The Weeknd Height Comparison

With the Weeknd being just under the average American male height at 5’8 we can see the sizeable difference when stood next to the tallest rappers such as Young Thug.

Young Thugs height has been recorded at 6’3 making the Weeknd appear even shorter.

Taking a closer look at the image we can see all parties have their feet placed on the ground which provides an accurate perspective on their height.

During the premiere for Uncut Gems photographs of the Weeknd and Kevin Garnett went viral on social media due to the sizeable difference between the 2.

KEVIN GARNETT and the weeknd

The official NBA website states Kevin Garnett’s height is 6’11. So tall that he made the Weeknd look like a young brother. The average NBA player is 6’6 which goes to show the former player is a beast.

Lastly we can see the weeknd stood side by side with Nas who both are 5’8. During the behind the scenes of a video shoot they took the picture below.

The pair have made several appearances outside of music videos and its clear to see on all photos the pair being the same height and stature.

Does Height Matter in Pop Culture?

The only thing that matters when it comes to music is quality, fans don’t care what the artists looks like, or we should say looks are secondary.

The average height for an American male is 5’9 therefore its more common to see the Weeknd’s height amongst most men as opposed to individuals that are 6 foot plus.

The great thing about Hip Hop and R n B is that we have representation from both tall and short artists who have made a global impact which is proof that height doesn’t play a part in one’s success. So no height does not matter in the slightest.
