The Weeknd is once again hitting up red carpets incognito style. The “I Can’t Feel My Face” singer was basically unrecognizable at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival at the Uncut Gems premiere Monday night.

The newly minted actor posed it up on the red carpet with a mini tapered ‘fro that should not have been that big of a change. But, pair that with a five-o-clock shadow instead of his full-grown beard and an R&B mustache and he had us shook.


This isn’t the first time, either. He gave us man-crush vibes after trading hin his signature locs for a cropped head of curls for the 2016 Starboy release.

This time around, he’s giving us old-school-meets-new-school player vibes à la Lionel Richie and Bruno Mars — but in a good way. I mean, he even pushed through in a clean, navy blue suit and a classic white button-up shirt.

Are you feeling his new look?
