    No wicked games here.

    Yesterday marked the 10-year anniversary of The Weeknd's debut mixtape, House of Balloons, and the superstar, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, decided to celebrate this milestone in the best way.

    He reissued the mixtape, which is now available on Spotify and Apple Music.

    The reissue of House of Balloons includes the original mixes and samples, some of which never made it onto Trilogy, a compilation album of The Weeknd's three early mixtapes.

    On Sunday for its 10 year anniversary I’m releasing House of Balloons on all streaming platforms for the first time in it’s original incarnation. With the original mixes and samples. 🎈

    The mixtape's samples include Aaliyah's "Rock the Boat," Siouxsie and the Banshees’ "Happy House," and Beach House’s "Gila."

    It's safe to say that this work of art is reminiscent of summer of 2011, and the fans were ecstatic to hear the news of this rerelease:

    “It is a great privilege to work with The Weeknd and the XO team to reimagine the iconic album art of House of Balloons as an eroded sculpture for the 10-year anniversary,” the artist said about the collab.
