The days of The Weeknd being the shy, enigmatic R&B singer are long gone. Now Abel is an A-list star dating an A-list model, putting out No. 1 hit records and getting this money like he has a couple of kids who rely on him. Pretty good glo up for a guy fans weren’t sure was an actual person or a group at one point. And as always, incredible success The Weeknd is experiencing can only be attributed to one thing and one thing only — The Illuminati.
Now before you label me batshit crazy and regret clicking on this article, I have the receipts!
The Weeknd just debuted his new banger “Starboy” featuring Daft Punk less than a week ago to great success. It was played every hour across all iHeartRadio Pop and Urban stations, and despite the short time frame, “Starboy” debuted at No. 40 on the Billboard 100 based on streaming and sales. That number will surely change when the video, which has already been shot, releases on Wednesday, per The Weeknd’s social media accounts. However, despite the actual music video still being kept under wraps, it’s already being nominated for an award.
