As for the Weeknd, 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.”
