The Weeknd got very candid in an interview with Variety and spoke about a wide range of topics. Though the discussion of his own music was at the forefront of the interview, it was his thoughts on Usher’s 2012 hit Climax that is causing an uproar on social media.
There’s no denying that The Weeknd has made hits and has influenced many other artists, but did he try it when he spoke on Usher? In the interview, he recounts the time he first heard Usher’s song. He went on to say: “House of Balloons literally changed the sound of pop music before my eyes. I heard ‘Climax,’ that  Usher song, and was like, ‘Holy f**k, that’s a Weeknd song.’ It was very flattering, and I knew I was doing something right, but I also got angry. But the older I got, I realized it’s a good thing.”
Since the release of the interview, social media is feeling A WAY about it! Hit play and hear a snippet of the song and tell us what you think?
