“Forever grateful to be able to experiment with sounds, try new things with my voice, and create music with the people I truly love and respect,” The Weeknd posted on Instagram. “For the last decade, every song has been a journey, and to be able to continue this journey has been nothing short of a blessing. It’s the only gift I could ever ask for. I’ll be doing it for as long as I can breathe. I love my fans and wouldn’t be here without you. Big day for blinding lights. Multiple songs in the top 20. Thursday turns 10. Caesar turned 4 and the f*cking dawn is coming. LET’S GO.”
