2015 has seen The Weeknd transform from blogstar and hipster favourite to a one of the word's biggest popstars.
His standout track from the 50 Shades soundtrack, "Earned It", was a MASSIVE hit, and follow-ups "I Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills" have been playing tag at the top of the Billboard chart for a couple of weeks now. Not to mention the singer's new album Beauty Behind The Madness is completely brilliant.
Basically, 2015 has pretty much been owned by The Weeknd. However, his reign isn't over as Abel has been all over the place s-l-a-y-i-n-g performances left, right and centre (seriously, his performance at the VMAs was EVERYTHING), and his latest is totally the best so far.
Dropping into UK-based radio station Capital FM, The Weeknd performed four songs from his latest album:
