Biography

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye (born 16 February 1990), known by his stage name, The Weeknd (pronounced "the weekend"), is an Ethiopian-Canadian singer, songwriter and record producer. Tesfaye anonymously uploaded several songs to YouTube under the name "The Weeknd" in 2010 and released the critically acclaimed mixtapes House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence in 2011. The mixtapes were later remastered and rereleased on the compilation album Trilogy (2012), after he signed with Republic Records and created his own record label XO.
Tesfaye has had two number-one albums Beauty Behind the Madness in 2015 and Starboy in 2016. Tesfaye has also had a top-two release Kiss Land in 2013 on the US Billboard 200. His first extended play My Dear Melancholy, was released in 2018. He has earned eight top-ten entries on the Billboard Hot 100: "Love Me Harder" with Ariana Grande, "Earned It", "I Feel It Coming", "Pray for Me" with Kendrick Lamar, "Call Out My Name", and the number one singles "The Hills", "Can't Feel My Face", and "Starboy". In 2015, Tesfaye became the first artist to simultaneously hold the top three positions on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart with "Can't Feel My Face", "Earned It", and "The Hills". Tesfaye has won three Grammy Awards and nine Juno Awards.

Gesaffelstein released his debut album Aleph on October 28, 2013 under Bromance Records, OWSLA, Parlophone Records and EMI Music, which had been recorded since 2011.
