The Weeknd - "Wicked Games"

The Weeknd's House of Balloons was one of my Top 10 albums of last year, and in 2012, it as well as two other mixtapes he put out in 2011 were remastered and sold as Trilogy. "Wicked Games" is from House of Balloons, and it's one of those rare cases where the remixed version really is superior. Damn thing jumps out of the speakers now -- and I was already a fan from last year. Like Weeknd's best stuff, it's sexy, dark and despairing all at once. (Warning: explicit language, if you're wanting to enjoy this in your office cubicle.)
