Toronto’s very own The Weeknd is now officially a signed artist under Universal Republic. In a joint venture deal between XO and Universal Republic, the Weeknd and his crew now have a major platform to expand in the world of music.
The joint venture between Republic Records and the Canada-based XO sees the Weeknd’s vision preserved and magnified on a much larger scale.
The XO initiative has grown from a small collective — with roots based in the metropolitan streets of Toronto — to a marquee business partner, and it will only evolve further within this structure. – The Weeknd XO
In addition, The Weeknd trilogy of House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echos of Silence will receive a remastered release featuring unreleased singles, and other new material on November 13th.
