Thankfully, the audience got treated to a medley of two of the Starboy's already hit tracks, the title track and the Daft Punk assisted closing song, "I Feel It Coming."
Starboy dropped in full at midnight just as The Weeknd's interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe also went live on Apple Music to take us through the album track by track. Earlier this week, the R&B crooner also shared a visual take on his album with the Mania short film. Brought to life by the "Starboy" music video director, Grant Singer, the video follows The Weeknd, his panther, and his McLaren P1 through the emotional highs and lows of the Starboy album through an impressive story written by the singer himself.
