Waiting for The Weeknd: R&B Star Will Drop New Album, “Dawn FM,” This Friday with Eclectic Guest Stars


The Weeknd is starting off 2022 with a new album.

Abel Tesfaye is dropping “Dawn FM” this Friday, his first new album since his mega hit “After Hours.” The new album has an eclectic group of guest stars including Quincy Jones, Jim Carrey, and Tyler the Creator.

No word yet on a track list, etc or even a lead track. But “Dawn FM” will put an end to Adele’s run at number 1 for good. And it’s a welcome surprise to start the new year. We need more previously unknown releases!
