Lana Del Rey has given The Weeknd a special shout-out on Instagram.
As The Weeknd‘s new album ‘Starboy’ dropped earlier today (November 25), Del Rey posted a video of herself singing and dancing along to its songs.
Del Rey features on the album’s ‘Stargirl Interlude’. She also co-wrote and performs backing vocals on the song ‘Party Monster’.
The Weeknd has released his new album ‘Starboy’ today – stream it here.
‘Starboy’ is Canadian singer Abel Tesfaye’s third studio album. It follows 2015’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’, his 2013 debut ‘Kiss Land’ and the R&B star’s 2012 ‘Trilogy’ of mixtapes.
The record also features collaborations with Daft Punk, Future and Kendrick Lamar. Tesfaye recently described the latter as a “genius” in an interview on Beats 1.
“It wasn’t just a random Kendrick Lamar verse, it was something special because again, I don’t like to say this all the time, but we’ve known each other for a while and it’s crazy how we started connecting on this record,” he told Zane Lowe.
Speaking about working with the French duo in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said: “Their studio is like a spaceship, there’s a lot of gear, but the way they make music, the way they explain it, is very cinematic.”
It was revealed earlier this month that the album’s title is a tribute to the late David Bowie. Confirming that the reference is deliberate, The Weeknd said: “I just love Bowie, I think he’s the ultimate inventor.”
