Biography

´╗┐Abel Tesfaye (born February 16, 1990), known by his stage name The Weeknd (pronounced "weekend"), 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". His second album, Beauty Behind the Madness, which became his first number one album on the Billboard 200, included the top-five single "Earned It" and produced the number-one singles "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face". The songs have held down all of the top three spots on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, making him the first artist in history to achieve this.

Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (born June 21, 1985), better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer, songwriter and model.
Born and raised in New York state, Grant began songwriting at the age of 18, and signed her first recording contract with 5-Points Records in 2007. Her debut studio album Lana Del Ray was released through the label in January 2010, to little attention. She later entered a joint recording contract with Interscope, Polydor, and Stranger Records in July 2011. Her major-label debut Born to Die was released in the following January; aided by initial Internet buzz surrounding her "Video Games" single, it peaked at number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 and was the fifth best-selling album of 2012. A remix of its single "Summertime Sadness", produced by Cedric Gervais, peaked at number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and stands as her highest-charting single in the United States. Paradise was simultaneously released as a standalone extended play and with the expanded version of Born to Die subtitled The Paradise Edition that November. The EP garnered Del Rey her first Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Three of its tracks were featured in her short film Tropico, which premiered in December 2013. Del Rey's third studio album, Ultraviolence, was released in 2014, becoming her first number-one record in the United States. In 2015, she released her fourth studio album, Honeymoon.
Del Rey's music has been noted for its cinematic style and its references to pop culture, particularly that of 1950s and 1960s Americana. The singer has described herself as a "gangsta Nancy Sinatra". She has claimed to draw influence from artists she deems to be "masters of their genre," as well as from poetry and film noir. Del Rey is the most streamed female artist on Spotify in the United States.
