The Weeknd has been relatively silent ever since the release of his third studio album Starboy in 2016, with the exception of My Dear Melancholy, which was an extended play (EP) dropped in 2018. As a result, the expectations for his next project were high, and the pressure was on. After Hours, released on March 20, 2020, is The Weeknd’s fourth studio album and was a huge success. The album didn’t collaborate with other artists but still managed to become a beautiful mesh of self-loathing, ’80s and psychedelics. The Weeknd’s fans appreciated this album greatly as it broke the record for the most global pre-adds in Apple Music history with 1.02 million users. With songs like Save Your Tears and Scared to Live that go through a mirage of emotions, such as cheerful to sad in a span of seconds, After Hours was a tremendous success and is a must-listen for all.
