Following the release of his third album 'Starboy', we look back at the first three chapters of his life.
Tesfaye explained the origin of his stage name in a Reddit Q&A with fans: "I left home when I was about 17 dropped out of high school and convinced Lamar [XO crew member] to do the same lol. We grabbed our mattresses from our parents threw it in our friends s****y van and left one weekend and never came back home... I hated my name at the time though so I tried it as a stage name. It sounded cool. I took out the "e" because there was already a canadian band named the weekend."
