Late yesterday evening, The Weeknd (aka Abęl Tesfaye) released the first taster of his new album ‘Starboy’ by releasing its title track – a collaboration with Daft Punk. Accompanying that release was the reveal of his very strong album cover, which you can see below.
Notice anything different about the R&B star? Well, the internet certainly did…
Yep. He’s had a haircut.
Frankly, people are having a hard time accepting the new look.
Some suggested that 2016 – the year where no-one is allowed to be happy – was to blame.
But others were well on board with the new style.
Tesfaye previously said that any major hair changes would be for purely functional reasons. “I’ll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now. But if I cut it, I’d look like everyone else. And that’s just so boring to me.” Clearly he’s had a change of heart. Deal with it, people of the internet!
