#OffKey: The Weeknd Covers R. Kelly’s ‘Down Low’

Abel covers the R.

During Saturday’s episode of OVOSOUND Radio, The Weeknd debuted his cover of R. Kelly’s classic “Down Low.” The R&B jam stays true to the original off 1995’s R. Kelly as Abel seductively sings about a secret relationship.

“Secret lovers is what you wanna be,” he croons. “While making love to him, girl you’re silently calling on me.”

Earlier this week, The Weeknd kicked off Phase 2 of his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” with special guests Gucci Mane and NAV. The 33-date run will hit North America, New Zealand, and Australia this fall.

Keep it on the DL with XO.
