New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Global star The Weeknd has just earned two simultaneous Platinum selling singles with his latest hits "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights".

Both songs have earned nearly a billion global streams and have hit #1 across streaming platforms and airplay charts in several major international markets.

On March 7th, The Weeknd will be making his third appearance as musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Revisit the music videos for "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights" and his captivating performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live! below.

Past Press on The Weeknd's TV Performances:
"Invigorating" - BILLBOARD
"As has been the case thus far with other TV performances from this era of Abel, he was very much in character for the Kimmel performance, notably revisiting the aesthetic that's so prominent in the videos for both 'Blinding Lights' and 'Heartless.'" - COMPLEX
"Thunderous ... Wearing that now-iconic red suit blazer, The Weeknd's wicked show was unforgettable." - MTV
"The Toronto singer-songwriter brought along all of the visual proponents that made the previous two Anton Tammi-directed music videos so compelling." - HYPEBEAST
"the Weeknd has been creating wild, ambitious setpieces, like the Colbert performance that he spent wandering around in the catacombs under the Ed Sullivan Theatre. Last night, the Weeknd was on Kimmel, and he gave another one that'll stick with you." - STEREOGUM
"Much like the tracks themselves, these performances have been uniquely visceral, feeling less like disposable one-viewing affairs and more like music videos with staying power among your internet browser's excessive tabs." - FLOOD
