Canadian R&B performer Abel Tesfaye, known as The Weeknd, began his career with the anonymous release of a few songs on YouTube in 2010. The following year, The Weeknd released three critically acclaimed mix tapes, House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence. The mixtapes’ songs were remastered and combined with three additional songs to create 2012’s Trilogy, which was released under Universal Republic Records and The Weeknd’s own label, XO, and was met with critical and commercial success.
In March 2013, The Weeknd announced his plans for an upcoming album titled, Kiss Land. The title track debuted on The Weeknd’s twitter on May 16, 2013.
The Weeknd has won numerous awards, including the 2012 Sirius XM Indie Award for Solo Artist of the Year and 2013 Juno Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. The Weeknd was most recently nominated for a 2013 BET Award for Best New Artist.
