The Weeknd Debuts ‘MANIA’ Mini-Movie [Featuring Songs From ‘Starboy’ Album]

Published: Wednesday 23rd Nov 2016 by Sam

For music’s upper echelon, traditional roll-outs are becoming obsolete. Indeed, in their place are releases that aim to top each other by way shock, awe, and decisive points of difference.

The Weeknd takes on this memo for new album ‘Starboy.’

Due in stores this Friday (Nov. 25th), the LP is preceded by its title track, a slew of others, and now a mini-movie named ‘MANIA.’

Unveiled moments ago, the moody 12-minute special features material from the LP; a move designed to spotlight the music in a manner different from the “usual.”

Will Abel have a seat at the table with chart titans after this? Watch below and let us know…

    Beyoncé impact. Everyone making a movie to go along with their album now days . But none have the Same success as bey tbh

    • Kai November 23, 2016

      MJ did it first with Blood on the dance floor with the short film Ghosts

      Much later Kanye West did it with Runaway
      Lana Del Rey with Tropic
      Justin Bieber did one last year with his album Purpose:The Movememt

      And many more artists have done a short film

      Stop living in Beyonces a***

      • Chile Please!!! November 23, 2016

        YOU MUST BE YOUNG AS HELL TO SAY SOME DUMB SHYT LIKE THIS….You better do your research… sick of everyone riding Fleayonce bra strap like she started all this. YOUR WRONG!

      • BEY>RIH November 23, 2016

        Self-titled came out before JB Purpose…

    • Dee November 23, 2016

      I think Bey’s Lemonade movie was exceptional; but in my opinion, the music was lacking. It really didn’t stand well on its own, as a result I didn’t get the album.

      • RhiRocks November 23, 2016

        That’s ok you don’t need to buy the album over 2.5million people have already brought it in 7 months

      • gina November 23, 2016

        lies. that boring sh*t is still stuck at 1.5. The inflation is real.

      • BEY>RIH November 23, 2016

        Umm… Lemonade has most definitely sold 2.6 million copies since its release. Stop talking out your a**!!!

    • gina November 23, 2016

      stop it. beyonce didnt do sh*t first. i swear her fans must be the most clueless uneducated morons on earth.

      • RhiRocks November 24, 2016

        World wide sales u dumb ass . Over 2.5mill the only album released this year to do this . And she didn’t need xmas sales to do this

  3. Truthtea November 23, 2016

    I was gonna say Nicki did it before Beyonce, but the top came out after Beyonce’ so….never mind:(

    • gina November 23, 2016

      please, everybody did it before beyonce.

      • BEY>RIH November 23, 2016

        Its a fact that Bey is the first artist to have a SUCCESSFUL, ACTUAL visual album.

  4. Fancy BISH November 23, 2016

    King Abel bout to slay! THREE songs in U.S. Spotify’s Top 10 and the album hasn’t even dropped! Starboy, Party Monster and I Feel It Coming

  5. Lmfao_Hoe November 23, 2016

    He is definitely getting my coins !

  6. Dee November 23, 2016

    I think this short film is very effective because it showcases really good music. I haven’t actually bought a CD in a long time. I will be getting this.

  7. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 23, 2016

    Eeeh It’s ok. He did a little something like Kanye did for Runaway. I’m finally happy that he got a black model for once. She was stunning! I definitely hear Daft’s Punk’s influence that ties well with Abel’s personal sound. I definitely some songs but not all. I’ll give the album a spin with some Bob.

    • B2B November 23, 2016

      You love some Bob! ????

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 23, 2016

        imo that’s how you truly fall in love with music.

    • Blue Ivy Rod November 23, 2016

      He doesn’t like black girls. In the clubs, he would always be like “don’t let the black girls in” the clubs. its okay though because his lack of any vocal ability will bring him so far

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy November 23, 2016

        I heard he did that back in Toronto. It made a lot of sense to me as he always has some asian model broad in his videos. It’s exactly why I made some sly side comments on this blog when he did the #BlackLivesMatter on IG. Personally, I think he has some mommy issues from when I listen to House of Balloons and Echoes of Silence thus hates black women…And the shaadddee about his voice. Yeah, we all know how thin his voice is and that AMA performance was FVCKING horrendous, but people can only talk negative about Rih

    I don’t even care for Abel, but I’m intrigued by these samples of the album… Ugh, I think he won me over?! I don’t know how to feel? ?
