Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, most well-known as the falsetto-voiced The Weeknd, is currently sitting on top of the charts with his latest record Starboy. The Daft Punk collaborations, and new-soul and dance vibes have put the record on everyone’s must-hear list. The Weeknd has had an incredible run the past two years with his gigantic chart-topper Beauty Behind the Madness, his work on the Fifty Shades of Grey Soundtrack, and now Starboy.

The Weeknd has transcended his last record, has become tabloid fodder with his recent relationship status to Selena Gomez, and is a super talented vocalist that will hopefully continue pumping out good music. We think its time to take a closer look at the Canadian singers catalog with the Top 10 Songs by The Weeknd.
