The Weeknd performs acoustic set for BBC Radio 1 Maida Vale session [Audio]

Having dropped into the UK last week for a secret show in West London, The Weeknd continued his British blitz with a live television debut performance on Later with… Jools Holland and an acoustic session for Zane Lowe at BBC Radio 1 – take a listen to the latter below.

The Weeknd‘s debut album, Trilogy, solidly entered the US Billboard charts this week at the Top 4 spot featuring remastered material from his three earlier mixtapes – House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence – which were released for free, in addition to three new tracks.

At his Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 1 this week, the impassioned Toronto native performed acoustic covers of “Wicked Games,” “The Zone,” “The Knowing,” and “Montreal” – listen below, courtesy of CoS.
