From New Year’s Eve weekend to nightclub gigs, The Weeknd’s been around Las Vegas for years. He previously played the Life is Beautiful festival in 2014. Come September, we can’t wait to hear what Abel Tesfaye’s been working on … but here are some things we know we love about him right now.
My Dear Melancholy
Sometimes, less is more. The just-released EP My Dear Melancholy contains six tracks, which is enough to hold us over until we get a proper Starboy follow-up.
Type in “The Weeknd Hair” in Google and look at the autocomplete options that might pop up such as “The Weeknd Hair Journey” and “The Weeknd Hair Transformation.” Not to mention there’s an infinite number of how-to articles and videos. When your hair creates so much internet buzz, you know you’ve done something right.
“I Feel It Coming”
We’ve stopped texting “U up?” and instead we just send a link to the song on Spotify. It means the same thing.
Again, the hair.
These lines from “Wicked Games”
Bring the cups, baby, I could bring the drank / Bring your body, baby, I could bring you fame / And that’s my motherfucking words, too / Just let me motherfucking love you

That was our last moment together—just us and The Weeknd at T-Mobile Arena. September can’t come soon enough.
