Canadian singer, The Weeknd has captured netizens’ attention. This time around it is not for his trendy tunes or captivating music videos but for a rather unique reason. The mastermind behind songs such as Save Your Tears recently changed his Instagram profile picture to a sketch of himself that a fan drew. The fan art is unusual, to say the least. The Weeknd’s decision to make the drawing his Instagram display picture has sparked a lot of Twitter chatter.

@Tw1tterPicasso created this sketch in 2017, but the drawing came to The Weeknd’s attention only recently when another Twitter user named ‘Albert’ reshared it.
