What Made The Weeknd Famous?
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, got his start on YouTube. Under the username xoxxxoooxo, he uploaded three songs to YouTube on February 24, 2011. Surprisingly, “What You Need” was named “Best New Track” by Pitchfork two weeks later.
The Weeknd was still a mystery at the time, but the Pitchfork review was enough to get people talking.
According to Business Insider, “If you haven’t heard much about The Weeknd, it’s because there isn’t much information out there about them — that is, if the enigmatic project…is a ‘them’ and not just a ‘him’ or ‘she.'”
He later released his first mixtape, “House of Balloons,” which drew the attention of Drake, a fellow Canadian rapper. The Weeknd’s fame was cemented after Drake posted the download link.
“The buzz engine fired up as soon as the spooky R&B tracks from a free mixtape began to circulate,” Pitchfork said of the release. “There was Drake’s endorsement, album art that looked like Spiritualized crossed with Tumblr art-porn, a missing vowel, stylish samples, and the project’s creators hiding in the shadows.” You can’t purchase this kind of buzz…”
