The Weeknd Celebrates ‘Thursday’ 5 Year Anniversary with Limited Edition Capsule Collection
It's been five years since The Weeknd dropped his celebrated 2011 mixtape, Thursday, and to honor the date, he's released a limited edition capsule collection.
The rare collection includes a t-shirt featuring the mixtape's cover art, a long sleeve shirt and a New Era snapback. This isn't the first time the singer has commemorated one of his projects with merchandise—he similarly honored House of Balloons' five year anniversary with a a special collection that included two black and white long sleeve t-shirts, a choice of two New Era snapbacks featuring his XO logo or the mixtape cover.
Fans should be happy to find that the singer is celebrating the five year mark, they were pressuring him to do so on Twitter, wanting him to pay tribute to his mixtape and recognize the importance of the date. Basically, today isn't all about Frank Ocean.
"If frank ocean can drop the album you can tweet about thursday," one fan tweeted.
Beyond today, The Weeknd has been in a very charitable mood as of late. The Grammy-winning crooner reportedly donated $250,000 to the Black Lives Matter Network last week, and that donation follows the singer’s recent donation of $50,000 to the University of Toronto to help fund a new Ethiopic Studies program.
