The Weeknd is mulling over the possibility of pulling his Trilogy from streaming platform, explaining that he would like fans to listen to the mixtapes “how it’s supposed to be listened to.”

Taking to Twitter to share his thoughts, the XO Records founder noted that there is a difference in the samples and mixing in Trilogy and House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence — the three mixtape that makeup Trilogy. “if y’all wanna hear the trilogy how it’s supposed to be listened to … listen to House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence individually,” he tweeted. “not all samples are on trilogy and the mix isn’t the original mix. But shout out trilogy but fyi, for the new fans, it isn’t an album.”

The Weeknd also addressed the fact that there are fans of Trilogy, possibly prompting him to keep the project available for streaming, “But I also know there are fans of the compilation so I might not get rid of it. But just want it to be clear for all the new fans and weirdly older fans …”

The Canadian crooner dropped House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence in March, August and December 2011, respectively, then dropped Trilogy in November 2012 — almost a full year before releasing his first studio album Kiss Land.

Elsewhere in music, Dua Lipa confirmed that she is not performing at the Qatar World Cup.
