For those following the singer on Instagram you could not have missed the subtle hints he’s been dropping like breadcrumbs. The trail ended in Comic-Con New York with the unveiling of the project prior to which The Weekend had posted a preview image of the first cover on Twitter.

The ‘I Feel It Coming’ crooner was quoted saying, “I guess this is the fourth chapter. He’s a character that we created… he’s a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album… he’s a more braggadocios character that we all have inside of us.”
