songwriters: Ahmad Balshe, Abel Tesfaye, Stephan Moccio,
Jason Qhenneville

performed by: The Weeknd

date released: 2015 by The Weeknd for the soundtrack of
Fifty Shades of Grey

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye was born on 16 February 1990, in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and raised in Scarborough,and is
an only child. He is of Ethiopian descent. His parents,
Makkonen and Samra, emigrated from Ethiopia in the 1980s.

Since Tesfaye's father was never around when he was
growing up, and his mother was constantly working, his
grandmother took care of him most of his young life. Because
of this, Tesfaye speaks fluent Amharic; it was the first
language he learned. His grandmother would take him to
services at their Ethiopian Orthodox church.

Tesfaye says he adopted the stage name The Weeknd after
dropping out of high school at the age of 17 and, along with a
fellow crew-member, "left one weekend and never came
home". The spelling was modified to avoid trademark issues
with a Canadian band already named The Weekend
