The Weeknd’s fourth studio album ‘After Hours’ was released on March 20 and it ‘s one of the XO artist’s most successful projects of his career as it’s already platinum. It’s led by the singles “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless.” Heartless has been the No. 1 song in the country before Drake’s “Toosie Slide” took over this week. Heartless still stands at No. 2 though.
After Hours continues to build plenty of momentum since its release as it’s the top album in the country on the Billboard 200 chart for the fourth consecutive week. According to Chart Data, this is the first album to reach this accomplishment since Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ in 2018. Among other fan favorites on After Hours are “Escape From LA” and “Until I Bleed Out.” The deluxe edition featuring the songs “Nothing Compares,” “Missed You,” and “Final Lullaby.”
The Weeknd’s After Hours Tour was set to kick off this summer as well but there’s a good chance that it may get postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and large gatherings are still discouraged in many states. It was originally scheduled to kick off on June 11 in Vancouver, Canada, though. It is set to run all the way through November 13 as it would conclude in Paris, France.
