Listen: The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk, “Starboy”

It was rumored last month that The Weeknd had been working with Daft Punk, but I don’t think anybody expected that collaboration to see the light of day anytime soon (we were all wrong). A smooth, syncopated beat laid down by the 2014 Album of The Year winners sets the mood perfectly for Tesfaye’s boastful lyricism and painting of a world far-removed from the average. It’s hot. The Weeknd’s new album STARBOY is 18 tracks long and is out on November 25.
