Watch: The Weeknd Performs ‘Blinding Lights’ & More for ABC’s ‘Time 100’ Special

Published: Thursday 24th Sep 2020 by Rashad

Among the prestigious list of luminaries, world leaders, scientists, artists, and icons featured in TIME magazine’s recently ‘100 Most Influential People of the Year’ list is Abel Tesfaye – better known to his fans as The Weeknd.

While a number of other artists have seen their commercial relevance wane in light of the global health crisis, Tesfaye – a multi-GRAMMY award winning music superstar nearly a decade into his career – may be experiencing his best year yet thanks to the megahit, ‘Blinding Lights,’ and its blockbuster parent album, ‘After Hours.’

In addition to earning his own cover of TIME for his domination of the music realm, the 30-year-old also showcased tunes from the top-selling LP by rendering live renditions of ‘Lights’ and ‘In Your Eyes’ for the mag’s accompanying ABC TV special.
