Starboy Has Officially Landed

Posted on November 25, 2016

Attention earthlings…Starboy has finally landed and the hype is REAL. The Weeknd officially dropped his fourth album last night with a blaze, in his home town of Toronto.

Within twenty-four hours of it’s release, Starboy reached #1 in over 80 countries. But back home, The Weeknd celebrated the album release, with an exclusive pop-up shop and listening party in downtown TO.

If you’ve been following Abel religiously, you’ll already have a good sense of what you can expect from the re-born Starboy. Days before the album dropped, he released a short-film titled Mania which is an incredibly dramatic and captivating visual montage of what the album has in store.

The Weeknd has certainly brought a whole new realm of artistic creativity to his work. From the moment he revealed his new look, to his neo-noir album art, racy videos, and eerie mix of sounds, we knew this album would be unlike any other.

But for those who long for something familiar, you can catch features with some of The Weeknd’s faves like Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey and Future.

He also discussed what it was like working with Kendrick, creating the album, and cutting his hair in this exclusive interview with BBC Radio.

Funk meets dark pop, the 18-track album will take you up and take you down a series of up-beat bangers and slower-jammers drenched in deep bass, infectious falsetto, and memorable plays-on-words.

Dive into the beauty behind the madness and let your ears do the rest. Check out Starboy below, and let us know what you think in the comments:
