The Weeknd dropped his latest album, Starboy, just last week, and it’s quickly heading to the number one spot on the Billboard charts. To celebrate the release, the Canadian crooner born Abel Tesfaye made his daytime television debut on Monday’s episode of Ellen. No one was more excited by the appearance than Ellen DeGeneres, who couldn’t contain herself from proclaiming her love for The Weeknd after his performance. It was a warranted exclamation, though, as his delivery of his new record’s title track backed by a full band and a heck of a laser array was certainly worthy of the adoration. Check out the whole thing above.
Starboy, which also features Kendrick Lamar, Future, and Lana Del Rey, is out and streaming now. In support, The Weeknd’s Legend of the Fall Tour kicks off in the spring.
