Editors' Notes In 2020, the rulers of pop’s wide world included many of the usual suspects—from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande to Drake and DaBaby—alongside rising stars like Megan Thee Stallion, Doja Cat and 24kGoldn. Even in such revered company, it was The Weeknd whose presence felt particularly inescapable on the heels of After Hours. The album, his fourth, yielded four singles, including an absolute smash in “Blinding Lights”, which ruled charts around the world for weeks on end. Collaborations with Maluma, Calvin Harris and the late Juice WRLD also helped keep The Weeknd’s name on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Revisit his standout year as well as the biggest singles from his many chart-topping peers.
