The Weeknd brings hits like "I Can't Feel My Face" to Oslo Spektrum this evening.
Abel Tesfaye Makkonen's The Weeknd-project began with a few songs on YouTube in 2010, and he has never looked back. In 2011 he released three successful mixtapes, which in 2012 became the platinum-selling compilation album Trilogy, and in 2013 his first studio album, Kiss Land, went straight to number two on the US charts.
But it was the summer of 2015 and the hits "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face" that made The Weeknd a household name across the globe. The latter was voted the best song of the year by Rolling Stone, and The Weeknd was brought in for album collaborations with Beyoncé and Kanye West and a big tour witrh Rihanna.
In late 2016 he is releasing his eagerly awaited third album, Starboy. The title track, which features Daft Punk, already has 150 million views on YouTube.
