The Weeknd is gearing up for a big week, and he kicked it off at Billboard’s inaugural Hot 100 Festival at Jones Beach on Long Island.
After Beauty Behind The Madness leaked on Friday, The Weeknd released his own 18-minute preview of his sophomore LP. To further promote the new album, the Toronto crooner performed album cuts like “Prisoner” featuring Lana Del Rey, “The Hills,” and his mega hit “Earned It.”
During his set, The Weeknd decided to switch it up a bit by covering Beyonce’s 2014 smash “Drunk In Love.” Of course, the lyrics are a little different to match his lifestyle, but the bones of the song are still the same.
Beauty Behind The Madness officially drops on iTunes August 28. Watch The Weeknd’s cover up top.
