It's been a long wait, but The Weeknd finally came through with his My Dear Melancholy follow-up, After Hours, a collection of glistening vignettes that hybridize the old Abel with the new.

Of course, that's not all that's new this week: fresh releases from J Balvin, John Legend, Justin Bieber and more make their way into this week's episode of the First Stream Live podcast, alongside Adam Lambert's new album Velvet; an interview with the American Idol alum is forthcoming on Billboard's Pop Shop podcast, and you can get a preview in this week's First Stream Live.

Hear all that and more below.
