As The Weeknd gets ready for his upcoming album, “The Dawn Is Coming,” the “Take My Breath” singer named several artists who influenced the direction of the album.

Names like Britney Spears, Nas, and Kanye West may be unsurprising but The Weeknd also featured EDM group, Swedish House Mafia on his Apple Music show, Memento Mori, specifically their song, “It Gets Better,” as an influence for “The Dawn is Coming.”

The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia share the same management so there’s a real possibility that a collaboration between the two could happen.
