Linkin Park released their seventh album, One More Light, on May 19, 2017 after a few months of behind-the-scenes footage on their YouTube channel, along with a few standard lyric videos promoting its various tracks.

After Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns, the band has continued into a space where they don’t try to do one or the other, but continue to blend, blend, blend, creating familiar yet new sounds group-wise, for the indecisive, open-minded listener. Does the new album stand up among Linkin Park’s rest?

Abel Tesfaye, better known as his stage name The Weeknd, has come along way from being the underground, Toronto crooner with his chart-topping album Starboy. The Weeknd has slowly climbed to stardom and proves that he is prepared to remain at the top of the charts.
