This is no surprise to some after Abel has discussed his future using the alias, ‘The Weeknd’, and how he’s ready to wrap it up with The Weeknd’s career.

“It’s getting to a place and a time where I’m getting ready to close the Weeknd chapter,” he told W Magazine in an interview. “I’ll still make music, maybe as Abel, maybe as The Weeknd. But I still want to kill The Weeknd. And I will. Eventually. I’m definitely trying to shed that skin and be reborn.” (Via W Magazine)
