The Weeknd says his next album may be his “last hurrah“… but only as The Weeknd.

The guy behind the character will probably continue making music under another name.  Possibly even his REAL name, Abel Tesfaye.

He says, quote, “I’m going through a cathartic path right now … [I] want to kill The Weeknd.  And I will.  Eventually … As The Weeknd, I’ve said everything I can say.”
