New Video: The Weeknd – Wicked Games (Live on Jools Holland)

If the remixing, re-packaging and re-releasing of his three mixtapes under the Trilogy umbrella and a slot on Jools Holland has told us anything, it’s that Universal Republic think this is the right time for Abel Tesfaye to make his mainstream crossover.

And there is no denying that his is music that deserves to be heard by infinetly more than currently are. Over the course of four-and-a-half minutes he stole the show from the clutches of the prorgramme’s other performers of note, Lana Del Rey and Palma Violets.

His voice, along with a beefy live band ensures that this is absolute bliss.
