How many remixes of the same song can happen before it gets just plain silly? Apparently more than a few. Just check out The Weeknds take on Trust Issues and hold on because the explanation gets rather confusing. The three-minute remake from The Weeknd is actually a remix of a Drake reimagining of a Drake song, Im On One, which originally appeared as the second single from DJ Khaleds Cash Money debut, We the Best.
It may take more than a few re-reads of that sentence to fully understand whats going on, but it wont take that much effort to get sucked into the cut, which Pigeons and Planes posted on Saturday night. The Weeknd the project of Toronto-based crooner Abel Tesfaye keeps Drakes hypnotizing instrumental mostly intact, but utilizes the man’s seductive delivery to make taking drugs and not trusting romantic interests almost sound irresistible. Tesfaye doesnt rap on the track, and we dont know if Trust Issues will appear on an upcoming mixtape tentatively titled, Thursday, but it is streaming in all of its glory below.
