words can’t describe the love i have for this man and his music.

The more heartbreak he goes through, the quieter to the public eye he is, and his music becomes more and more raw. Almost a window into his mind.

I love how he is so private in his life. But through his music he is raw and open.

Selena deserves ZERO credit. People need to stop hopping on the "Thanks selena for breaking Abel's heart" bandwagon. He has been able to create soulful masterpieces from DAY ONE no thanks to her. 👏🏽

Idk why but I think Lana Del Rey and Abel as a couple would really work. They both have an artistic side along with this mysterious aura that surrounds them and their music is mostly deep and meaningful.

I’ve been a fan of his since trilogy and hearing this new album really brings me back to a trilogy vibes. Don’t get me wrong I still love his music but Starboy was just so different than his old music I was really disappointed. Now I am happy than ever and hoping he will have a tour😩

I had very little enthusiasm for modern music, stuck to classic rock a lot. Then Abel happened. I feel blessed to be young and alive in this very moment, going through the vibes his music gives. This latest album is far too relatable and beautiful all at once, it couldn’t have come at a better time.

When I first heard “I Was Never There” I left a comment on the official YouTube audio video that got upvoted alot surprisingly lol I jokingly said “this shit makes me want to get into a relationship just to break up and then feel this way 😂”. Since then I’ve met someone. And I’m terrified that the universe is about to fuck with me 🤔

The Weeknd is an Aquarius and the way he sings is mesmerizing but yet its so dark and addicting. He is so mysterious and private but his music and lyrics shine a light for his life and he feeds is his emotions raw. Such raw talent that he has. He lets you into the dark and consoles us and lets us listen to it and feel out emotions and once he is done, he gives us our lives back and lets us keep our emotions. Plus, he takes the time out to really listen to his fans! Kudos to him. A really underrated artist and his music as well.

His Ethiopian roots are showing with these sick vocals. The way he hits emotional truth by creating a musical trance. He's laying the groundwork for real spiritual revelations that I know will come later in his career.

3:42 "She Speaks of Love, and Breaks each man to her Will." That quote is a PERFECT Description of what a True Narcissist Does. That's the kinda person that broke his heart and that Pain mixed with his Passion Fueled this new project. That's what i believe anyway. Thank you Abel for this Masterpiece.
