As reported on the site last week, The Weeknd has confirmed he’ll release his new album ‘Starboy’ in late November.
The US R&B dynamo, who conquered charts with his smash hits ‘‘Earned It’, ‘The Hills’, ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ and ‘In The Night’, has preceded the LP’s release by dropping the title track and lead single, which now comes with its own music video.
And it would appear from it that he’s hell bent on putting his hit-laden past behind him, firstly suffocating the old Weeknd before meandering through his apartment trashing everything that’s been afforded to him these past couple of years.
Though he leaves the Daft Punk picture (they collaborate with him on this track) mercifully unscathed.
The blend of his smooth R&B with the trademark fuzzy electronica of the French duo is a curious one, but given it’s already in the iTunes top ten, it’s on its way to becoming a big hit.
