Tesfaye's stage moniker is derived from the fact that he "left high school and my family's house one weekend and never came home," according to him.
His first greatest hits album, The Weeknd, was published in Japan in 2018.
The Weekend paid $21 million for a penthouse overlooking the Beverly Hills Country Club in Los Angeles in December of 2019.
In June 2017, The Weeknd purchased a three-acre estate in Hidden Hills, California, for $18 million.
He has a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Maserati, a Tesla Model S, and many other luxury cars.
