The Weeknd recently overtook Justin Bieber as the most-streamed artist on Spotify. The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, broke the Spotify record for monthly listeners this weekend with 85.66 million.
Prior to Able, Bieber had the most monthly listeners, with over 84 million. The recent release of the Earned It singer’s fifth studio album, which was released earlier this month, most likely contributed to his success!
The Weeknd’s Dawn FM album was released after nearly a year of suspense; his previous album, “Blinding Lights,” was released in August of last year. Apart from the album’s funky music, his song Here We Go Again made news since it hinted at the singer’s romance with Angeline Jolie. “And my new girl, she a movie star/My new girl, she a movie star/I loved her right, make her scream like Neve Campbell,” the song’s lyrics go. But I swear it cures my depressin’ thoughts when I make her laugh.”
