Over the last year, Abel Tesfaye, a.k.a. The Weeknd, has dominated. The Toronto native notched two #1 singles that each reigned atop the Billboard Hot 100 for multiple weeks, dropped a stellar #1 album, Beauty Behind The Madness, that has since been certified platinum by the RIAA, and performed on some of the world’s biggest stages, including the GRAMMYs and the Academy Awards. Oh, he also brought the legendary Lauryn Hill out of hiding for a performnace on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Not too shabby.
Though he’s still experiencing significant chart success, it looks like it won’t be too long before new Weeknd music hits the streets. Yesterday on Twitter, Abel uploaded a smoke-filled selfie, with the caption, “Chapter done soon. Just let these pages flip.” The “In The Night” often refers to his albums and mixtapes as chapters, and before revealing the title of his most recent album to be Beauty Behind The Madness, merely referred to it as “Chapter III” in social media teasers. Well, with the Trilogy, Kissland and Beauty Behind The Madness chapters already written, where to next?
