As if his music wasn’t enough for us to know how incredibly talented he is, The Weeknd is making sure that he gets to flaunt his creative side even more.

On the other hand, our beloved Canadian boy chose to spend big bucks out of his own pocket to make sure that the people have the ‘cinematic experience’ that they deserve while they’re stuck at home. According to his manager, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, Abel is about to spend $7M on his performance.
