THE WEEKND
PONIES UP

XO/Republic superstar The Weeknd donated $500k late Monday night ahead of "Blackout Tuesday." Among the organizations receiving funds from the hitmaker: Black Lives Matter Global Network ($200k), Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp ($200k) and National Bail Out ($100k). 

The Weeknd followed up his donation—which he proved by posting receipts—with another post challenging UMG, WMG, SME, Spotify and Apple Music to "go big and go public" with their donations. He added "no one profits off black music more than the labels and streaming services. It would mean the world to me and the community if you could join us."
