MusicHear The Weeknd’s New Single, “Starboy,” Featuring Daft Punk
“Starboy” is the first single and title track off the album The Weeknd is expected to drop in November.
After teasing the song with a photo of his brand new haircut, The Weeknd has dropped "Starboy," the first single off his album of the same name expected out this fall. Featuring a collab with Daft Punk, "Starboy" absolutely goes in, and it's only a matter of time before it achieves some status of radio ubiquity.
The song hints at a continued evolution for The Weeknd that started with the rawness of his three mixtapes and landed at the pop-influenced Beauty Behind the Madness; now there's a slick, almost electronic sound to "Starboy." Of course, the Daft Punk influence could be a major factor on this song, and it remains to be seen if this sound will be featured throughout the album. Until then, enjoy this banger and wait for the "I'm a motherfucking Starboy" tweets/Instagram captions to start rolling in.
