Anyway, The Weeknd is a big-time philanthropist. He’s given over $2 million to various causes just this summer. Most recently, he donated $300,000 to relief for the victims of that massive explosion in Lebanon. (Do you want to help them too? Click here for info.)
We play a ton of his music on Star 107-9 because you ask us to. (You know about our Like/Dislike thing…right?) We feel even better about that now.
