Imagine being so successful, you could buy a house and have no idea what it looks like. Sounds awesome, right? Wrong! It's fucking terrible! A life of travel and excess is nothing but drug abuse, greedy lovers, lies, false friends, and emptiness!
At least, this is what we've deduced from listening to the Weeknd's beautifully soulful yet utterly hopeless ten-track wonder Kiss Land. It's a world where dreamers fulfill their fantasies while their insides slowly wither and die. But you know, in a sexy way.
The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) and his crew will be leading all of Miami's lost souls to Kiss Land on Saturday, September 28, and if you dare to take the journey, it's a ride you'll never forget. Be warned, though, you'll meet some real shady characters, and after a while, they all start to seem the same. So take our handy guide with you. This and XO is all you'll need.
