The Weeknd


When The Weeknd emerged onto the internet in 2011, no one knew what he looked like, but everyone was sure he was destined for stardom. Fast forward a few years and he’s become a Billboard chart topper and record shattering force in contemporary Pop and R&B music. In 2016, the Canadian superstar teamed up with fast fashion giant H&M to release his own XO branded clothing. The partnership ended in 2018 when The Weeknd severed ties with H&M following a racially offensive incident. Since then, he’s stuck to releasing merch via his own website. The T-shirts and hoodies released alongside his After Hours album are particularly popular.
