List Rules
Studio albums and mixtapes only.

Who doesn't love The Weeknd?! Perhaps one of the greatest tenor vocalists of modern pop and R&B music, Grammy Award winning Canadian-American superstar Abel Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd) constantly shatters glass ceilings with ever-trending hit singles and powerful songwriting. Because his discography speaks for itself, we're gonna rank his top studio albums and mixtapes of all time from best to worst. To make it easy for you, we haven't included any singles, EPs, or compilations -- only studio albums. If you think that the greatest album by The Weeknd isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it, so that it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; and if you have a favorite The Weeknd full-length record, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
