The Weeknd About

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye (born February 16, 1990 in Scarborough, Ontario), otherwise known as The Weeknd, is an R&B/pop/hip-hop singer hailing from Toronto, Canada. He has been referred to as the songbird of his generation and the best musical talent since Michael Jackson throughout his career.

The Weeknd gained widespread critical acclaim for his three mixtapes, House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence, which he later compiled to make a remastered, three-disc album titled Trilogy after signing his record deal with Republic. In 2013, he released Kiss Land, which was considered to be his debut studio album.

In 2014, he dropped “Often,” a remix of Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love,” and “King of the Fall.” The Weeknd released two songs in collaboration with the film Fifty Shades of Grey, with “Earned It” becoming his solo breakout hit.

His second studio album became highly-anticipated, with riveting singles like “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face” leaving fans hungry for more. Beauty Behind the Madness was released on August 28, 2015.

His third studio album, Starboy, was released on November 25th, 2016. The title track leads the effort as the lead first single, released on Wednesday, September 21st, 2016. It was followed by “False Alarm.” On Thursday, November 17th, he released a second set of singles, titled “Party Monster,” and “I Feel It Coming.”

His first official EP, My Dear Melancholy, (released on March 30, 2018) has themes revolving around his breakups with Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez.

Now, Tesfaye is set to drop his highly-anticipated fourth studio album, supported by November 2019-released singles “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights”, as the former became his fourth number one single on Billboard Hot 100.
