The Weeknd has made an incredible $92 million from the success of his third album, which included sales from touring, merchandise, and, of course, the songs lifted from the record. Do you want to know how he spends his fortune?
Abel Tesfaye, more popularly known as The Weeknd, is a Canadian born rapper who has turned a decision to drop out of high school (that decision was made on a weekend, hence the stage name of The Weeknd) into a million dollar music career.
The estimates of his net worth is $92 million. The higher figure is to be believed because Abel is multitalented, having performance skills as a singer, record producer, songwriter, and recording artist.
He has 2 Grammy awards to his credit, making him a marketable commodity. This statement is proven by his Oscar nomination for his musical composition “Earned It” in the movie “50 Shades of Grey.”
Mercedes-AMG G63: $150,000
In terms of comfort and utility, The Weeknd, also has a Mercedes-AMG G63. This $150,000 luxury SUV is powerful and luxurious, but not very fast since it is an SUV.
Bentley Mulsanne: $300,000
The Weeknd also briefly mentions the Mulsanne and it also shows up briefly in the ‘Starboy’ video. That said, this $300,000 car, while it’s big and fancy, isn’t as fast or as powerful as the Aventador. It’s a luxury car first and foremost, so its power doesn’t really matter as much as its comfort does.
Aventador SV Roadster: $500,000
He does indeed own and drive an Aventador. The Aventador that he sings about was an SV Roadster, which is worth over $500,000. The Aventador also shows up briefly in the ‘Starboy’ video, and it was also likely brand-new since the SV Roadster was only built in 2016.
This Aventador SV Roadster had a 6.5-liter V12 engine which generated 750-hp. The main difference between the SV Roadster and the regular Aventador Roadster is the fact that it’s about 100-pounds lighter and thus, slightly faster than usual.
L.A Mansion: $21 million
The Weeknd has snapped up one of the priciest condos ever sold in Los Angeles for $21 million, a source confirmed. The expansive four-bedroom penthouse, encased in floor-to-ceiling glass windows, spans the entire 18th floor of the boutique new development Beverly West, a 22-story tower with 35 units that abuts the Los Angeles Country Club.
