A TAV Curator's Pick.

Academy Award-nominated, 2x Grammy Award-winning, and 9x JUNO Award-winning alternative R&B artist The Weeknd's third studio album Starboy has finally arrived! The highly anticipated follow-up to his triple platinum 2015 release Beauty Behind the Madness captured the No. 1 spot in a staggering 90 countries and debuted atop the Billboard 200.

The 18-track double album features four songs that have been soaring up the charts since their release - "Starboy," "False Alarm," "I Feel It Coming" and "Party Monster" plus incredible features from Daft Punk (album opener and lead single "Starboy and funky closer "I Feel It Coming"), Kendrick Lamar ("Sidewalks"), Lana Del Rey ("Stargirl Interlude") and Future ("All I Know"). – Press Release

“The album is a perfect blend of The Weeknd’s vibe and musical style. After many listen-throughs, this album lives up to the hype and delivers a cohesive body of work that encompasses everything The Weeknd has to offer: a blend of r&b, pop, hip-hop, and even ballads.

Starboy is a body of work that anyone can appreciate. Older fans will be happy to hear his infamous somber lyricism, moody atmospheres, and powerful vocals while newer fans can appreciate more pop-influenced songs that still push the envelope of mainstream sound.”Earmilk

“Starboy contains pretty much everything that you've ever loved about The Weeknd, no matter what it is you love about him. There's nihilism, anonymous sex, drug abuse, angelic falsetto, queasy instrumentation, Drake-esque bangers, repentant ballads, undeniable pop gems-- but also a heavy dose of new avenues pursued. For one, the album's smack-dab in the '80s with its samples, sounds, and influences. While Tesfaye expertly mimicked Michael Jackson on a few BBTM singles, he's out here emulating the decade's weirder, more moody mainstays, like David Bowie, Tears For Fears, and Prince, which better suit his emo tendencies. There's also a mush lusher use of live instrumentation-- white-hot electric guitar on "Secrets" and "Sidewalks," brighter keyboard all around, and some top-notch bass guitar throughout. The most important new additions, though, come from inside Tesfaye himself.”Hot New Hip Hop
