Los Angeles, CA

The Weeknd had to wait a few days to celebrate his 32nd birthday properly but on Saturday (February 19), he and a few of his famous close friends decided to bring Vegas to them.

Holding a casino theme night, the Canadian singer brought together a who’s who of stars to toast to him, including frequent collaborators Drake, Future and fellow Canadian Kaytranda. At one point, Drake held court and gave a toast to his “brother” who first came into the spotlight in 2011 with House of Balloons and “The Crew” from the 6 God’s Take Care album of the same year.

“I was there from day one,” Drake began. “And I’m grateful not only to be here with my brothers but grateful that family is back here together again, where we belong. From the greatest city in the world.”

The celebration for The Weeknd comes after he notched another Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart with Dawn FM. Executive produced by Quincy Jones, the album contains vocal appearances from Jim Carrey and guest features from Lil Wayne and Tyler, The Creator.

The Weeknd Becomes Spotify King With Monthly Listeners Record

Since 2020’s After Hours, The Weeknd has been on a torrid pace of resetting Billboard charts and streaming records. His “Blinding Lights” single not only became the biggest hit single in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, but it also became the second biggest song in the history of Spotify and became the fastest song to reach over two billion streams.
