Riff: The Weeknd – “Often”

Jun 26, 2014

I usually love sleeping all alone/This time around bring your friend with you/But we ain’t really going to sleep at all/You ain’t gonna catch me with them sneak pictures

from Often lyrics by The Weeknd

Steeped in orgy juice with little real estate to maneuver. More than anything it’s a formulaic crow with his bedroom skills getting the lion’s share of the superlatives. All things considered it’s a crisp and clean offering, a proper explanation as to why he always looks like he just woke up.
