He’s gon’ and made it come true, y’all. Canadian R&B superstar and our homeboy The Weeknd is finally making his Asian debut at the end of this year, with stops in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Bangkok Seoul, Manila, Bali, Taipei and of course, Singapore (Dec 5).
The Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter has been busy of late. After his very public statement about his disappointment with H&M, which led to him cutting ties and boycotting them, he released his previously announced collection with BAPE. Also, just last week, he tweeted how he “definitely wanna [sic] tour Asia” after posting a screen shot of how the BAPE x XO collection was doing in Japan. He also followed up with another tweet, saying: “Actually, an Asia tour is long overdue. Still can’t believe I haven’t done it yet.” Yes, Abel Tesfaye, how could you have forgotten us all these years? Fret not, Starboy singer came through and he’ll be before the year ends.
