The year 2015 marked the year The Weeknd was finally awarded the credit he very much deserved as an artist. After topping the charts for weeks, breaking records in the process, he released his second studio LP, Beauty Behind the Madness.
Two days ago, he mysteriously deleted all the pictures on his official Instagram page, alluding to something being in the works. It is now Thursday, September 22, and we can confirm something massive was indeed brewing.
The Canadian crooner announced a brand new album. Christened Starboy, the album, due out November 25, marks his third full-length project. Also today, the album’s title track (most likely it’s lead single) was released.
In his time as an artist, The Weeknd has released a slew of fantastic records, marking himself out as one of the most exciting and talented exports from Canada in recent years!
