R&B icon The Weeknd delivered one of the biggest albums of 2020 with ‘After Hours’ where songs like ‘Blinding Lights’, ‘Save You Tears’, ‘In Your Eyes’ and ‘Alone Again’ topped the charts for several weeks. Now, it seems the multi-platinum crooner is all set to move ahead with a new project and has already started teasing his massive fan base for the same.
The ‘I Feel It Coming’ hitmaker took to his official Twitter account to drop a subtle hint about his new album and fans soon started making their wild guesses where a majority of them said “The Dawn is coming”, a statement made by The Weeknd himself when he accepted the award for Top Hot 100 Song at the most recent Billboard Music Awards 2021 (BBMAs).
Is The Weeknd all set to announce his new era?
Creating quite a stir on the Internet with a simple tweet, The Weeknd did not reveal the name of the album or said he is going to drop something soon but left a sentence in the mid-way which led to all the fans guessing that ‘The Dawn is coming’ might happen sooner. To create hype for his next project, The Weekend tweeted, “Ladies and gentlemen, the ...”
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter had first teased about his brand new project at the recent BBMAs where he won 10 awards after receiving a record 16 nominations. While accepting an award, The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, said, “I’d like to thank God that I don’t have to wear that red suit anymore” referring to him wearing a red suit for the entire 2020 with an intention to promote his album, ‘After Hours’. He then added, “And I just want to say the After Hours are done and the dawn is coming.” The Canadian singer had earlier tweeted about making new music during the quarantine, saying, “Made so much magic in the small quarantined room” followed by another tweet, “Now just piecing it all together... it’s so beautiful.” At the BBMAs, The Weeknd had scooped Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top R&B Album, Top Hot 100 Song, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top R&B Male Artist, Top R&B Song, Top Radio Song, Top Radio Songs Artist and Top R&B Artist.
‘Why do you play with us?’
As soon as The Weeknd teased his close to 15 million fans on Twitter, a lot of social media users rushed to the micro-blogging site eagerly waiting for his new record. Speaking on the same, one fan said, “The Weeknd is introducing something but seemed to have stopped in the middle of his sentence. I believe he means “the dawn is coming.” Another tweeted, “Can’t wait for that new album to come out!!” One user asked, “Did u fall asleep trying to finish the sentence? While another shared, “No he forgot to complete the tweet just like he forgot his award on stage.”
The next one posted, “The dawn is coming. Drop something or give us news already.” One added, “Bruh if ur gonna pull up with that attitude, don’t listen to Abel. He doesn’t just drop tracks, he makes a whole event around it like After hours.” One fan said, “Dawn is coming! Why do you play with us. It doesn't matter I love you” whereas, another concluded, “The dawn is coming WE GET IT JUST DROP THE ALBUM.”
