The 'House of Balloons' the influence is strong.

The Weeknd stepped forward to clarify his statements about the inspiration of Usher's 2012 single "Climax." After Diplo — who produced the song —he admitted that he pulled out of the sonics in the House of Balloons, Weeknd jumped in line to pay homage to Usher and the state had not beef.

"Of course, the media blows things out of proportion and take things out of context," he said. "Usher is a King and always a source of inspiration, so it was flattering to hear what he and Diplo did in the climax. XO".centered-ad {
