He purchased the property three years ago for $18.2 million and originally listed the home with a $25 million price tag in June 2020. 

His move comes after he vowed to continue making music ‘for as long as’ he ‘can breathe.’  

Thanking his fans for making his dreams come true and marking mega-hit Blinding Lights making history as the longest-charting song ever, he expressed his gratitude on Instagram. 

‘Forever grateful to be able to experiment with sounds, try new things with my voice and create music with the people I truly love and respect. For the last decade every song has been a journey and to be able to continue this journey has been nothing short of a blessing,’ he wrote. 

The singer added: ‘It’s the only gift I could ever ask for. I’ll be doing it for as long as I can breathe. I love my fans and wouldn’t be here without you. Big day for blinding lights. Multiple songs in the top 20.’  

The Weeknd is also known for his generous contributions to charities and donated a whopping $1 million to coronavirus relief efforts last year. 

The Save Your Tears crooner is set to be honored with the ​Quincy Jones Humanitarian award at the first annual Music in Action Awards.

The superstar will be among the honorees at the Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC)’s event on September 23, in recognition of the fact he’s donated several million dollars to various good causes since the pandemic began.

Among the organizations helped by the singer are Black Lives Matter Global Network, the Colin Kaepernick Know Your Rights Camp Legal Defense Initiative, and National Bail Out, as well as COVID-19 relief campaigns for MusiCares, in his hometown of Scarborough, Ontario and efforts in Ethiopia and Lebanon.
