The Weeknd Unveils The Lana Del Rey Co-Penned “Party Monster”: Listen
In addition to releasing his second collaboration with Daft Punk “I Feel It Coming,” The Weekend (real name Abel Tesfaye) has also dropped another single called “Party Monster.”
Unlike the former, this number sees the Canadian crooner reverting back to his paranoid, vice-laden self of yore. It’s co-written by Lana Del Rey and recounts Tesfaye’s night of debauchery over looming, woozy guitars. “I’m like, got up, thank the Lord for the day,” he sings. “Woke up by a girl, I don’t even know her name.” What’s more, the track received backing vocals from LDR, who coos to the singer that he’s “paranoid.”
The Weeknd also revealed the tracklist for Starboy, which comes out next Friday (November 25). And in addition to Del Rey and Daft Punk, the LP boasts features from Future and Kendrick Lamar.
