The Weeknd sets new record for streams on Spotify, beating Justin Bieber

It has been quite a week for hitmaker The Weeknd, who recently broke a streaming record on music platform Spotify. 

He set a new record for the most streams seen in one day thanks to the release of his highly anticipated new studio album 'Starboy', and he stole the crown from Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber, who previously held the record after his music was streamed 36 million times on November 13, 2015.

The Weeknd will return to the UK in March for a tour and tickets for the concerts are now on sale. Check out the schedule here:
