THE WEEKND Credits DEFTONES For Inspiring His Early Work

Canadian singer The Weeknd has had plenty of hits over the past nearly 10 years.

Turns out the three tapes that make up Trilogy were also pretty inspired by Deftones.

The Weeknd revealed the inspiration on Twitter, and of course we had to go listen to Trilogy to see if the influence is obvious. Turns out it totally is, especially in some of the more lo-fi style beats and instrumental backings.

Now all we need is a Weeknd tour with Deftones, because how cool would that be?
