Despite the fact that his Starboy LP isn’t set to drop till later this week, The Weeknd found himself nominated for a pair of awards at Sunday’s AMAs. He was up for both Favorite Male Artist (Pop/Rock) and Favorite Male Artist (Soul/R&B) (because what are genres anymore?). Abel Tesfaye showed why he deserved those accolades with a rendition of the album’s title track live on the AMAs stage. Watch the replay below.
