Is The Weeknd Releasing His Album on Friday?
On Saturday (March 24), The Weeknd teased fans with Instagram posts that seemed to indicate a new album was in its final stages. On Tuesday, (March 27) he got the Internet even more riled up with another enigmatic post that hints the record may be dropping this Friday.
The new piece of evidence is a screenshot of a text conversation, with the cryptic message "Should we drop Friday? I'm indifferent to be honest."
Naturally, fans of the "I Feel It Coming" singer are freaking out at the prospect of hearing new music in a mere three days, and some are questioning who "La Mar" could be, hoping it's Kendrick.
It's only been a little over a year since Starboy was released, but clearly fans are jonesing for some new music. The Weeknd previously discussed working on a new album during a 2016 interview with Billboard. “After this album’s done we’ll be working," he said. "I have ideas and songs that I want to get out of my head.”
Will we be getting a new album from the "I Can't Feel My Face" singer later this week, and is Kendrick Lamar involved? We'll find out in a few short days.
