Fresh off the release of his sophomore The Weekend unleashes the dark and ominous hit single for his Weeknd collaboration “All I Know“.
The Weeknd camp out in a bunker with the XO crew Kanye West, Quavo, Big Sean and The Dream to create the wondrous melody. Some have claimed that XO simply stands for hugs and kisses, while others argue the letters represent the drugs ecstasy and oxycontin.
The singer and songwriter made his early-2010s breakthrough with morose ballads that seemed to have no designs on mainstream appeal.
After The Weeknd signed with the Universal Republic, the three Weeknd mixtapes were remastered and bundled with three new songs for Trilogy, issued in November 2012. Despite consisting of material previously available for free, the set debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 chart.
The following April, Tesfaye won Juno Awards in the categories of Breakthrough Artist of the Year and R&B/Soul Recording of the Year. Trilogy was certified platinum by the RIAA the next month.
