The song Starboy might have released long back but we are still dancing to its tunes in clubs till date. His third studio album and sixth full length album is a sweeping, ambitious statement of intent from one of the biggest artists in the world!
The song stayed on top of the billboard for as many as 8 weeks. The new visual identity for the Weeknd has been on point too, with Nabil shooting the album cover and Grant singer directing a short film, mania and the STARBOY video. All of this seems to be the mark of a new era for THE WEEKND as he's peeling back some of the mystery and presenting us with the music that is more varied and polished than ever.
At 18 tracks and over an hour long, there's a lot to take in Starboy. Starboy received generally positive reviews from critics and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200, with 348,000 album-equivalent units, 209,000 of which were pure sales. It also debuted at number one on Billboard's Canadian Albums Chart. In June 2017, the album was certified double Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album won the Grammy Award for Best Urban Contemporary Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards!
