The Weekend recently released his new album “The Highlights” on Feb. 5. It contains 18 songs and takes about an hour and seventeen minutes to listen to. “The Highlights” is The Weeknd’s second greatest hits album. This album consists of all of The Weeknd’s greatest hits. This album fits the genres new wave, dream pop, dark wave and alternative R&B.  

    I enjoyed this album more than I thought that I would. I never really listen to the weekend so this album wasn’t what I was expecting. If you’re in a good mood, this is the album you need to listen to. It brings good vibes and will boost your mood. My favorite song on this album is “Feel It Coming.” This song is upbeat and makes me feel happy as well as powerful.

    I can definitely see myself listening to this album again. I did not expect to like it but it definitely surprised me. Out of the 18 songs, I genuinely enjoyed 14 of them. I would definitely consider listening to more of his music after hearing this album.

    If you’re looking for a good album to listen to, this is definitely the one. You can listen to this album on Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music and Deezer. No matter what the occasion may be, this is the album to listen to. Overall, I would rate this album an 8 out of 10.
