The Weeknd Jokes He Should ‘Pull a Ye’ and Change His Name to Just Abel

The Weeknd took to Twitter to contemplate changing his name.

“I feel like I should change my stage name to ABEL at this point,” he wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “Maybe pull a YE and just legally change my name to ABEL. No last name. Like Madonna or Cher or Prince. I don’t know it seems like a lot.”

The Weeknd then tried out his name change tweeting, “ABEL formally known as The Weeknd?”


John Legend agreed with The Weeknd’s proposal responding with, “ABEL is dope,” to which The Weeknd responded, “I’m tempted.”

Do you think The Weeknd should change his name to “ABEL?”
