About The Weeknd: Filtering R&B, pop, and hip-hop through an ambitious widescreen lens, The Weeknd quietly took over popular music and culture on his own terms. As a result, the multi-platinum three-time GRAMMY®Award winner has emerged as one of the most successful and significant artists of the 21st century. Released via his own visionary XO collective and Republic Records, 2012’s double-platinum Trilogy collated three breakout mixtapes—House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence—into his first chart-topping collection followed by the platinum Kiss Land in 2013. Two years later, Beauty Behind The Madness represented a major milestone. This 2015 opus notably achieved a GRAMMY®Award in the category of "Best Urban Contemporary Album," a triple-platinum certification from the RIAA for U.S. sales in excess of 3 million, and over 20 RIAA certifications from tracks alone while “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” received an Academy® Award nomination for “Best Original Song.” That stratospheric rise continued as 2016’s Starboy went triple-platinum, captured #1 in 90 countries, and shattered the global streaming record at the time in under a week. In 2018, his influence continued to expand with My Dear Melancholy. The 6-track project marked his third consecutive #1 bow on the Billboard Top 200, went platinum, and attracted widespread critical acclaim. In 2019, The Weeknd received a rare RIAA diamond certification for “The Hills” after exceeding over 10 million units sold. He also released two new songs, "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights," the former claiming a #1 Hot 100 Billboard chart-topping spot and both earning platinum status. Most recently he has announced his new album, After Hours, set for release on March 20th, 2020. On March 7th he will make his third appearance and musical performance on Saturday Night Live and embark on the massive 57-date world tour, The After Hours Tour, this June.
