Clio Music Grand Clio: Integrated Campaign
Entrant: Republic Records
Brand: XO / Republic Records
Campaign: "The Weeknd After Hours Album Campaign"
Republic Records crafted an album release like no other for The Weeknd's After Hours, combining music videos, digital activations, live performances and more, culminating in a culture-defining smash hit of a record whose numbers speak for themselves—10 billion global streams, including the top track globally on Spotify for "Blinding Lights." The work also propelled Republic Records to be named Clio Music's Label of the Year.
