The Weeknd is not having a rest !
For someone nicknamed The Weeknd, Abel Tesfaye is not of the lazy kind ! The Canadian artist is still going incredibly strong, years after years. We all remember his performance last year at the Super Bowl, and his album After Hours which is already a cult classic.
Recently, Tesfaye has announced working on his new album, Dawn, which is close to being finished. He will then support the release with a massive Tour. We also saw him collaborating with Post Malone on One Right Now, and with Swedish House Mafia on Moth To A Flame. It’s simple, he is absolutely everywhere ! And we may follow his adventure on TV pretty soon too…
The Weeknd’s series “The Idol” going to pre-production !
The Weeknd has signed a deal with the legendary HBO for the production of the series The Idol. The artist is co-writer and co-star of this story involving a young artist falling for a self-help guru. Many big names have already announced being part of the project, the latest being the dream pop artist Troy Sivan.
There will also be Lily-Rose Depp, Amy Seimetz, Suzanna Son, Melanie Liburd and many more. Alex is quite excited about the result ! So far, the show is only entering the pre-production phase. Therefore, do not expect a release date before at least the end of 2022, and most probably 2023. Alex will keep an eye on the news surrounding the project and will keep you informed !
