Starboy - The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk




The Experience: House so empty need a centerpiece... Just a starboy... When you look your success in the eye and realize how empty it all is...



Music video: The Weeknd kills his old self with its distinctive hair, and then strips off his ski mask to reveal the new him, in black leather and a huge cross. As he dances through his old apartment, he nods appreciatively at all the platinum and gold records, and then proceeds to burn his way through the closet, and smash his way through the awards and furniture with a glowing red cross he picks off the wall. The music video sends a clear message - the starboy is over. But what's coming? The video doesn't tell: the cross stays in the wrecked apartment, and The Weeknd drives off into the night with only the car and his cat and dog... destination unknown. But a cross also featured heavily on the set of The Weeknd's October 2nd SNL appearance. Coincidence or message?


The Meaning of Starboy: The Weeknd takes a look at what fame has made him, only to recognize that he's nothing more than a starboy - a playboy surrounded by sex, drugs - ivory - money and lots of toys. But that life in the fast lane is empty and screaming for something to fill it - house so empty need a centerpiece - and self-destructive - 100 on the dash get me close to God.

Ask yourself: Where do you go when you want a new life?

Album: Starboy (2016)

LYRICS:

I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point 2 just to hurt you, ah
All red lamb just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main b-tch out of your league too, ah
Side b-tch out of your league too, ah

House so empty need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man
I love my baby
You talking money need a hearing aid
You talking bout me I don't see the shade
Switch up my style I take any lane
Switch up my cup I kill any pain

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)

I'm a m-th-rf-ck-n Starboy

Every day a n-gga try to test me, ah
Every day a n-gga try to end me, ah
Pull off in that roadster sv, ah
Pockets over weight gettin hefty, ah
Coming for the king that's a far cry I
I come alive in the fall time I
No competition I don't really listen
I'm in the blue mulsanne bumping New Edition

House so empty need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man
I love my baby
You talking money need a hearing aid
You talking bout me I don't see the shade
Switch up my style I take any lane
Switch up my cup I kill any pain

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!

Let a nigga Brag Pitt legend of the fall
Took the year like a bandit
Bought momma a crib and a brand new wagon
Now she hit the grocery shop lookin lavish
Star trek roof in that wraith of khan
Girls get loose when they hear the song
100 on the dash get me close to God
We don't pray for love we just pray for cars

House so empty need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face
Man I love my baby
You talking money need a hearing aid
You talking bout me I don't see the shade
Switch up my style I take any lane
Switch up my cup I kill any pain

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
I'm a m-th-rf-ck-n Starboy
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
I'm a m-th-rf-ck-n Starboy

(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
I'm a m-th-rf-ck-n Starboy
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
Look what you done!
(Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)
I'm a m-th-rf-ck-n Starboy
