Anyone remember what the other 2 snippets from Kissland were titled? Also named after some movie directors, right?

@bad vibe Dude you sound so incredibly pretentious. "Best work" is just a subjective term people use, nothing more nothing less - no need to police that.

The thing that’s funny is that a lotta people always say their favourites and the artists “best” work, unless you know production, writing, stylistic choices, roll out, promotional pieces and such you’re not really giving a logical sense of critique, to this day Starboy happens to be his “best work”, bare in mind some of Trilogy (mixtapes for the sake of argument) was recording in the back of a van, bed rooms + Starboy was housed in a studio where he worked with tons of amazing producers and other artists, his budget at the time was through the roof from the success Beauty Behind The Madness brought in, nowadays I see nothing but love to Kissland, it’s one of my favourites too! But Kissland isn’t performed by Abel because Abel at the time had his hands on everything and when it failed commercially it took a blow to him. Simple. It’s good but in no way is it his best. He was just starting out and he finally left Canada this was a little experimental but delved deeper into the 80s wave The Weeknd had bellowing under, Starboy or BBTM is undoubtedly his “best work” whether it’s your favourite, not your favourite, like it or not, logically in quality those are his best albums.

The Weeknd confirmed it in "Complex Magazine" that the song has nothing to do with "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" John Carpenter. So everybody can stop debating about something when the facts were released from the horses mouth 2 months ago. Surprisingly though, Non of the people on here who call themselves real weeknd fans when out and bought the issue or read his interview they posted on online before the magazine issue was even released. computers and the internet are for research too u know

no, it's a reference to the film director. notice the preview video of the song Adaptation titled 'Roman Polanski'. He said in his only interview (as The Weeknd, he had another interview when he was with Bulleez n Nerdz) that he was 'influenced by horror film directors like Ridley Scott and John Carpenter' for the sound of Kiss Land.

John Carpenter was the only man to win "Who wants to be a millionaire" & he won it on 9/10/99 so go figure

Actually, The Weeknd is a really big fan of horror films and with this album he said he wants to scare people and he said the album sounds very 'cinematic'. (Check the complex interview.) John Carpenter is a horror film director, probably one that The Weeknd loves, also check his new snippet called 'Roman Polanski' he was also a director which more so proves the fact that the reason this video is called 'John Carpenter' is because of the film director and not the person to win a game show.

I mean just look at you, getting all fired up because of this one comment. OK, I'm one pontificating bitch. But I won debates with that. I'm not going to change because bitter people like you might get aggravated whenever I say something. And lol you're talking now, but where were you a month ago, before The Weeknd's explanation? No one opposed to my "absurd" assumption then?

bodaciouscans
bodaciouscans Hace 7 años
As you can see, this comment was made a month prior to that statement The Weeknd made.Of course it's conjecture! Those were just my thoughts on this new song I was very excited about. One should take assumptions with a pinch of salt.
TwinShogun
TwinShogun Hace 7 años
Yeah, The Weeknd has specifically stated that he's been inspired by the film maker John Carpenter, and that's part of why Kiss Land is going to have a spooky feel. Your comment about allusion to the financial reward this album might give him is purely conjecture, and you didn't explain what it was that alluded to that anyways.

bodaciouscans Hace 7 años
So the point you are actually making is that it's wrong to speculate and try to figure out what the meaning of a new song is just because you happen to be excited about it? I'm sorry for confusing those who don't know how to distinguish speculation from actual facts. It isn't my fault my thoughts could've spread misinformation or the "wrong" interpretation. You'll need to address those people who pass off my thoughts as facts. Not me. Have a nice day.
bodaciouscans
bodaciouscans Hace 7 años
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! You do realise how condescending you sound? And then it's me who appears to try to sound "so in the know". I don't know what the core of this argument with you is about any more. I've already acknowledged that my assumptions made a month ago were inaccurate. What more do you want me to say? Yes, I believe there are deeper meanings in Abel's words. Abel didn't just title this video 'John Carpenter' only because he thinks he's some jolly good filmmaker?
bodaciouscans
bodaciouscans Hace 7 años
"I'm thinking John Carpenter directed the video or something". It didn't make much sense over a month ago when all of this was still ambiguous. This can't be about knowing things better, because the audience was left in the dark about what/who the artist meant with 'John Carpenter'. I'm aware now that OfficialBEezyMusic's thoughts turned out to be more accurate than mine. I don't know why you're being so bitter about it. Your reaction just reeks of ad hominem - it's rather disturbing.
bodaciouscans
bodaciouscans Hace 7 años
Wow. So much hate. Now I wouldn't be able to speculate if I knew everything, would I? Unless you don't understand the concept of speculating. I posted this well over a month ago, why so much fuss over a post by an "obsessed fan" (which I am not for that matter)? I just said it to shed light on deeper and double meanings often seen in Abel's writing. I just find it interesting to look deeper into his words, what's wrong with that? So I was wrong, I don't care, for I played no role in creating.

I cant tell by the top comment and the people who gave it thumbs up have not read the weeknd Complex Magazine Interview. In which he has stated and confirmed that the song John Carpenter, has nothing to do with the contestant who won "who wants to be a millionaire". A true weeknd fan in which you claim (not me!) to be would know that. The weeknd is an horror and dark art fanatic (hint: his videos!). You can now end the discussion on which john carpenter it is. Go pick up complex magazine!
