Spotting a new haircut, The Weeknd releases his new single Starboy featuring Daft Punk. The record features production by Daft Punk, Cirkut and Don McKinney. The record was written by The Weeknd, Daft Punk, Don McKinney and Henry Walter.
The visuals feature The Weeknd killing himself again, he covers his head with a plastic bag and proceeds to suffocate himself to death.
Starboy has an eerie intro which is fitting for the music video. The Weeknd embodies the persona of the black panther he later meets in the music video as he destroys the awards and certifications he earned from his previous release, Beauty Behind The Madness. This gesture can be interpreted as The Weeknd seeking an idealistic and perfected version himself through his Starboy single.
