The Weeknd Reveals He Wrote ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ Songs In Marilyn Monroe’s Bedroom !

In a recent interview with GQ, The Weeknd reveled some of the magic to his most recent project 'Beauty Behind the Madness.' Two of the songs released from the highly anticipated album already hold two spots in the top five of the Billboard 100 chart.

The Weeknd told GQ magazine about a couple of moments that led to a breakthrough in his music, which include artist Ed Sheeran and Marilyn Monroe.


The Weeknd talked about the time he spent with Ed Sheeran, who is featured on BBTM, in a song called, "Dark Times." He said, "I wrote a song with Ed Sheeran that was kind of spontaneous," continuing, "He was hosting the Much Music Awards in Toronto and I invited him, and pretty much the entire awards show, to my condo to party. It went on until about 5 in the morning but we didn't write the song until that next day, so you can imagine how that night went. Ed also did a freestyle battle with Waka Flocka in my kitchen. That was pretty dope."

The Weeknd also worked with producer Max Martin, who contributed to his number one hit "Can't Feel My Face." He said, "Max's studio used to be Marilyn Monroe's old house and I came up with the concept for a song called "In the Night" in her bedroom. That was pretty amazing. Unfortunately I couldn't help but imagine Joe DiMaggio's sperm everywhere on the floor."

LOL!

The Weeknd will be headlining Billboard's Hot 100 Music Festival on Aug. 22. And his album Beauty Behind the Madness is set to drop August 28th.
