Portishead lead singer Geoff Barrow tweeted. "When someone asks to sample you and you refuse they should have the respect as a fellow artist to not use it." The Weeknd went ahead and used the sample anyway and even produced this expensive video to go along with it. Oh, were you using that? Barrow says "I don't wanna get paid... I just want my beat back." We'll have to wait and see how everything plays out but until then visit Barrow's Twitter, where he is re-tweeting negative feedback...towards himself. Lolz.
Abel's got the blues that just won't quit Leave it to Abel Tesfaye to turn shots of beautiful, scantily clad ladies into a huge bummer. The Weekend's new video for his Trilogy bonus track "Twenty", is as somber as his heartbreaking croon. Here we see Abel, who, just like the nude girls being pushed on stage, appears trapped and tired while giving a press interview. Nabil Elderkin, who also shot Frank Ocean’s similarly gloomy "Pyramids" video, directed the clip. Dude seems to have a thing for down-and-out pole dancers. Watch The Weeknd in a new video for his track "Twenty Eight," below.
The Weeknd's new video will get you in the zone The Weeknd releases a self-directed video to go along with "The Zone" featuring Drake.

In "How's Everyone" he purrs lines like "Of course we're in the shower/And of course the water's hot." It isn't even a question. Hit THOMAS' bandcamp for some free downloads off B R E A T H. "How's Everyone" is at top of the list.
