Popular singer, the Weeknd (a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye) recently celebrated a major milestone when his hit single “Blinding Lights” marked 90 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart—an all-time record.
Now he’s celebrating the record with a series of limited-edition NFT collectibles released through Tom Brady’s Autograph platform and the OpenSea marketplace.
The seven Ethereum NFTs mark a collaboration between the artist, Autograph, music industry publication Billboard, and collectible cards startup The Infinite.
The Weeknd recently released physical trading cards inspired by the milestone via his official website.
The NFTs are currently listed on OpenSea, and auctions for each will begin this afternoon and run into Thursday.
Six of the NFTs feature footage from the “Blinding Lights” music video, while the other shows The Weeknd on the cover of Billboard.
All seven NFTs have been digitally signed by the weekend.
