland album entitled "Belong To The World". Mixed reviews.

- A lowkey listening session for KissLand is held. Articles are made avaliable on the internet but a shortly removed. We learn nothing really new except for "industrial sounds"

- Belong to the World song and official video drop. Im not a fooooooool. Very mixed reviews, mostly negative. People grow further skeptical about what Kissland will deliver.

- The Silence Comes To An End - Abel finally has his first interview by way of Complex Magazine. He talks about his philosophy, relationship with Drake and mindset for recording Kiss Land. We also learn some never before heard things about the OG Trilogy - including Gone being a freestyle and tracks which Abel contributed towards on Take Care were actually intended for the original HOB which was aimed to have 14 tracks. The interview also ends speculation that there was ever anything beef and animosity between OVO and XO.

- Kiss Land release date announced (September 10th) along with the poverty album artwork


- Odd Look drops. Best abel song in a while. People start to ride Kavinsky's dick.

Time Stopped because everything after this point was not worth reminiscing about

That's weird, pretty much everyone I knew in England at that time knew about him from at least mid-2011. Wasn't even like I was running around telling people, people already knew.
