What is the Snowchild?
After Hours is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer The Weeknd. The album was released on March 20, 2020, by XO and Republic Records. The album was produced primarily by The Weeknd, along with a variety of high-profile producers such as DaHeala, Illangelo, Max Martin and Metro Boomin, all of whom The Weeknd had worked with previously. The standard edition has no features, although the remixes edition contains guest appearances from Chromatics and Lil Uzi Vert. Prior to the album's release, The Weeknd confirmed After Hours would face stylistic differences to his previous album Starboy (2016). Music journalists have noted the album as an artistic reinvention for The Weeknd, with the introduction of new wave and dream pop influences, while thematically, After Hours explores promiscuity, overindulgence, and self-loathing. The album was also subject of widespread media anticipation leading up to its release. The artwork and aesthetic for the album's promotional material has been described as psychedelic and being inspired by various films, such as: Casino (1995), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), and Joker and Uncut Gems (both 2019). The album was supported by three singles: "Heartless", "Blinding Lights", and "In Your Eyes", with "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights" peaking at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and receiving platinum certification. Its title track was released as a promotional single. In March 2020, After Hours broke the record for the most global pre-adds in Apple Music history, with over 1.02 million users. After Hours received widely positive reviews from critics, with some praising the album as The Weeknd's best piece of work. It debuted atop the US Billboard 200, earning 444,000 album-equivalent units of which 275,000 were in pure sales, marking the biggest first week sales of 2020 for an album. The album was The Weeknd's fourth number-one album and stayed atop the Billboard 200 for four consecutive weeks. It also reached number one in 20 other countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom. After Hours will be promoted with the After Hours Tour, which is set to span North America and Europe...
