The Weeknd’s “Earned It” helped the singer become a star. The Weeknd revealed how the song typified his music. Subsequently, he revealed how the song gave him self-confidence.

The Weeknd said 1 of his albums was ‘rushed’ even though he was proud of it

According to a 2015 interview with Time, The Weeknd doesn’t like all of his songs. “I just felt like I was selling myself short,” he said. “The last album [2013’s Kiss Land] was rushed. Even though I’m proud of it, I didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted, but it was a great learning experience.”

The Weeknd felt his next album, Beauty Behind the Madness, was a different story. “I took my time with my new album,” he revealed. “I learned, I studied and I delivered. I want the world to hear my music and see the movement my fans and I have created.”

The Weeknd said “Earned It” was a milestone in his career. “I was arousing people’s curiosity,” he said. “I think the game is changing with songs like ‘Earned It’ as opposed to it changing me because ‘Earned It’ was very important. It was slow, it was sexy and it was smooth — all traits in my music.”

The Weeknd went on to work with Max Martin, who is known for creating hit songs for Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys, Taylor Swift, Adele, and many other singers. The “Starboy” singer didn’t initially gel with Martin, but they subsequently formed a strong working relationship. Martin went on to make songs with The Weeknd such as “Save Your Tears” and “Blinding Lights.”
