30-year-old Grammy Award winner The Weeknd is now about to drop his fourth studio album, “After Hours.” With the singles, “Heartless” and “Blinding Light” already receiving airplay in anticipation of the March 20th release. In an interview, the Weeknd was asked if drugs still play a role in his creative process. He responded, “I have an off-and-on relationship with it.“It doesn’t consume my life but occasionally helps me open up my mind, especially when I’m creating, but when I perform I’m completely sober and try not to even drink. I’ve learned to balance thanks to touring.” He removed the term “xo” from his social media handles, which some alleged was a reference to “ecstasy” and “oxycodone” and even branched into acting by starring in the Safdie Brothers’ film, “Uncut Gems.”
