In the midst of all the chaos that kicked off the spread of COVID-19 within the United States, The Weeknd managed to release the biggest album of the year. Inspired by 1980s pop and pop culture, After Hours kicked off a new era for the Toronto native that mixed nostalgia with current day trends. The formula that was used to create After Hours proved to be immensely successful as it earned him several platinum plaques, the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and a Super Bowl halftime show opportunity.
Through it all, The Weeknd never stopped releasing music. Following the release of After Hours, the global pop star collaborated with Swedish House Mafia, FKA Twigs, Post Malone, Young Thug and countless others. Now, he’s back to deliver his fifth studio album.
Nearly two years after delivering his most successful album yet, The Weeknd has delivered his fifth studio album, Dawn FM. His latest effort includes contributions from Quincy Jones, Lil’ Wayne, Jim Carrey and several other stars.
