Both his recent singles came out in November and were the first new material since his surprise 2018 EP ‘My Dear Melancholy’.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that The Weeknd wasn’t originally intended to star in Uncut Gems as a pop star who gets into a fight with protagonist Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler).

In a video interview with NME, Josh and Benny Safdie ran through the other artists they were considering for the role before they established an “awesome” friendship with the Canadian singer and changed tack.

Despite not being first choice, Uncut Gems star Adam Sandler hailed working with The Weekend on the Netflix movie.
