Here comes The Weeknd!

The singer is an undeniable ‘Starboy’ is and currently shining bright on the charts with the lead single from his like-titled new album.

Lodged at #2 on the US iTunes tally, the track’s sole competitor is The Chainsmoker’s seemingly unstoppable smash ‘Closer.’

Still, with the cinematic video for ‘Starboy’ here, is Abel about to topple the duo with the inevitable amount of streams heading his way?

Watch the Grant Singer visual below and let us know…

It’s not ‘Thriller,’ but smartly matches the magnetic moodiness of the song.

      • HailLegendBeysus September 28, 2016

        Im sure Columbia is using Payola for Adelephant as well. We all know their shady ways so stop!

      • LmfaoHoe September 28, 2016

        @Says not gonna lie I was suspicious about that nomination when the video just dropped aftee it was announced days ago for nomination video ????

      Beyonce’s Visuals won her the “Vanguard Award” & “Lemonade” won 8 VMA’s in one night… When will The Weekend?

    I like the symbolism of the video he killed the old weekend and this is the new one

  3. Ajax September 28, 2016

    I do appreciate the song, although this visual was a little lackluster. Left me wanting something more stunning, edgy and indulgent. Either way still great song and cool visual.

    check out my mix featuring this track
    “Pop Delight 3.5”

    King Abel! The glowing red cross is the star of the video! I think that’s intentional…his videos were interconnected last era, so I’m sure we’ll find out where he’s headed! Look what you’ve done…you a muPHUKIN starboy! #STARBOY #11/25

    Meh. I’ll pass.

    i find his voice to be a little bit “i’ve heard it before” dance moves are lackluster, and my 16 year old cousin could have wrote the lyrics. not being a hater because he is somewhat talented, but i just don’t get what the hype is, what does he really bring to the table that the music industry is missing? What about him is so captivating? I can’t help but think he jacked mj’s sound, and mixed it with this, “i’m a deep emotional guy who does drugs thing”

    • BOOBIE September 28, 2016

      It’s not for you ho

      • keepit100 September 29, 2016

        Your name just about sums up your maturity level so ill just act like you didnt call me a ho lol yall kids need to stay off your parents laptops hahahahaha

    • B&B September 28, 2016

      The Weeknd is a sellout. Just check the symbolism of his videos. Most are of his encounters with the devil. He also switched his target audience to caucasian americans/the majority.

      • keepit100 September 29, 2016

        The accuracy behind this is on point. It’s not about art, or music, its about how can i make the most money and get people to worship me. This music isn’t even that good, he should have stuck with that “wanna be trap” sound lol
