隨著Frank Ocean、Miguel在2013年葛萊美獎提名名單上大放異彩,一種以融合時尚與前衛的節奏藍調為主軸,混搭電子樂、搖滾樂與嘻哈的新世紀時髦節奏藍調蔚為潮流,在加拿大多倫多出生的衣索比亞裔歌手The Weeknd也是其中的佼佼者,他在2012年歲末與唱片公司Republic Records結盟,首度將『House Of Balloons』、『Thursday』、『Echoes Of Silence』等混搭唱作集經過混音與母帶重製技術製作,重新彙整而成3CD大碟【Trilogy】,此套大碟發行首週空降全美節奏藍調/嘻哈專輯榜冠軍與流行專輯榜第4名,首支單曲"Wicked Games"晉升全美節奏藍調/嘻哈單曲榜第5名。The Weeknd同時入選英國BBC的「Sound Of 2013」名單。

本名Abel Tesfaye的The Weeknd自2010年12月起在YouTube網站發表唱作;2011年3月發行混搭作品集『House Of Balloons』,在經過嘻哈歌手Drake的推特拉抬下,『House Of Balloons』入選加拿大年度專輯大獎Polaris Music Prize的十強名單,同年7月,Drake邀請The Weeknd擔任演唱會暖場,The Weeknd隨後在8月與同年底發行另外兩張混音作品集『Thursday』、『Echoes Of Silence』。The Weeknd自2012年春季陸續在南加州都會區的Coachella音樂祭與紐約、洛杉磯、巴塞隆納、倫敦、巴黎等地開唱。The Weeknd的才華更贏得樂壇賞識,獲邀為Florence + The Machine的"Shake It Out"、Lady Gaga的"Marry The Night"等歌曲打造混音版。

The Weeknd令人心醉神迷的親密情感唱腔與柔美的假聲演唱技巧在YouTube網站掀起迷情風暴:"Wicked Games"吸睛2400萬人次,"High For This"吸睛1100萬人次,取樣節奏藍調女歌手Aaliyah暢銷曲"Rock The Boat"的"What You Need"吸睛800萬人次,而與Drake合作的單曲"The Zone"也在推出兩個月後累積380萬人次。專輯中還有賦予Michael Jackson經典名曲"Dirty Diana"動感時尚與性感魔力的"D.D."。
