Former collaborator Jeremy Rose has blasted Canadian producer The Weeknd.
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, is known to be reclusive, refusing to give interviews or chat to the public.
So it’s down to former collaborator Rose to speak out and reveal the true nature of Tesfaye.
In an interview with VICE, the producer said he had been deeply unhappy after contributing to The Weeknd’s name and sound.
“I had this idea for a dark R&B project… When I met (Tesfaye) I heard some of the stuff that he was doing. It was called the Noise. Remember that? It came out after he broke. It was this group, with him and another producer and it was called the Noise,” he said.
“They were a straight kind of R&B, just really light and kind of candlelight… (sings) “I wanna see you in your birthday suit”… And I was just like, “Aw, f**k that sh*t. No man, let’s talk about, f**kin’ and getting too high and trying to f**k bitches and it not working out. Let’s get really grimy about it.”
Contributing to a number of early tracks, the relationship between Jeremy Rose and Abel Tesfaye soon soured.
According to Rose, Tesfaye began pushing for some things he didn’t want to do where it got to the point where Tesfaye wouldn’t respect his opinions.
“He wanted me to produce for him without any of my input. And I was like, “Well then, what’s the point of being a group?” and he was like, “You can just be my producer,” and I said, “Are you going to pay me?” Then (I realized he was) not going to pay me. That’s why I backed out,” he continued.
“I was like, “You can have those three or four tracks, I’ll give you the stems, just take ’em, but I don’t want to work with you anymore.” I was really congenial about it, but I told him, “Just make sure that you give me credit,” and that’s where things went sour.”
You know, if someone worked on a track, they should at least be awarded some credit even if it’s for no money. That’s pretty low and unfair of The Weeknd to do that.
