The Weeknd

The Weeknd's speedy rise to world pop domination has been extraordinary. One of SOCAN's most celebrated songwriters, he’s been nominated for an Academy Award, and won two Grammies and nine JUNOs. The Weeknd began completely anonymously in 2011, breaking out with three download-only mixtapes of dark, moody R&B. His Beauty Behind the Madness album has sold more than three million units in America alone, where three of its singles have each sold multi-platinum. The title-track lead single from his current album Starboy was streamed 17 million times globally in its opening weekend, , and his April 2018 album My Dear Melancholy, was his third to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard U.S. charts.
