Top singer of the month – The Weeknd


Welcome to another post featuring our artist of the month, and today we will talk about one of the top and upcoming R&B singers of the past few years – The Weeknd!

Abel Tesfaye (born February 16, 1990), known by his stage name The Weeknd.
Born on February 16, 1990 in Scarborough, Ontario. He is of Ethiopian descent; his parents migrated from Ethiopia in the 1980s. He grew up listening to a variety of music genres, including soul, quiet storm, hip hop, funk, indie rock, and post-punk. Since Tesfaye’s father was never around when he was growing up, and his mother was constantly working, his grandmother took care of him most of his young life. Because of this, Tesfaye speaks fluent Amharic; it was the first language he learned.
The Weeknd is a Canadian singer, songwriter and record producer. In late 2010, Tesfaye anonymously uploaded several songs to YouTube under the name “The Weeknd”. He released three nine-track mixtapes throughout 2011: House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence, which were critically acclaimed. The following year, he released a compilation album Trilogy, thirty tracks consisting of remastered versions of the mixtape material and three additional songs. It was released under Republic Records and his own label XO. In 2013, he released his debut studio album Kiss Land, which was supported by the singles “Kiss Land” and “Live For”.
The Weeknd has received praise from several music publications, including Pitchfork, MTV, BET, Rolling Stone, XXL and The Source.
