The Weeknd, which has been out of the spotlight for the past few years following the huge success of 3 separate albums and an EP, has just released a brand new record that has exceeded expectations and put it back on the charts internationally. Coincidentally, The Weeknd was the last guest of Saturday Night Live on March 5, before it got underway, though no one was aware of what was going to happen at the moment. Fans who have seen his episode of SNL know that he shared the set with No Time To Die actor Daniel Craig, who was in the midst of promoting the latest James Bond movie. At the time, there was much more contact between crew members and co-workers, and rare mask-bearers or social distances, even when The Weeknd met Daniel. Allegedly, The Weeknd told a team member after they met: “I totally geeked Daniel Craig.” As mentioned above, The Weeknd has just released a new album, After Hours, which was its first attempt in the last three and a half years. The album was released on March 20, and it is viewed by critics and fans alike, although it was around the same time that the U.S. federal government and state governments began to take the coronavirus more seriously.The Weeknd With Daniel Craig And Totally ‘Geeked Out’ During SNL FilimingAccording to Variety, The Weeknd and its executives considered postponing the release of the record, similar to Lady Gaga and other artists, but they chose to continue with the release.
