New Music: The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk – ‘Starboy’

A Star is born. Hours after announcing his new album Starboy, The Weeknd debuts the title track, which also serves as the first single. The Daft Punk-assisted song finds Abel boasting about his superstar status and bankroll, which includes buying his mother a car and a crib (“We don’t pray for love, we just pray for cars”).

“Look what you’ve done,” he sings. “I’m a motherfu**ing Starboy.”

Is The Weeknd Releasing A Collaboration With Daft Punk?

Set for a Nov. 25 release, Starboy features 18 tracks including “False Alarm.” The follow-up to last year’s Beauty Behind the Madness is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

Earlier this month, The Weeknd promised that Starboy would be his “best-sounding” album to date with influences ranging from The Smiths and Bad Brains to Prince.

“I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done,” he told VMAN. “It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”

Listen to “Starboy” come alive in the fall.
