listened to dawn FM a few times and it’s a really really GOOD album. it has some songs that seriously stand out sonically and lyrically. his voice is amazing per usual. i feel as if this album is a more dark, gritty, EDM Kissland/Trilogy. he definitely leveled up once again

‘Dawn FM’ Expected To Be The Weeknd’s Fourth Number One Album.
At this pace, The Weeknd should have his fourth consecutive number one album, with “Dawn FM.” The Canadian superstar had been teasing this project since the fall, and even had a huge lead single put out last August, in “Take My Breath.”
The Weeknd has established himself as one of the biggest artists in the world as well, with his last two album releases. His dominance even resulted in a Super Bowl halftime show performance, in 2021.
