In 2012, The Weeknd signed with Republic Records, and re-released the mixtapes as part of the compilation album Trilogy. His debut studio album, Kiss Land, was released in 2013. He followed the album with Beauty Behind the Madness, which was among the best-selling albums of 2015. Containing the Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills", Beauty Behind the Madness won Best Urban Contemporary Album and was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
