Hey Rob, I'll share a link which contains a series of pictures of The Weeknd standing next to Adam Sandler.
The link :

I'll also share a link to a picture, where you could clearly see the kind of footwear they were both wearing, on that particular day.
Here's the link to it :

From these pictures of them standing next to each other, taking their postures, camera angles, standing positions and everything into consideration, how tall does The Weeknd look ?
Editor Rob
Could be near 3 inches shorter there.
berta said on 1/Nov/21
interesting. i just saw him perform with ariana grande and thought " this guy must be really short" this seems about right. My impression from his performance was that he was somewhere around 168-172.

He is def not 5'6. He's 5'8

he holds up quite well in the above picture
Aj06 said on 23/Apr/21
He is 5'6.5 he is listed at 5'8 HOwever for some of the time I thought he looked as low as 5'5 however the woman he was with was also wearing slight heels so, I dont think he is as high as 5'8 or as low as 5'5, 5'6.5 is good.

Well height is much less important for a musician that is famous more for their music and is heard more than they are seen compared to an actor who makes money based on visual performances through movies. So obviously height matters more there
Leesheff85 said on 28/Feb/21
I think this height is off looks 5ft 6 flat to me. Certainly not a weak 5ft 7
Jakey said on 21/Feb/21
Strong 5'6 He's not yet recited any major Mtv award, that's obnoxious!
Yoktagon said on 18/Feb/21

because people don't pile and bash into someone they don't consider otherwise attractive. Tom is great-looking, thus they must bring him down with his height. Also different levels of stardom
Duhon said on 9/Feb/21
Funny how some celebs get "tarred" with the short connotations like Tom Cruise does. I've rarely heard anyone comment on the Weekend's height despite being shorter than Tom.
Rohon Ray said on 9/Feb/21
Hey Rob I am like 173.3 cm in the morning and 171.5cm in the night. Would I be noticably taller than the Weeknd in photos?
Editor Rob
eyelevel wise, there may not be anything in it really
Nemanja said on 31/Jan/21
Rob, do you have any evidents that he's wearing lifts? Like is there any photo where he obviously wear insoles or lifts?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure if he would wear them.
Kapqpjss said on 14/Jan/21
Isn’t the average rapper 5’6 nowadays
Axel21 said on 25/Dec/20
At 5'3″ tall, Lanez is shorter than the average rapper, according to an arrest report via The Sun

Tory lanez is listed as 5'3 and here is a picture of The Weeknd with Tory Lanez At 5'3″ tall, Lanez is shorter than the average rapper, according to an arrest report via The Sun

The Weeknd only gets 5'5.
5'8 boy said on 19/Nov/20

That looks a 2 inch difference I would say he's 5'6.5

Xotwod said on 6/Nov/20
Rob, Im a little bit above 168cm at night and like 170cm in morning, is there a chance that me and weeknd are same height and how likely is that true?

Btw huge fan of his work, he deserves everything he achieved if not even more, such a great artist
Editor Rob
I think in a photo, his hairstyle would help him look taller, but eyelevel wise, there might not be too much in it really.
Public Enemy said on 18/Oct/20
Great artist. As listed.
Americanboy1995 said on 17/Jul/20
Rob, how tall do you think rapper Tory Lanez is? He is getting clowned on social media right now after an arrest report had him at 5'3 and 120lbs.

This is him next to Abel.
Click Here

This is the arrest report: Click Here

I think the Weeknd is the type of person that looks tall on camera due to leg length and head size but in real life could even be in the 5'6.25 range at night.
Editor Rob
Maybe he stood a foot in front of a height chart, then a big cop looked and the angle knocked a couple of inches from how he looked. I doubt he's really as short as 5ft 3.

Solid 5’6 cant see weak 5’7
Angus said on 7/Jun/20
5 ft 6-7 but wears lifts to get him up to 5 ft 10-11
Peter175 said on 21/Apr/20
He has looked above 5'6.5 a few times.

In the Victoria secret, granted he uses massive shoes there show he looked a good 5'7" at parts.

With Selena Gomez at times he holds maybe more than 2 inches on her.

With Drake he can sometimes look a 5'7er.

But thats about it

But with Bieber, Bella, Asap Rocky, Grande during SNL and other events he struggles to push above 5'6".

I think 169 was perfect for him.
Littlelee5ft6 said on 20/Apr/20
Why has his height gone up? He doesnt even look 5ft 6.5 let alone a weak 5ft 7
DP276 said on 17/Apr/20

I’m also an XO fan, and I’ve clearly looked at each one of their heights on multiple occasions.
Nav 5’9
Belly 5’8
88camino 5’11
Derek Wise 6’1
Both 88glam members tower over Nav, they’re way over what you’ve listed them as.

i guess we'll never know unless he shaves his head lol
Shoaib99 said on 22/Mar/20
Why did you upgrade his height?
If the Weeknd is 169.5cm then Justin Bieber would be 173.1cm
Justin is clearly 1.5 inches taller than him in many photos
Editor Rob
I think he can pull off near 5ft 7
shadoweden117 said on 21/Mar/20
I can't see him above 5'6.5 to be honest, looks about 2 inches shorter than Bella Hadid (listed 5'8) while they wear similar height boots (Weeknd's looks a tiny bit thicker, at least in the front). Their postures look good, Bella's head is tilted a bit though. Link - Click Here

And next to Ellen (listed 5'6), he looks a tiny bit taller, about half an inch I'd say. It's hard to ignore his hair which gives the illusion of him being taller than he is. Link - Click Here

Pause throughout 0:57, 0:58, 0:59 to see!

I think he was spot on at 5'6.5. what do you think @Rob?
5'7" akira said on 18/Mar/20
5’6” 3/4 is too low for him, he’s at least 5’7”

Lol what - one of the few celebrities I've actually met face-to-face, and this is WAYYYYYY off...he's at least an inch and a half taller than this listing. He honestly didn't seem much shorter than me (I'm 177-8cm)

Here are 2 photos with Idina Menzel and the Weeknd, it looks like she's 1-1.5 inches shorter than him without hills so 169 for weeknd seems right, but I think that she's taller than 163cm tho, myb like 165, I doubt that woman would lie for 2 inches
Wraith talk said on 5/Jan/20
Wtf 168 cm, nah, i saw Abel in real life and he like 172 cm
John126e said on 12/Dec/19

from your username I already know ur a fan of his but buddy charlamagne looks taller than him in that pic. Also those pics below with Bella Hadid show he's 5'6 at his absolute best he's clearly 2 inches shorter than her (in the same footwear) and she's not more than 5'8
trilogy said on 17/Oct/19
The weeknd with 5'6 listed charlamagne. I would say weeknd is a very strong 5'6 but def not a full 5'7. Probably 5'6.25 is the lowest he could be at night.

Dacquan Alexander said on 13/Aug/19
I always thought his 5'8 claim seemed bogus, well Google's 5'8 claim
Aayan Shakir said on 2/Aug/19
Rob he look at least 2 inches shorter than (5'8) Bella Hadid in most of the pics
The weeknd mostly wears thick boots when he goes out

Take a look at these pictures of The weeknd with Bella Hadid Click Here

Click Here

He almost looks 2 inches shorter than Bella Hadid in both the pictures

He needs a downgrade
5'6 is absolute maximum for him
Heightguy said on 14/May/19
What’s his low do you think rob
Editor Rob
I'm thinking the mark I gave him might be a low for him, at times he does seem taller.
xoxo said on 11/Mar/19
the weeknd I think is 5'6.5 but only out of bed, I can easily see him being a flat 5'6 at the very lowest. Rob you have to keep in mind his choice of footwear. Look at his puma XO parallel shoes, they easily add 2 inches of height. I think his proportions make him look taller on camera and you would be surprised if you see him in real life.
Editor Rob
I'm not sure those Puma's are near 2 inches, 1.2 maybe, but I can see how he's looked 5ft 6 flat at times, and near 5ft 7 too.
gt905 said on 3/Jan/19
The Weeknd never looked over 5’7.5

Well Rob, here are my listings for some other rappers from XO Records
Nav 5’7.75 (172)
Belly 5’9 (175)
88camino 5’9 (175)
Derek Wise 5’11.25 (181)
Littlelee168cm said on 3/Nov/18
He looks 5ft 6 his hair adds height I should know what 5ft 6 looks like he'd maybe be a fraction taller than me without the hair piled on his head

@ Nik - I thought the name was familiar! 🍪🍟!
Sandy Cowell said on 11/May/18
@ Nik and Christian 6ft5 and 3 eighths: Thank you both very much indeed!

I won't be losing any sleep over the matter any time soon! As you say, Nik, today's spelling and grammar is terrible on the whole, but it has nothing to do with the rapper! It was just an opportunity I seized, but being a name, it wasn't exactly a good one!

Cheers to you both! 😊🙋😁
Nik said on 11/May/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I like the name "Potato" too! There was a visitor called "Potato McCain" on Paul Walker's page in January! 😂😂😂!
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 10/May/18

No worries, it's not your fault either. Potato was the one who accused you of saying something you didn't say.
Sandy Cowell said on 10/May/18
@ Potato - I like the name!
Nik said on 10/May/18
@ Christian-6/5 3/8

Thanks for your support! Like you said we thought he did it on purpose!

@ Sandy Cowell

That's true, we weren't having a go at "The Weeknd" and we were having a gripe about today's level of spelling and grammar! Don't blame yourself!
Laura Bogart said on 9/May/18
Is The Weeknd look like he's from Mauritius to you where everybody who's everyone is all short?
Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/18
@ Christian 6ft5 and 3 eighths - Thanks for your kind support! Actually Nik had nought to do with this! It was me using the spelling of the name to have a gripe about today's lousy spelling and grammar! It wasn't even a decent example as there are no hard and fast rules in how to spell any name. I was being a boring old fart who is set in her ways!
Nik said on 9/May/18
@ Potato

I think that Sandy and I just thought it was misspelled for a lark and we were just joking about it, it would have been a cool thing to do and he is cool! He doesn't have the proportions of a 5 ft 7" er, not that this matters either way. He is still a solid 5'6" but whatever his height he is cool and this applies to everyone, short is just as good as tall!

Sandy Cowell said on 9/May/18
@ Potato - 😣

Is that better?
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 9/May/18

When did Nik and Sandy pick on Weeknd? They just thought he misspelled his stage name on purpose because they didn't know that he couldn't use "Weekend" because of trademark. I think they should've done a bit more research before jumping to conclusions but I doubt they were picking on him.
Potato said on 8/May/18
@Nik @Sandy Cowell The "e" was taken out to avoid trademark issues with the Canadian band called "The Weekend". You can get off your high horse now and stop picking on The 5'7" Weeknd.
mitt said on 12/Mar/18
Lol, are people that insane to think he is around 170-180 pounds heavy or is there a joke I am not getting??? I am around his height give or take half an inch, roughly the same build, he is slightly more muscular than me in the upper body and I weigh between 130-135 pounds. If anyone thinks he is above 150 pounds needs to think thrice, not twice.
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Mar/18
@ Nik - Yes, I agree totally that words offer an enormous scope for fun and laughter to young and not-quite-so-young-as-you-were people alike!

Unfortunately, its correct use is becoming less and less important and it really makes me cringe!

Imagine then, how tempting it was for me to jump in and say something when the gran in hospital wrongly corrected her grand daughter's spelling of the word 'alignment'? That the youngster automatically picked up the great torrent of rubbish that I inadvertently kicked off my bed a little later on because I couldn't get comfortable was just an added bonus! 😉
Nik said on 7/Mar/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi mate!

Unfortunately I think that incorrect spelling haas crept in amongst some of our youngsters, it's just easier to spell things the simple, lazy, and sometimes wrong way. However many of our youngsters are still good at spelling, thankfully!
Words are such fun and there are many good word games too, I agree that Ronnie Barker had a great way with words!

Sandy Cowell said on 5/Mar/18
@ Nik - Hi there! Yes, I think it might have been on Simon Cowell's page that I used the emoji before: just a bit of fun, as are deliberately mis-spelt names! But I cringe to think that some youngsters out there might start spelling real words like that! 😬

Words are great and scope for such fun! We were shown that by the greatest comedians, Ronnie Barker to mention just one. The list is endless...
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Mar/18
@ Nik and and Fisticuffs, with particular emphasis on Nik, to a less degree on Fisticuffs, and of course, Rob, and anyone else who might take a passing interest:

I prefer an 'e' in my weekend, and before you all think there's a double entendre, which there most certainly is, I'm more the sort of person who believes in correct spelling!

Otherwise, I might be tempted to spell my name like so:

The Weeknd gets 5ft6 and an appointment at his nearest nightschool 📜🏣 for some spelling lessons, and another 📜 at his nearest hite skool for some stretching exercises, just in case he can squeeze another half-inch out of his lithe young frame.

Then, and ONLY then, he can take a chilllll pilllll:
Nik said on 27/Feb/18
I like his name! I can offer him 5'6", but no change!
Fisticuffs said on 25/Feb/18
I would say no more than 150.
The Shredder said on 9/Jan/18
exactly , I'm 5'6 about 190 lbs right now with more muscle mass than it appears and I'm way heavier than he is and I have a medium frame.

For him to be anything over 165 , 170 he would be jacked up and look like a body builder or just a chubby guy walking around.
Peter175 said on 6/Jan/18
why would he weigh more than 165-170. He's not that fat and has a small frame
andre said on 3/Jan/18
Lol 165cm barefoot maby no more then that
xoxoxoxo said on 2/Jan/18
So is Google height wrong? And if yes why are they still giving heights out?
Anonymous said on 22/Dec/17
Christian-6'5 3/8 , OK. Like a quarter inch taller than 6'1.25" listed Anderson Silva puts him at 6ft1.5in. Still 186 pounds.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 22/Dec/17

Weidman isn't legit 6'2". He's only like a quarter inch taller than 6'1.25" listed Anderson Silva.
Tonyx said on 19/Dec/17
The Weeknd is in no way heavier then 170 pounds. He's not overly fit but he's never fat or chubby. My guess- these days he is 155-160 pounds.
Look here Click Here around 18:20. There is a moment when a UFC fighter Named Chris Weidman is on the scale and he weghed in at 186 pounds. He is a legit 6ft2in guy with a 78in reach. Yes he cuts weight, but in that specific moment he was 186 pounds. Here is another short video Click Here
Yes, I understand Abel(The Weeknd) is not a high level mma fighter and doesn't cut weight but he is low on muscle mass, he is small even if we are all wrong and he is 173cm tall he still doesn't look like a guy who ways more then 170 pounds. Sure he might gain weight from time to time but he looses it.
Amazing singer.
The Shredder said on 15/Dec/17
He is nowhere near those weights , 175 at the very most.
Panda said on 13/Dec/17
Rob any clue how much he weighs. I know several sites report him weighing 185-190 lbs but I don’t believe he is THAT fat. He has mentioned that he is fat and does look to be on the heavier side but definitely can’t be that overweight (the jackets do make him look fatter than he actually is imo). I would guess 175 lbs for him given his height. What do you think?
Editor Rob
maybe near 180 at times, but also 170...nearly 190 I'm not sure he's quite that heavy
Micho said on 22/Nov/17
Looks taller than Ellen for an inch or two. 5'8 is my guess!
Tallish89 said on 6/Oct/17

Any photos of footwear?

Justin tends to always add a couple inches to give himself a boost
jevon90 said on 30/Sep/17
169-170cm is where you start to look just below average and not short. I think this listing is right but 5'6 flat is also possible.

He's the same height as Selena. Either upgrade Selena or downgrade him. There are plenty of evidence that shows they are similar height.

Boosie is 5'5", so blac youngsta is in that range. 5'6.5" is a good listing for the weeknd. Maybe a fraction shorter.

Headbanger, he does pop, hiphop and R&B. Just like Chris Brown
jyr said on 10/Jun/17
Picture with the weeknd and and blacyoungsta shows the weeknd evening him out in some flats. Blac youngsta's polic report had him at 5'7. Judging from this photo the weeknd must be 5'8 at least. A weak 5'8 i believe.

At least one inch shorter than justin but near 6 inches taller than ariana. I'd say 5'6.25-5. Maybe a weak 170 at best. Defo not a full 5'7 though imo

It is difficult to judge people of pics strolling but I see minimum 5 cm between The weeknd and Selena Gomez
Tanisha said on 6/May/17
Is he actually that height?Cause I don't believe that.I thought he would be way taller.Cause he looks really tall in his music videos.
The one said on 2/May/17
So that would leave him at 5'6" or so? I do believe after those pics 5'6.5" is a stretch. Selena is 5'4.5". 4 cm would mark him at 168 .
Editor Rob
I certainly wouldn't rule out a chance of 168, though overall I think he could still be a bit closer to 169
The one said on 29/Apr/17
Found these recent pics of Selena and The Weeknd-both appear to have level footwear. He only looks 1.5 inches taller than her in these pictures, what do you think Rob?

there could be at most 4cm between them.

He's 5'7 and weighs 192. I feel thin at 5'9 and 175 lbs.
Pete said on 20/Mar/17
He definately wears lifts. Suprising though because he never seemed like the type.
The man said on 2/Mar/17
Good marking. Hair is definitely throwing off those that are saying he is or is greater than 5'7". Could see him anywhere in the 168-169cm range.
Redus said on 6/Feb/17
He was seen in a picture with jaden smith. Jaden smith is in flats wile the weeknd is in some lifts. Even thought he is in lifts jaden is clearly taller. Considering jaden and weeknd are listed at the same Heights means something is wrong here. Three was at least an inch difference between them, maybe more.
Nova176 said on 5/Feb/17
Amanda, Selena is 5'4.5 maximum. She's at least 3 inches shorter than Justin.

Abel is likely nearer 5'7 and tends to wear blocky shoes himself
lemme said on 2/Feb/17
5'6.25 possible?
Amanda said on 30/Jan/17
Now that he's dating Selena Gomez I am confused. She is about 5'5/6 and wearing heels he still looks taller.... and
letsbefair said on 29/Jan/17
this is why they say 5'7 gets you out of being short, and weeknd's pretty close to it, especially with the hair he sports...
Redus said on 23/Jan/17
This one always confused the bagoogle out of me. His height is different Everytime I see him. I can conclude he isn't above 5'10 but I'm not sure on the exact height. My best guess is probably 5'7 -5'8
Nova176 said on 19/Jan/17
I agree DetroitMichigan, I think he has to be wearing lifts in those VS shows. His height is FAR too inconsistent. During Victoria Secret he looks 5'9 next to 5'10 Adriana Lima in 5 inch pumps. In those shoes she should easily be pushing 6'2-3, but abel manages to look VERY close (definitely eye level) with her. I never seen a 5'6 dude manage that well against a 5'10+ woman in heels standing tall. Hell he doesn't even have the proportions of a 5'7 dude but he can look 5'9.

Click Here

But then again he holds up well against Jimmy Fallon, he actually held up better than someone like Kit Harington who's 5'7
Click Here

But with Bieber he appears 5'5.5-6 same with 154 Ariana Grande.
My conclusion is that probably close to 5'7" in actuality and wears some lifts in those shows that get him up to a decent 5'8.5 standing height and also tends to have lose posture when not preforming.
Realist said on 5/Jan/17
I am about 176.5 cms but my frame is big and I give off a 5'10 impression. These guys are usually thin so on TV they will look always 5'9 but in person 5'5-5'6 and 130-150 lbs. I just think me being bigger effects my career as a journalist. Being skinny is good for everyones career.
DetroitMichigan said on 3/Jan/17
His case is very strange. During Victoria Secrets concert he looks quite average near all this "tall" models in heels. Also near Future listed at 6'2 he looks 5'9. But near Justin Bieber and Drake he seems 5'6 at best
mason said on 29/Dec/16
woah he's tiny when I saw his face I thought he'd be a good 5'9 haha.
Same said on 10/Dec/16
Same. I never drop to a flat 5ft6 at night. At worst 5ft6 and 3/8. Congrats for taking first place on celebheights weeknd!

maybe 5'6 at night rob?

same, I am not so sure he'd drop that low.
Marie said on 2/Dec/16
When I saw him on the AMA'a he looked 5'2 lol
Jayden said on 25/Nov/16
He's a pretty short guy maybe even 168cm
malik99 said on 23/Nov/16
looked 1-2 cm taller than margot robbie on snl and is noticeably shorter than bieber,167.5-168 is fair
javk said on 15/Nov/16
5ft5 for the weeknd !!
Peter175 said on 15/Nov/16
He's not even as tall as Bieber and Bieber isn't even as tall as Kanye. There is about a 0.75-1 inch difference between each. Kanye would give off a very average height impressive IRL, whereas Abel would look in that "pretty short range" and bieber would look "a little short"
BilboBaggins said on 12/Nov/16
I'd say he's close to 5' 8", personally. He looks to be in the same height range as Kanye West, IMO. Rob, did you find any quote from The Weeknd himself about his height?
Editor Rob
Bilbo, I've not seen or heard him give a height.
paul said on 7/Nov/16
5'11 it's a joke for him he always look as a short guy
eee said on 3/Nov/16

Jumbo said on 26/Oct/16

eww said on 23/Oct/16

Rr said on 7/Sep/16

The Expert said on 12/Aug/16
5'6 = minimum height
5'6.5 = medium height
5'7 = max for him
James said on 11/Aug/16
@Tim he's nowhere near 5'8"

With 172-174cm Mario Gotze who's slouching, yet is still atleast 1 inch taller
no said on 31/Jul/16

he looks an easy 5 inches shorter than drake minimum in every picture. drake who's not even 6' the top of his head doesn't even reach the bottom of drake's nose.
mweccer said on 28/Jul/16
this sounds about right i would say he is around 5'6. he looks tall in photos but i met him back in the day and he was pretty short and compared to me who is 5'9 he looked around 3 inches shorter than me , maybe more
Tim said on 23/Jul/16
Im preety sure he is around 5'8. He definitly looks taller than 5'6. He looks 3-4 inches shorter than drake whos 6 ft making abel around 5'9ish
weew said on 15/Jul/16
the 5'6.5 that can look 5'8, that hairdo is a genius for shorties
MD said on 14/Jun/16
Kendrick Lamar is listed at a tops 5'4.5" here and is really closer to 5'4" flat, and Torey Lanez as I showed on the Height Request page isn't even a full 5'6". You're boosting each of these guys by at least half and inch.
XO said on 11/Jun/16
There's a pic of him with Kendrick Lamar(5'5) and he's a couple inches taller....

Also has a pic with Tory Lanez (5'6) and he's an inch taller than him so 5'7 seems about right
TJE said on 13/Apr/16

I second that. 5'6-5'6.5 is his range.
Peter175 said on 10/Apr/16
Closer to a flat 5'6 than a flat 5'7 no doubt. I think 5'6.25 is the best guess for him
Warren said on 16/Feb/16
omfg!!! I can't believe this! I thought he's 5'10 or more all the time.
his body looks not short for me.
Cthulu said on 10/Feb/16
Here he is next to 5ft11 Dicaprio: Click Here

If Leo were standing completely straight, the top of Abel's head(excluding his tall hair) would be below Leo's eyeline. There does seem to be more than 4 inches between them.
EzioAuditore711 said on 9/Feb/16
Looks tiny. 5'6.5" might be right.
Yuvalxo said on 25/Nov/15
he's always wearing a rather flat sneakers and probably without any lifts unlike most the celebrities in my opinion
Allie said on 16/Nov/15
Well.. he's now 5'8 on Google.. closest to the truth I guess.
Weezy said on 15/Nov/15
That 6'0 listing on google was a joke... Especially after I seen him with Drake
Click Here
And here's picture with 5'9 Mario Gotze

Guess 5'7 is about right, although he might be an incher shorter.. Somewhere in that range
slothee said on 10/Nov/15
Downgraded yet again. I remember seeing him listed as 5'11" on Google and thought "....what?! That can't be right."
andred said on 6/Nov/15
5'5-5'6 is about right. 2 inches shorter than Sheeran.
ShortRussianDude said on 28/Oct/15
definitely not a full 5'7 Looks 1.5 inches taller than 5'5 spike lee and near 4 inches shorter than 5'10 diddy.

5'6.5 I think is fair.
the shredder said on 16/Oct/15
At least 5'6 , but he looks 5'6.
MD said on 12/Oct/15
Maybe not even this listing. With 5'10" P Diddy:

can't see anything over 5'6 for this guy. proportionately long legs make him appear taller on his own but next to anyone else it's obvious

he constantly wears very thick-heeled boots as well and probably does in each of those pictures. 5'5-5'6
TJE said on 11/Sep/15
Hard to tell his weight, but his choice of clothing makes me suspicious. Still, he's gotta be at least 150.
Weeknd said on 9/Sep/15
Hes a small framed guy. 160 does shock me.
the shredder said on 9/Sep/15
He looks less than me at 160 , my weight varies , I am 5'6 though.
MD said on 8/Sep/15
Huh? I'd be shocked were he under 160lbs at this height. He generally hides his weight pretty well, but he's not a thin or even average physique, he just knows how to dress for his physique.
Aza said on 7/Sep/15
Good shout....he looks listed height.
Slothee said on 6/Sep/15
What made you downgrade him? Wasn't he originally listed as 5'8"?
Editor Rob
he looks more 5ft 7
the shredder said on 5/Sep/15
No way is he over 160 being 5'7.
Aza said on 5/Sep/15
'He's got a pineapple on his head!' ..... Sorry could not resist!
5'11 flat in louisville said on 5/Sep/15
Looks an inch taller than 5'6 Kylie Jenner and 2 inches taller than 5'5 Kendrick Lamar. 5'7 or 5'6.5 sounds better
height24 said on 4/Sep/15
but wait tyga is 5'7.5 so it means that the weeknd is really more 5'6 ish according to the pic
the shredder said on 4/Sep/15
He looks less than Ed Sheren , 5'7.5 tops
TJE said on 3/Sep/15
173 is a bit much. Looks 172 max to me.
MD said on 3/Sep/15
Nice find, height24. 5'8" is way too tall a listing. He's 5'7" and that's the very top of the scale. He's started off a full inch too tall.
alex said on 2/Sep/15
I agree he looks more like 5'7-5'7.5
height24 said on 1/Sep/15
he is around 5'7 max
Here is a picture of him with tyga

MD said on 31/Aug/15
He is not 5'8".
Request1 said on 31/Aug/15
Rob, if you look up Drake and Weeknd, there are many pictures where Weeknd looks way shorter. Like, definitely below 5'8 range if Drake is 5'11. 75". What's up with those pictures?
Editor Rob
there is a good chance weeknd could dip into 5ft 7.5 range.
Andred said on 30/Aug/15
Looks 5'7 with Sia.
Guest said on 29/Aug/15
Gets listed 5'11 yet he looks few inches shorter than 6'0 Drake. 5'8 it is
alejandro92 said on 29/Aug/15
Rob would you say he's got a big head for someone who's your height? I think his head looks a bit big for a 5'8 guy.
Editor Rob
doesn't look that big, his hairstyle though maybe adds to an illusion?
Height183 said on 29/Aug/15
Rob, Is Drake looking more 6'0'' here?

Click Here
Editor Rob
he can look a fraction over it
!? said on 28/Aug/15
He's around 5'6. There are pictures of him being shorter than 5'8 footballer Goetze and 5'8 rapper T.I.
He's also dwarfed by Drake.
the shredder said on 28/Aug/15
WOW , Shorter than I though lol. Rob what you guess his weight?
Editor Rob
he might be over 160 near 170 range
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
Jason Lee (remember him Rob from Nottingham Forest haha) called to say he wants his hair back! "He's got a pineapple on his head, he's got a pineapple on his head!". Gives a shorter impression above.
MaryAnne said on 28/Aug/15
OMG!!!! thanks Rob!!! but for some reason i thought he was taller maybe its just the hair..
