Listen to The Weeknd’s New Album ‘Starboy’
The tracklist features two superstar rappers with Kendrick Lamar and Future, and in a new interview with Zane Lowe, the Toronto star talked about the genius of the former.
“He’s a genius. He is really a genius,” Abel says of K. Dot. “He’d walk around. He’d play the record over and over again. I played him songs, the Starboy theme of course, which he incorporated into his verse. He would just walk around. We had food. He’s writing his verse in his head. He would go into his phone, look at it a few and then put it back and start walking around. He then at one point went into the studio booth and I closed the door and I could hear him yelling his verse in his head. He was really committed, you can tell he put his all into. It wasn’t just a random Kendrick Lamar verse, it was something special because again, I don’t like to say this all the time, but we’ve known each other for a while and it’s crazy how we started connecting on this record.”
