The Weeknd Collaborates with Doja Cat for In Your Eyes Remix

The Weeknd does it again with yet again another controversial remix. Abel known for his dark explicit songs and falsetto voice put out the In Your Eyes Remix featuring Doja Cat.  Many complain that the 24-year-old singer/rapper was not a good fit. The same arguments were made in 2015 when The Weeknd released The Hills Remixes with Eminem and Nicki Minaj. The Weeknd is known to think outside of the box in terms of his features as if it was a sinister scheme or a master plan. In this case Doja Cat adds to the 80's trapped in Vegas-style music.

The video causing an outrage went viral in a matter of minutes. The Mc Michaels released a statement concluding that Arbery was a possible burglary suspect. According to Source Magazine the calls were recorded as :

"The first call was anonymous: a man reported Ahmaud looking at a house that was under construction and running down the street. Allegedly, there have been multiple break-ins in this area of Brunswick before, and the caller suspected a possible crime.

The second call was from Gregory McMichael, father of Travis McMichael, with whom Ahmaud was tasseling over a gun in the video. In the recording, the elder McMichael is out of breath, only reports “a black male running down the street” and ends the call abruptly after yelling “Stop that damn it, stop!” to his son."
