Warning - the lyrics of the songs on this album encourage sexual promiscuity, pornographic situations, drug use, mixing of drugs, and pervasive language. Steer clear of this album.

Thought this was a ok 2nd effort.

There is a 80's Michael Jackson danceable feel to this album, that the collaboration with Daft Punk felt right. His high falsetto is usually haunting, but this is more upbeat with explicit lyrics.

Not my fave artist, but definitely up there

Starboy is an album by the well-known singer: The Weeknd. The Weeknd, who rose to fame in recent years due to his voice, has collaborated with many artists in this album. I enjoyed the variety that came with some solo songs and some collaborations, which includes names like: Daft Punk, Future, and Lana Del Ray. Nearly all of the songs in the album were enjoyable, and while some of them were a little slow, others were more upbeat. This is definitely a great album, and it goes to show why The Weeknd has become such a sensation in the music industry. Some of my favourite songs in Starboy are: Starboy, Sidewalks, Reminder, and Secrets. I would recommend this album to anyone, and I would give it a rating of 4.5 stars.

Starboy is a studio album, written, produced, and performed majorly by Abel Tesfaye- also known as The Weeknd. The tracks throughout the Starboy album have a wide range of tempos, musical styles, and lyrical meaning. Songs off of the Starboy album reflect hardships, heartbreak, and even triumphant moments in Tesfaye’s life so far. I enjoy the R&B feel to the music, as well as the hints of rap. I think the music throughout this album is very catchy, and soothing. Some songs on the album will make you want to get up and dance, while other songs can make one relate to the sadness of heartbreak. I really enjoyed this album overall. I would recommend this album to a friend. I would give this album a 4/5.

Starboy is The Weeknd’s most mainstream album. There’s more pop on it than his previous works, but it’s still good. It still has songs that sound like his old stuff, but with new sounds that are pleasant too. Starboy, Sidewalks, True Colours, Die for You, and Secrets are the songs that stood out the most on this album. They stood out, because they are earworms. These songs will stay in your head long after you have listened to this album. I should add that the album isn’t perfect, it’s way too long and a few of the songs aren’t that great. It’s not a terrible album either. The album is a bit better than Beauty Behind the Madness. There are many pros that do outweigh the cons on whether this is a good album. It’s good and I’m interested to see what The Weeknd will do next.

Staryboy by the weeknd is his latest album. It is a mix of r&b and pop. The weeknd has really put himself as one of the biggest artists today as his popularity has been on the rise. This album helped that claim as it was enjoyed by many. His hit single Starboy, which opens the album, was one of the most popular songs of the year. The album contains 18 songs and some features including Future, Kendrick Lamar & Daft punk. This is one of my favourite albums by him and some of my favourite songs are Starboy, Reminder, Sidewalks (ft. Kendrick Lamar) and Ordinary Life. This album is a must recommend if you haven't heard it yet.

More pop than his previous albums, which isn’t surprising judging by his post-Fifty Shades career, but it turns out that isn’t a bad thing. There’s still a dark undercurrent to much of the album (Party Monster being the obvious example) but it’s a bit more fun than Trilogy or Beauty Behind the Madness. I prefer his older albums but Starboy is still solid.

The Weeknd is the Michael Jackson for this generation...outstanding album with a touch of '80's music of the most innovated musician out there right now...collab with daft punk is a great partnership.
