After the Weeknd's album leaked last Friday, he responded by posting an 18-minute preview of the whole record on SoundCloud. At a recent Billboard Hot 100 fest performance, he also unveiled "Prisoner," a duet with Lana Del Rey that appears on Beauty Behind The Madness. (A snippet of him singing along to this song surfaced recently from a private party on an English island.) In addition, the Weeknd played his own version of Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love," a fitting cover choice for a performer preoccupied with the connections between sex and narcotics.
Beauty Behind The Madness is out Friday.
