The Weeknd Ties Michael Jackson's Billboard Hot 100 Record

The Weeknd has officially tied a record set by Michael Jackson on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to reports, both artists are now the only male soloists in history to achieve several No. 1s from three different albums. The late King of Pop nabbed multiple No. 1 entries from 1979’s Off The Wall, 1982’s Thriller and 1987’s Bad, while the XO Records founder did the same thing from 2015’s Beauty Behind The Madness, 2016’s Starboy and 2020’s After Hours.

The news arrives shortly after The Weeknd and Ariana Grande‘s “Die For You (Remix)” jumped from No. 6 to No. 1 on this week’s Hot 100 chart. The new version of the Starboy track gave The Weeknd and Grande their seventh No. 1 each and their second chart-topper together, following their remix of “Save Your Tears” in 2021.

Elsewhere in music, Jisoo of BLACKPINK has unveiled her debut solo album title.
