Akiko Mims Cuts a Rug to The Weeknd - "The Birds (Part 1)"
On the heels of Thursday (mixtape), The Weeknd liberated the accompanying music video for "The Birds (Part 1)" earlier this morning (Monday). While the collection was reelased just a few days before the weekend, "The Birds" has been circulating around the inner-workings of The Web since roughly June 16th. Over the course of the day, R&B/Hip-Hop fans and music critics alike have been perplexed as to weather or not to dub the clip "official" or "unofficial." Both theories, in fact, have rhyme/reason and are highly possible... as like previously mentioned, "The Birds (Part 1)" has been out since mid-June. The logistics of whomever produced this Day-Glo dance clip don't really matter; An enjoyable track that's part of a larger enjoyable collection, Thursday can now be downloaded @ the-weeknd.com. Echoes of Silence... Part 3 of The Weeknd's "Balloon Trilogy," is expected TBR in the Fall.
