The Weeknd’s brand new song “Starboy”, which quite heavily features production work from legendary duo Daft Punk got its own music video yesterday and we obviously had to give it a watch to see what all the fuss was about. We can start off by saying that The Weeknd has cut all of his hair and spends most of the video destroying his old image (even killing himself off at the start of the video) and mementos from his life with a glowing red crucifix up until this point – it’s all fairly deep stuff.
During the video we get to see a cameo from Daft Punk (in the form of a painting), a host of utterly amazing supercars including the McLaren P1 and Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster and The Weeknd’s kitty who accompanies him on a ride before turning into a massive black panther. The whole video is a creative masterpiece and will do wonders to cement the new song as one of the biggest of the entire Summer.
