The Weeknd Finished ‘Upbeat’ Album Before Selena Gomez Split

The Weeknd took it pretty hard when Selena Gomez broke up with him to go back to Justin Bieber.

It affected him so much that he started from scratch to create My Dear Melancholy in lieu of an already completed album. In his cover profile in TIME, the Weeknd admitted:

“Prior to ‘Melancholy,’ I had a whole album written, done, which wasn’t melancholy at all because it was a different time in my life. It was very upbeat—it was beautiful.”

The “Call Out My Name” singer wanted his current project to be healing and convey his authentic self. “I don’t want to perform something that I don’t feel,” he continued.

Unfortunately, it sounds like fans won’t be able to hear the scrapped album. He confirmed that the project will “never” release.
