Overall, The Weeknd remains one of the most popular artists in the entire world. Although his acting chops may be brought into question as of late, there is no doubt that he is still a great singer. Abel is currently starring alongside Lily-Rose Depp on The Idol. This shoe is filled with sex, drugs, fame, and any other vice you can think of. So far, the reviews have not been great, however, the artist clearly still enjoys the work he did. That also extends to the soundtrack, which he worked on extensively.
Earlier today, we even reported on how Abel promised fans that there would be new music from the soundtrack coming every single week. Initially, the soundtrack would only be released at the end of the season. However, he has since gone back on that. Now, fans can expect some dope songs, even if they don't care that much for the show. As for what kind of music fans can expect, that remains to be seen.
