The Weeknd came into the spotlight in 2011 when he released three nine-track mixtapes: House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence. Then in 2012, he released a compilation album, Trilogy, which was made up of remastered songs from the mixtapes. 2013 was a good year for the Weeknd, as his album Trilogy won the Juno Award for R&B/Soul Recording of the year and he won for Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Later in 2013, The Weeknd released his first studio album, Kiss Land.
