The Weeknd says that Kanye West used his 2010 track "Devil in a New Dress
" as a reference for his work on "Tell Your Friends."
"Everyone's a character on my album, and his production, voice, and input is a character, too," he told Pitchfork
. There's so much detail in his sessions, and he definitely helped craft who I've been, subconsciously, for the past few years. To actually be with him and talk to him and work with him, it's just like coming to life."
