In 2011, The Weeknd first broke into the music scene anonymously with his first mixtape 'House of Balloons' followed by his 2013 studio album 'Kiss Land' and the widely recognized 'Beauty Behind the Madness' that earned him two Grammy Awards in 2015, an RIAA triple-platinum certification for cumulative sales in excess of three million.

Adding to his unstoppable breakthroughs are his 16 RIAA certifications from tracks alone with 'The Hills' (7-time platinum), 'Can't Feel My Face' (5-time platinum), 'Often' (2-time platinum), 'In The Night' and 'Acquainted'. 'Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)' even garnered The Weeknd his first ever Academy Award nomination in the category of 'Best Original Song'.
