The Weeknd, an award-winning performer and R&B singer, is making the headlines. Under his belt, he has hits such as Starboy, Heartless, The Hills, and Can’t Feel My Face. However, it’s not because of a new hit, but because of his new $25 million penthouse.
Abel MakkonenTesfaye, more popularly known as The Weeknd, first became popular in 2011 with his House of Balloons mixtape. The mixtape was originally released as one of the mixtapes he published anonymously to YouTube. He released the mixtapes Echoes of Silence, Thursday, and of course, House of Balloons, which were remastered and released again in 2012, in an album Trilogy.
He then began working with powerhouses such as Wiz Khalifa and Drake. However, what propelled him to international stardom was his award-winning album, Beauty Behind the Madness. The next year, he released another award-winning album, Starboy.
He is a Canadian record producer, songwriter, and singer. The Weeknd has sold more than 70 million records all over the world, and has accumulated plenty of awards in the process. He has won 2 American Music Awards, 3 Grammy Awards, 8 Billboard Music Awards, and 9 Juno Awards. The Weeknd has also been nominated for an Academy Award.
The Weeknd has had one No.2 release, Kiss Land, and 3 No.1 releases, My Dear Melancholy, Starboy, and Beauty Behind the Madness. Out of all his songs, he has had 1 top-1 and 9 top-10 entries on the Billboard Hot 100. He is the first performer to simultaneously have the top 3 positions on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs in 2015.
The work of The Weeknd has often been deemed as Alternative R&B. In the United States alone, he has sold more than 53 million singles - and, as of now, it seems that he won’t be stopping anytime soon.
With all the success that The Weeknd has been enjoying lately, it won’t be surprising if he’s going to enjoy the high life. The Canadian performer has recently splurged out $25 million for a penthouse in Beverly Hills.
His penthouse is at an exclusive high-rise building, and is on the top floor. In fact, his penthouse takes up the whole floor! The bachelor pad is 8,215 ft. in size, and boasts pure luxury in every corner. With the ceiling-to-floor windows, he can enjoy views of the ocean, the city, and Beverly Hills.
The Starboy hitmaker will be able to enjoy living in style, with spacious bathrooms and with 4 bedrooms. His pad also comes with an artistic interior that greatly reflects his creativity. The place is perfect for him to host parties, or maybe take home a date. This penthouse can be greatly enjoyed by a single guy like The Weeknd, who recently split with Bella Hadid.
It also features a wide living room, that comes with a wraparound sofa. The living room also has a huge entertainment system, which he can enjoy while listening to one of his hits. He can impress a girl or two in the kitchen that’s custom designed by Antonio Citterio, an Italian architect. It also has a wet bar and a massive island in the center. And if he has a hangover the morning after, he can enjoy a cup of hot coffee at the espresso bar.
The Weeknd is an impressive-looking guy, and it’s important that he stay in shape. Well, he can easily do that in the gym that comes with his penthouse. Aside from that, he can also enjoy the view from one of his four balconies. Plus, every room is screaming red and blue, with matching artworks!
