The Weeknd's 'Starboy': Album Review
Hit or miss? We review The Weeknd's much-hyped 'Starboy' LP.

This is a no-brainer. It looks like The Weeknd is going with “Secrets” as the fourth single from Starboy. (I thought “Party Monster” was just a buzz track, but I guess not). It’s the obvious choice — a fan favorite with immense pop appeal and a killer sample. Think of it as a less druggy “Can’t Feel My Face.” The Canadian superstar has been spotted filming the video at the University of Toronto and soulful jam is going for radio adds next month. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if they push it back.

After all, current single “I Feel It Coming” is still climbing the Billboard Hot 100. It’s currently perched at number 16 and should go a lot higher after The Weeknd’s Grammy performance. (There should also be a video coming at some point too). While Starboy hasn’t produced as many smash hits as Beauty Behind The Madness, there’s still a lot of life left in it. Listen to “Secrets” below and revisit the song it samples, Tears For Fears’ “Pale Shelter,’ at the bottom of the post.
