The Weeknd's sound has been described as hipster R&B (or PBR&B to some), and his tracks have sampled a huge range of artists from indie-rockers Beach House to R&B megastar Rihanna. His slow grooves and falsetto croon create a beautiful and sometimes creepy backdrop for what are often sexually-charged lyrics.

Lecrae Moore, known simply as Lecrae, is an American rapper and producer who has become one of the foremost stars in the Christian hip-hop scene. His brash demeanor and southern crunk production is bolstered by his smooth flow about his faith in Jesus Christ. His debut album Real Talk was released in 2004 through Reach Records and re-released by Cross Movement Records the following year, followed by 2006’s After the Music Stops and 2008’s Rebel, which reached number one on the Gospel chart, the first Christian hip-hop album to do so. His fourth solo album Rehab came out in 2010 and topped the Christian, Gospel, and Independent charts, as well as earning a Grammy nomination. 2011 saw the release of Rehab: The Overdose and Lecrae’s performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher, catching some attention from the mainstream.
