The Weeknd offered a similar message earlier in the month when talking to Variety. “If the last record is the after hours of the night,” he told the publication at the time, “then the dawn is coming.”

Also nominated in the category of Top Hot 100 Song were 24kGoldn ft. Iann Dior for “Mood,” Gabby Barrett ft. Charlie Puth’s “I Hope,” Chris Brown & Young Thug’s “Go Crazy,” as well as DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar.” Earlier in the evening, The Weeknd nabbed the trophy for Top Hot 100 Artist.

Nick Jonas hosted the 2021 festivities, which this year were held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
