The Weeknd has a very unique way of spelling his name and there are probably many people misspelling his stage name as The Weekend right now!

The 30-year-old singer has a good explanation of why he had to drop that last “e” from his name.

The Weeknd opened up to fans during a Reddit AMA back in 2013 and explained how he choose his stage name, as well as why he spells it that way.

“I left home when I was about 17 dropped out of high school and convinced Lamar to do the same lol. We grabbed our mattresses from our parents threw it in our friends shitty van and left one weekend and never came back home. It was gonna be the title of HOB. I hated my name at the time though so I tried it as a stage name. It sounded cool,” The Weeknd said about how he chose his name.

He added, “I took out the ‘e’ because there was already a canadian band named the weekend (copyright issues).”
