The mystery surrounding The Weeknd is starting to dissipate. He’s still mysterious, but he’s gone from a complete question mark to a human being who has shadows and footprints. Oh, and a name. He has a name, and his name is Robert Paulson Abel Tesfaye. Before he was called The Weeknd, Tesfaye was part of a production team called The Noise. These tracks are from those days.
