Abel Makkonen Tesfay, better known as The Weeknd, believes that his music career as The Weeknd should end soon. The Canadian musician and his co-star Lily-Rose Depp sat down with W Magazine to talk about the HBO project prior to the show’s release on June 4.
I’m going through a cathartic path right now. It’s getting to a place and a time where I’m getting ready to close the Weeknd chapter. I’ll still make music, maybe as Abel, maybe as The Weeknd. But I still want to kill The Weeknd. And I will. Eventually. I’m definitely trying to shed that skin and be reborn.The Weeknd
The Canadian singer added that the trilogy, which began with 2020’s After Hours and 2018’s Dawn FM, would be finished with his following album.
The album I’m working on now is probably my last hurrah as The Weeknd. This is something that I have to do. As The Weeknd, I’ve said everything I can say.The Weeknd
Following his Uncut Gems debut in 2019, the singer is currently gearing up to reprise his role as an actor alongside Jenna Ortega in a forthcoming movie.
