The Weeknd took to Instagram two days ago to vaguely tease a new project to his fans, claiming he was “indifferent” about the release. However, the six-song project, My Dear Melachony, dropped today and fans on Twitter are giving their microwave hot takes and critiques.
The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, is an executive producer of the project alongside Frank Dukes. French producer Gesaffelstein returns to collaborate with The Weeknd on two songs, with Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo also on the production side. Skrillex, Mike WiLL Made-It, Cirkut, Daheala, and Marz are also involved. Composer Nicolas Jarr is also involved on the EP’s first track, “Call Out My Name.”
Twitter fans are largely loving the record, with a small number of detractors. For balance, we’ve shared both sides below and on the following pages.
