After making history Monday as “Blinding Lights” set the all-time record for most weeks spent on the Billboard Hot 100, a total of 88, The Weeknd celebrated Wednesday by debuting one of his early music projects on streaming services.

The three-time Grammy winner released his second mixtape, 2011’s Thursday, in honor of its 10th anniversary. The nine-song project features his longtime friend Drake on the only single, “The Zone.” That same year, they also collaborated on five tracks on Drake’s RIAA-certified six-times Platinum 2011 Take Care album, including the single “Crew Love,” co-written by The Weeknd.

As previously reported, the 31-year-old singer is featured on Kanye West’s upcoming DONDA album, and “Save Your Tears” is up for Video of the Year at the MTV VMAs, happening September 12 in New York City.
