Even if you are just starting your week or your weekend, it is a good way to do it at your piano, in the company of The Weekend band, playing one of their best songs – Blinding Lights.
The Weekend is actually formed out of one member – Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, born in 1990.
He is a Canadian singer, record producer and songwriter, acting in the music world since 2009, singing mostly R&B, pop, hip-hop and dance music genres, exploring themes like romance and melancholia.
The Weekend is known for his sonic versatility and dark lyricism, and he has received many accolades, such as Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, MTV Music Awards and so on.
Among his most famous songs, we can name the free Blinding Lights piano sheet music.
The song was released in November 2019 through XO and Republic Records, as part of the artist’s album named After Hours.
Blinding Lights is the second single from the album and was produced by The Weekend, Max Martin and Oscar Holter, and written by Abel Tesfaye, Ahmad Balshe, Jason Quenneville, Max Martin and Oscar Holter.
Once released, the free Blinding Lights piano sheets embraced unexpected success, topped the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks and became the band’s song with most weeks spent in the top 5 and top 10 and also the first song to stay at the top of the charts for an entire year.
Blinding Lights was absolutely loved by the public and finished 2020 as the year’s top Billboard Hot 100 song.
With a length of 3:21 minutes, Blinding Lights was released as a synth-pop music genre song and it enchants us with an incredible rhythm and a great variety of instruments, such as bass, guitar, drums and keyboards.
