The Weeknd Saw Success With ‘Take My Breath’ Single
The lead single for “Dawn FM” is “Take My Breath,” which was released back in August. This went on to be another huge hit for The Weeknd, as it debuted at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The release of “Take My Breath” also came in the middle of a 2021 year, where Weeknd’s 2020 “After Hours” album was still posting historic numbers, and had two number one singles on it. That year also included Weeknd performing at the Super Bowl, in Tampa.
