This will be the weekend that The Weeknd takes all of it.
The singer, actual title Abel Tesfaye, is the most-nominated artist at this 12 months’s Billboard Music Awards, the place he’s up for a whopping 17 trophies, together with Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Collaboration for his single “Save Your Tears” with Ariana Grande and Top R&B Album for his dreamy fifth file Dawn FM.
Known for his flawless falsetto, despondent lyrics, and slow-grooving backbeats, the 32-year-old from Toronto, Canada, has wowed listeners for over a decade now with a seemingly unending string of hits similar to, “Wicked Games,” “Blinding Lights,” “Call Out My Name,” “I Can’t Feel My Face” and, most just lately, “Out of Time.”
He’s carried out his personal halftime present on the Super Bowl. He’s written songs for artists together with Kanye West and Lana Del Rey. He has romanced Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez.
Now, forward of the Billboard Music Awards, it is formally time for Starboy to shine as soon as once more.
