According to a recent interview by The Guardian UK, The Weeknd admits using recreational drugs to overcome writer’s block;

“When I had nothing to do but make music, It was very heavy. ‘Drugs were a crutch for me,”

Bitterly, The ‘Starboy’ revealed it was a habit he picked up during his early days of making music, raised by a single mother with no father or a father figure that would have put him on check

He said;

“There were songs on my first record that were seven minutes long, rambling – whatever thoughts I was having when I was under the influence at the time.”

‘I can’t see myself doing that now,”

But surprisingly, despite his determination, He still takes to drugs whenever  he hits a creative brickwall.

“I’ll be completely honest with you, the past couple of albums, I do get back to that,”

“Even on this album, you have writer’s block, and sometimes you’re like “I can’t do this sober.”

“Right now, I feel in control, he said. Where it takes me after, I don’t know.”
