Paper Diamond vs. The Weeknd

There’s nothing like a remix that tickles the fancy and just creates ample amount of excitement. Sometimes a remix will even completely overshadow the original track. Take Paper Diamond’s treatment of The Weeknd’s “Same Old Song.” The original is a deep tempo affair that showcases the vocal pipes that Abel Tesfaye naturally possesses, but Paper Diamond turns it into a high-tempo banger while still managing to heighten the very unique vocal styling’s of Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd).

Paper Diamond released his first EP “Levitate” via Pretty Lights Music last September and now he’s preparing to release his second EP “Paragon,” which doesn’t have a set release date yet. Paper Diamond is currently on the road touring the states throughout January to February with The M Machine, The Polish Ambassador, fellow label mates Paul Basic and SuperVision. Clearly, the Colorado native is starting off his year correct, working harder than ever.
