Rumor has it that The Weeknd may be dropping a new album on Friday. The XO singer recently posted a cryptic message on Instagram that has many fans thinking a new album is coming this week.
The Canadian singer posted a screenshot of a conversation with a person named La Mar. In the conversation, The Weeknd asks “Should we drop Friday? I’m indifferent to be honest.” While we never get La Mar's answer, fans are expecting some release or big news is coming this Friday (March 30).
Billboard has reportedly confirmed that the release is new music, although it’s unclear whether it will be a single or an full-length studio project. “This project is Abel taking it back to his roots. House of Balloons vibes,” the source told Billboard.
The latest development comes shortly after The Weeknd was reportedly spotted in California shooting what appeared to be a music video for an upcoming single. The artist also dropped new details regarding his upcoming Marvel comic series based on his last studio album, Starboy.
In addition to his forthcoming projects, The Weeknd is expected to take the stage as the headlining act at Coachella 2018.
