Singer Abel Tesfaye, popularly known as The Weeknd, recently announced that his upcoming music release will be his final feature. During a concert on his After Hours Til Dawn tour in Warsaw, Poland, the pop R&B artist performed an unreleased track titled “Another One of Me” and told the crowd that it would be his last feature in his career. He shared a clip of this moment on Twitter, reaffirming that the song would be his “final feature,” unless Daft Punk ever reunites.
As of now, the release date for the record has not been announced, and it is unclear who Tesfaye collaborated with on the track. However, he has previously worked with Daft Punk on the song “I Feel It Coming” from his third studio album, “Starboy.” He has admired Daft Punk and considers them one of the reasons he makes music.
Throughout his music career, Tesfaye has been known for his frequent collaborations. He first gained recognition by appearing on Drake’s 2011 song “Crew Love.” Since then, he has released popular collaborative hits like “Love Life” with Future, “Lust Life” with Lana Del Rey, and “Tears in the Club” with FKA Twigs.
Tesfaye’s announcement about his final feature comes after his previous statement about “killing” his stage name, The Weeknd. In an interview with W Magazine in May, he mentioned that he feels the need to shed that persona and be reborn. He expressed his desire to continue making music under his real name, Abel, or possibly a new alias. He considers his upcoming album to be his “last hurrah” as The Weeknd.
In conclusion, Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, has declared that his forthcoming music release will be his final feature. He remains a highly collaborative artist and has worked with notable musicians throughout his career. As he prepares to shed his stage name and evolve artistically, fans eagerly anticipate his upcoming album.
