The Weekend already proved he can woo the world with “Earned It” and make us dance with “Can’t Feel My Face” so why not add another notch to the belt? His first released collaboration off his upcoming album Beauty Behind the Madness (coming Aug. 28) is called “Prisoner” featuring the sultry queen herself, Lana Del Rey. The Weeknd’s falsetto takes the lead on the chorus as the verses serve to be a guide on how to love; “love will always be a lesson, lets get out of its way.” The powerful bass in this song drive it to be a definite R&B hit and Lana’s easy-going verse just adds to the sex appeal of the song. Abel swoons to the song admitting he’s a prisoner to love; something Lana Del Rey knows very well. The two compliment each other musically, lyrically, and aesthetically.

Lana Del Rey is back and so are her melancholy tunes. Her latest single “Honeymoon” features Rey singing in her classic nonchalant fashion as a pretty string section backs her up. A song fit for a classic old-timey soundtrack during a tender loving moment between two fancy dressed lovers. The lyrics remain enchanting and focused on love and the colors surrounding it; “Our honeymoon…say you want me too, dark blue.” She later goes on to sing, “There are violets in your eyes…there are roses in between my thighs and fire that surrounds you.” This isn’t another “Summertime Sadness” and will most likely never be played on the radio but that’s what makes it so unique. Rey manages to capture the beauty of real music using her incredible voice that soars effortlessly over every single word. Only someone truly talented could get away with creating a song like this and making it perfection, and that’s her.
