The Weeknd Has New Song and a Completely Revamped Image
We're on the verge of saying hello to the weekend in the UAE but this morning we were forced to say goodbye the The Weeknd as we know him.
The musician has undergone a complete image overhaul and has chopped off his dreadlocks; now he sports a 90s-style high top. The star - real name Abel Tesfaye - also got rid of his Instagram moniker "abelxo", instead switching to the very recognizable "theweeknd." Writing "r.i.p @abelxo" as a caption on one of his pictures, we can't help but wonder what his supermodel girlfriend Bella Hadid thinks of the fresh look.
It comes as the 26-year-old promotes his new single Starboy, a collaboration with Daft Punk. Some fans have expressed their disappointment with the track on Twitter but others were totally excited. Check out a preview of the tune in the gallery's Instagram video.
