All of this created a buzz we haven't seen for a R&B singer in quite some time, he has been performing and selling out shows since then and all without a major deal or a debut album.
Now all of that is about to change.
Yesterday The Wekend and his imprint XO announced a joint venture with Universal Music subsidiary Republic Records.
The Toronto native has plans to release a trilogy package on November 13th which will contain “House of Balloons” “Thursday” and “Echoes of Silence” remastered along with 3 new bonus tracks to be included.
To prepare for the trilogy release, The Weeknd has plans to release his first single off the project titled “Wicked Games” on iTunes soon.
Congrats to The Weeknd, it's well deserved.
