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


getshcwifpty

He taught himself how to move


_aconite_cj_

He's not the type to count on you


boooleemik

He looks like he’s being held at gunpoint


officialtwiggz

Well he’s definitely reading a teleprompter, so same thing lmao


Infinite_Isopod5303

blink twice if you need help


KiingKayy

No lie, his voice is calming as hell lol


Little_Advances4761

He seems like such a lovely person


KiingKayy

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


MemeLord563

Only…winners go to school?


lazynbroke

losers go to school, winners go to college


Proof_Ambassador_844

What was this video made for lol like where did it come from


ovaltinequeeeen

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!


cayuts21

Because getting a higher education is important


Ineffable_21

Exactly why he quit school


RepulsiveRisk5090

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


Ineffable_21

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.


JustinianIV

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.


blackstonebilly

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.


Pride_Lion

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.


aysgamer

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


Ineffable_21

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.


Patoki

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


cayuts21

Getting a higher education is important for those of us who are not international superstars


zuss33

Getting higher is important


PumaREM

shhh some people can't handle that knowledge


Ineffable_21

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


bluehoag

That's a cynical view of it and only tells half the story


Moderator56

Only losers go to school 🎶


Mr_Zeldion

exactly what it says on the tin really isnt it lol


Yulixv

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


DELUSIONAL_COCK_FAN

money


KIVHT

Money and I bet its hard to say no to Michelle Obama.


STARBOY_100

Money was the motive

He did it for himself. He liked it. He was good at it.


twitchsad

this looks like a deepfake, even tho it isn't lmao


Kickaxx_007

“Says the high school dropout!!”


[deleted]

I guess that someone said: Only losers go to school 💀


ivanalejandrogp

Looks like deepfake tbh, but


Chasith

We already know what Carti subreddit opinion on this. but it’s time we ask the same question from r/TheWeeknd Have fun!


BLVCK_DAYS

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.


Infinite_Isopod5303

sure would be a lot cooler if it did


kaielysse

Should I miss class to attend his concert tho?


har17h

thought this was deepfake at first lmao


Infinite_Isopod5303

Don't be a millionaire dropout like me and stay in school kids.

TeemoSux

bruh thats not his actual thoughts on that shit lmao


JonayPS

Because he got paid for it? xD


Livid_Currency_7641

says the guy who droped out of school


southgate213

He got payed


Paid-Not-Payed-Bot

> He got *paid* FTFY. 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. *Beep, boop, I'm a bot*
