Obama asked a bunch of celebrities to make videos for the class of 2020. Beyoncé was another one I believe
“Only losers go to school”
-The Weeknd, 2015
He taught himself how to move
He's not the type to count on you
He looks like he’s being held at gunpoint
Well he’s definitely reading a teleprompter, so same thing lmao
blink twice if you need help
No lie, his voice is calming as hell lol
He seems like such a lovely person
No seriously lol. I watched the video of one of his dancers taking a pic with him and he’s just so down to earth and so chill. I would love to meet him
Only…winners go to school?
losers go to school, winners go to college
What was this video made for lol like where did it come from
It was a bunch of celebrities congratulating the class of 2020 on a remote grad stream (bc of og Covid). I think Michelle Obama led and/or organized it!
Because getting a higher education is important
Exactly why he quit school
Trust me dude im 16 and give me the weeknd's talent and ill quit school right now.Literally 1% people may have a talent that will make them millions others end up in mcdonalds
Also if I gave you Abel's talent and you weren't anywhere as hardworking as he is, and you didn't know the people he knows you wouldn't do shit I promise you. Having the right people around you matters, being born in western countries matters as well. Like, for example if he was born with his talent x 10 but in North Korea, Iraq, Bangladesh or any 3rd world african country he ain't making it.
Even then, a lot talented and hardworking people just don’t make it. Those set you up for success, but luck and chance is the final step. If Abel was born 10 years earlier, the world wouldn’t have been ready for his genre, for example. Or who knows, in a parallel universe maybe he doesn’t meet the same people who helped him launch the mixtapes. Not to discredit him at all, but js luck is a part of it too.
for real. i didnt finish college and i could make 60k+ knowing the right person that likes me and can refer me to a job as long as i show up all time and do my job. may not be an amazing job but you get paid good.
just because you’re talented doesn’t mean you’ll make it. Abel literally was homeless during the making of HOB. in snowchild, he literally says if he didn’t make it, he’d “make his wrists bleed”. So it isn’t that simple.
Besides you're not just talented or not talented from a start, it takes a lot of vision and effort. He could quit school but he was always sure he wanted to quit school
I understand lol. I'm a student in university myself. I understand how school and the world we live in work. I'm just saying it's not about education it's more about meeting people with same interests and proving that you're a hard worker by studying hard for marks. I'm studying for programmer and the stuff I was supposed to learn for 4 years in university I learned in 5 weeks in work.
The sad part of today is, even if you had Abel's talent, the chance to get noticed today would be slim to none though
Getting a higher education is important for those of us who are not international superstars
Getting higher is important
shhh some people can't handle that knowledge
Education itself isn't important. It's about meeting people with same interests as you and also proving to employers that you're willing to put hours in to get a job done
That's a cynical view of it and only tells half the story
Only losers go to school 🎶
exactly what it says on the tin really isnt it lol
Im dead omg I’ve never seen this and your caption some how made it 10x funnier . I can’t take it so serious because he dropped out of highschool 😭 also I was class of 2020 lmao
Money and I bet its hard to say no to Michelle Obama.
Money was the motive
“Only losers go to school” - Abel Makkonen tesfaye
the smile at the end 💀💀
He did it for himself.
He liked it.
He was good at it.
this looks like a deepfake, even tho it isn't lmao
“Says the high school dropout!!”
I guess that someone said: Only losers go to school 💀
Looks like deepfake tbh, but
We already know what Carti subreddit opinion on this. but it’s time we ask the same question from r/TheWeeknd
I thought for a second after sayin how “school is important” it was gonna turn into a skit/laugh 😆
This can’t be first take.
sure would be a lot cooler if it did
Should I miss class to attend his concert tho?
thought this was deepfake at first lmao
Don't be a millionaire dropout like me and stay in school kids.
Who cares I get to listen to his buttery speaking voice
Proceeds to play Losers
Thank you Abel
he explains it in the video

Because getting a higher education is important to some it's not that hard to decode why he made the video 😂😂
Because he never went there 💀💀
because not no one can sing like abel
I've been watching this on repeat for idk how long
This is so ironic 💀
Says the man who once said "Only losers go to school"
"Last week I paid a visit to the institute, they got the dropout keeping kids in the school." --Kanye West
bruh thats not his actual thoughts on that shit lmao
Because he got paid for it? xD
says the guy who droped out of school
He got payed
> He got *paid*
Although *payed* exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in:
* Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. *The deck is yet to be payed.*
* *Payed out* when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. *The rope is payed out! You can pull now.*
Unfortunately, I was unable to find nautical or rope-related words in your comment.
