The Weeknd Teams Up With Daft Punk For Moody New Track “Starboy”: Listen
Welp, we’ve officially entered The Weeknd‘s Starboy era.
Along with announcing his forthcoming LP, the bedroom crooner (real name Abel Tesfaye) has released his Daft Punk-assisted album title track. Here, Tesfaye aims for moody club euphoria as he croons about celebrity culture while simultaneously gunning for the pop throne. “Look what you’ve done/ I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy,” he laments over the French electronic duo’s soaring, piano-laden “oohs” and “aahs.” It’s quite a triumphant return for the Canadian singer, if I do say so myself.
The 18-track album is scheduled to release on November 25th via Republic Records.
