The Weeknd makes history! After his epic appearance at this year’s Super Bowl, the 31-year-old hit singer “Blinding Lights” was the first song to spend a whole year in the top 10 in the world Billboard Hot 100. “After business hours was always intended as a very personal project. It’s a story I had to tell, “told The Weeknd Billboard. “The fact that I could tell the world by listening to it was incredible. This Billboard Chart record is really a result of the fans. I am so humbled and forever grateful to them. “
“Blinding Lights” was first released in November 2019 and can be seen on The Weeknd’s After business hours Album. The title also holds the record for the longest time a song has stayed in the top 5, with a total of 43 weeks, and it has been named diversityHitmaker’s record of 2020.
Unfortunately, the Recording Academy didn’t recognize The Weeknd’s impact on music over the past year as it was grossly rejected by this year’s nominations. However, he no longer cares what awards ceremonies think. “Look, I personally don’t care,” The Weeknd said earlier Billboard. “I have three Grammys that obviously don’t mean anything to me now. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I want the Grammy!’ It’s just that this happened and I’m downstairs to stand in front of the fire as long as it never happens again. “He added,” I don’t like making speeches anyway. Forget awards ceremonies. “
Congratulations to The Weeknd!
