The Weeknd
When R&B singer Abel Tesfaye released his debut mixtape, House of Balloons, in 2011, he did so hidden behind the Weeknd moniker: faceless and nameless, with no pictures, concerts or interviews. Since then, he's made the leap from mystery-cloaked DIY buzz magnet to pro-hyped superstar, and deservedly so—the new album, Beauty Behind the Madness, revitalizes Tesfaye's drugged out psychosexual fantasy with '80s funk basslines and a glossy pop shimmer. With four huge nights at three massive stadiums, you have no excuse to miss the Toronto singer-producer pushing R&B to ever lusher, edgier extremes.
