In addition to the video, THE WEEKND received an astounding seven 2016 Grammy Award® nominations. His gold-certified #1 magnum opus Beauty Behind The Madness [XO/Republic Records] garnered nods for “Album of the Year” and “Best Urban Contemporary Album,” the triple-platinum #1 anthem “Can’t Feel My Face” is nominated for “Record of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance,” and “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” is up for “Best R&B Performance,” “Best R&B Song,” and “Best Song Written for Visual Media.”
Right now, THE WEEKND is on the final leg of his The Madness Fall Tour, headlining arenas across North America.
With multiple broken records and countless number ones to his credit, 2015 belonged to THE WEEKND. Beauty Behind The Madness spent three consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and became Spotify’s “Most Streamed Album of 2015.” The triple-platinum certified “The Hills” held #1 on The Billboard Hot 100 for 5 weeks dethroning “Can’t Feel My Face,” which reigned at #1 for three nonconsecutive weeks. As a result, THE WEEKND became “the first artist to rule the Hot 100 successively since 2014” and “the first solo male to lead back-to-back on the Hot 100 since 2008.” In addition, he is “only the 11th act to best himself at #1 over the course of the Hot 100’s 57-year history.” “The Hills” conquered both Billboard’s Streaming Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, cementing him as “the first male artist to rise to #1 with two singles in the same year since 2010.”
