What sets The Weeknd apart from all artists the most is that his music is
like nothing we've ever heard before, it's pretty much it's own genre and
the absolute great thing about him is that he's only getting started!!!!

So here's what I think happened - The Weeknd recorded this song with the
original sample from Machine Gun from Portishead, 100% confident that it
would be approved for use. Then Geoff Barrow received a cocky , rude and
arrogant letter from the Weeknd's music publisher, and thought, no you
can't use it you cheeky bastards. The Weeknd then panicked, thought "Shit,
what can I do ? I'm already committed to this song, and it's finished" .
Then some smart arse suggests rerecording the sample, changing it ever so
slightly that way we can weasel out of any copyright claims and deny we
ever asked for the sample in the first place. But, oh shit - Geoff kept
the letter ....

tunnel? Go outside!

I recognize that sound from 2:31, the singing thing. Does anyone know
where/what it's from?

Well. If I would have been Abel Tesfaye and didn´t get permission to borrow
a beat from Portishead, I would have thought; well fuck you I will anyway.

Who are portishead? Looking at some of these comments it seems they
invented the sound a machine gun makes, and are suing people for making a
similar noise? Seem to have a few internet warriors for an unknown band.

I don't mind about the band or their music... but just how pathetic someone
has to be that they have to rip-off someone else's work to put their own
out? If the song's lyrics and music are strong a different beat would have
done, but of course, not the case... I keep wondering if they just went
ahead and did it hoping Portishead and their millions of fans wouldn't
notice? How stupid is that?

GTfO with that portishead bullshit. Why the fuck would you even be watching
a video you don't even like? Oh, to go out of your way and spend your time
hating? Sounds about right. Kill yourself haters.

For all those complaining about portishead, I bet you anything that this

I love this video so much a lot of people say my song "right there" reminds
them of his work so i guess if the weeknd's music speaks to you please go
to my channel and take a quick watch of my first visuals "Edikan - Right
there" i hope the heart felt lyrics and visuals capture your attention like
it has done man cheers

This is really good... But the beat is an exact ripoff of Portishead's
"Machine Gun", which he claims he didn't sample or try to copy here even
though he sent a request to sample it that got denied.
