The Weeknd’s ‘Often’ Wins R&B Song and R&B Video of the Year in 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
The Weeknd crafts the perfect lyrics for a night (or early morning) of sexual pleasure and his fans agree since they pushed his sensual ode "Often" to the top to win R&B Song and R&B Video of the Year in the 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards.
"I usually love sleeping all alone / This time around bring your friend with you / But we ain't really going to sleep at all," the Toronto native croons on the Ben Billions-produced track.
The track competed in the R&B Song of the Year category alongside songs like August Alsina's "No Love," Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em," Tinashe's "2 On" and Teyana Taylor's "Maybe," to name a few. The Weeknd racked up 57 percent of the fans' votes compared to Alsina's 29 percent and Tinashe's five percent.
One look at the video for "Often" and it's apparent why the singer won. If you're not much of a ladies' man or a risk-taker, you can pretend you're in Abel Tesfaye's shoes as he lounges around a hotel room with multiple scantily-clad women. This is one visual that will be on repeat.
The R&B Video of the Year nominees included Elle Varner ("F**k It All"), Jennifer Lopez ("Booty"), Sam Smith ("I'm Not the Only One") and Yuna ("Come Back"), among others.
Take a look at the percentage breakdown in the R&B Song and R&B Video of the Year category below to see how the Weeknd fared compared to the rest.
