The Weeknd, real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, was born in February 1990 in Toronto and was raised in Scarborough.
The Blue Jays back then were wildly popular as they fielded strong teams after opening their new retractable roof stadium, SkyDome, in 1989 and became the first Major League Baseball team in 1991 to draw more than four millions fans in one season.
With their win over the Atlanta Braves in the 1992 Fall Classic, the Blue Jays became the first team outside of the United States to win the World Series.
The Blue Jays won 95 games the next season and won back-to-back World Series by beating the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1993 World Series.

The Weeknd is the only child of Makkonen and Samra Tesfaye, who were Ethiopian immigrants in the late 1980s to Canada.
He was raised by his mother and grandmother in Scarborough after his parents split and rarely saw his father.
