The Weeknd presented a new album After Hours

On After Hours, The Weeknd's voice glides over one masterful production after the next with heavy R&B influence and glimmers of dance inspiration. However this time, it's a little more somber. "You were one of the true original backbones of my XO fanbase", he wrote, commemorating the fan who ran both the XO Podcast and the @TheXOPodcast2 Twitter account. "Can't believe I'm finding out about this today".

The other tracks appeared as follows: "Hardest To Love" (#6), "Snowchild" (#7), "After Hours" (#8), "Escape From LA" (#9), "Heartless" (#11), "Faith" (#12), "Save Your Tears" (#13), "Repeat After Me" (#14) and "Until I Bleed Out" (#16).

The late superfan's girlfriend broke the news to Weeknd.

A close friend of Lance tweeted: mental Mental illness and addiction are a motherfucker. He went on Twitter to share a praying hands emoji.

Coronavirus: Kylie Jenner asked for advice because "millennials are not immune"
Happy self-quarantine! I know I already do my daily reminders of the importance of social isolation and self-quarantine right now. In addition, she advised other influencers to spread the message and encourage social distancing.


The Canadian artist dropped his long-awaited highly-anticipated fourth studio album on Friday (March 20) after months of teasing. It's his follow-up to My Dear Melancholy, and Starboy. That was certainly mirrored in his chaotic "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights" videos and in the album's bloody-mouthed aesthetic, and it seeps into all 14 tracks on the new project.

After Hours broke Apple Music's all-time pre-add record on Wednesday (March 19), with almost 1,000,000 album pre-adds before release, surpassing the previous record held by Billie Eilish in 2019.

In the recording plate participated Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), Metro Boomin and Kevin Parker from Tame Impala.
