Hello everyone! I want to apologize for the lack of updates regarding The Weeknd here on TheWeekndOnline.com – First; I have been on vacation. I was not able to give any notice about my absence. I will be heading to yet another small vacation; however, will have my laptop and WiFi connection therefore; I will be updating the site with tons of images of The Weeknd over the past few weeks. As we all know already The Weeknd has announced his next album release, August 28, 2015 – “Beauty Behind The Madness.” I will have an exciting new look for the website soon and will also include more fan interaction for everyone. I appreciate your understanding and can not wait to get back to TheWeekndOnline.com!
On May 7, 2015 The Weeknd, who’s hit single “Earned It” recently hit #1 top 40 in USA. The Weeknd would then go to New York to perform on NBC’s Today Show to perform his Fifty Shades Of Grey contribution “Earned It.” High quality photos (© Brent N.

What a week for The Weeknd’s “Earned It!”
In addition to reaching a new peak of #5 on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot 100, the “50 Shades of Grey” single also charges past the one million sales mark.
“Earned It” was credited with approximately 107,000 sales during the most recent tracking week. When combined with the 950,584 Nielsen says it had sold prior, the weekly tally boosts the song’s cumulative mark to approximately 1.058 million.
A multi-faceted smash, “Earned It” ranks at #6 on the weekly Digital Songs (thanks to it 107,000 sales), Streaming Songs (8.9 million US streams) and Radio Songs (86 million all-format impressions) subcharts. The metrics combine to give “Earned It” enough chart points for the #5 position on the overall Hot 100.
It is The Weeknd’s first Top 5 hit — and his first Top 10 hit as a solo artist.
His previous career peak came courtesy the Ariana Grande duet “Love Me Harder,” which peaked at #7. His highest-charting solo release was “Wicked Games,” which went as high as #53.
The Weeknd is scheduled to hit the stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night (March 19, 2015) on ABC TV Network at 11:35pm. With Bill Murray as special guest and the cast of ‘The Walking Dead.’ Make sure to check back here for later coverage of the Jimmy Kimmel appearance.
