The Weeknd

Born on February 16th, 1990, 22-year-old Canadian musician Abel Tesfaye is of Ethiopian descent but grew up in Toronto, Ontario.

Abel first began recording songs with his friend Jeremy Rose and uploading them to YouTube under the name The Weekend, but after he went solo he decided to drop that extra “e” and perform as The Weeknd, initially keeping his identity a secret and allowing fans online to judge the quality of his music themselves.
