Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, was named the most popular musician in the world by Guinness World Records on March 20, 2023, with the organization claiming that “no one else comes close.”
The Weeknd became the first artist on Spotify to achieve 100 million monthly listeners (112 million as of March 24, 2023), a record he solely controls, with Miley Cyrus a distant second at 83 million monthly listeners.
The Weeknd also has the most played song on Spotify, with his popular tune ‘Blinding Lights,’ published in November 2019, holding the record with 3.4 billion listens.
The 33-year-old popstar has achieved worldwide digital success, with his smash tune ‘Die For You,’ starring Ariana Grande, going viral on Tik Tok.
After boycotting the Grammys for failing to nominate his album ‘After Hours,’ the award-winning singer named the “King of streaming” by Guinness World Records hosted Superbowl 55 in 2021.
