STARBOY has taken the city and world by storm. Walking down Queen street the other day was a revelation as I heard the album coming out of car speakers and shops all along the strip. The Weeknd has crafted what I'm sure will be regarded as a classic and one of his standout works. The Ethiopian Canadian artist has shown he's capable of transforming not only his sound but himself through this latest project.
Recently The Weeknd sat down with Beats 1 host Zane Lowe for his first recorded interview. The reclusive and mysterious artist only ever gave a feature interview to The FADER's Anupa Mistry so this sit down is unprecedented. The two talk about the origin of STARBOY, working with Daft Punk, his relationship with his family, performing with anxiety and the possibility of a Drake X Weeknd collaborative project. The 46 minute interview is an in depth conversation and essential listening for anyone interested in The Weeknd. Watch the full interview below.
