The teasing, exactly one minute long, was already announcing the color. The Weeknd‘s new album, “Dawn FM“, coming out this Friday, offers some nice surprises. Including many collaborations, spaced over the record.
Among them, some are more unlikely than others. We find for example Jim Carrey, legendary actor. Their first meeting was not without originality: “He lives literally two houses from mine. He has a telescope, and I have a telescope too. He asked me where I lived, what floor I was on. I told him, so we each went to our windows with our telescopes, and we saw each other, “the Canadian artist told Interlude news outlet. Several artists who have already collaborated with The Weeknd are also present: Lil Wayne, for whom the pop icon had participated in the title “I’m good”, on the rapper’s non-streamable album “Dedication 5”, or even Oneohtrix Point Never, with whom he has already collaborated on the title « No Nightmares », extrait de l’album « Magic Oneothrix Point Never ».
We also note the presence of Tyler The Creator, with whom the artist had said he wanted to work last summer, as well as Quincy Jones. As a reminder, The Weeknd received the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award last September, awarded by the Black Music Action Coalition. “The Weeknd and HER have both used their platforms to draw attention to racial and social injustice and raise awareness around the world.”
