Watch The Weeknd Perform New Hits Off ‘Starboy’ Album
On Saturday (Dec. 17), The Weeknd performed a bunch of hits from his latest album, Starboy, at the Vevo Presents concert in Los Angeles. The show took place at the L.A. Hangar Studios in front of over 1,000 fans.
The Toronto singer ran through tracks including "Starboy," "Party Monster," "Reminder," "Secrets" and "False Alarm." Abel also performed some of his older cuts like "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills." You can view the high-energy, 30-minute long performance above courtesy of YouTube.
The highlight of the concert was when The Weeknd brought out Kendrick Lamar for "Sidewalks," track No. 9 on the new album. The song is undoubtedly one of the fan favorites off the album.
The Canadian artist previously spoke about collaborating with K. Dot for the record during an interview with Zane Lowe.
“[Kendrick Lamar’s] a genius. He is really a genius,” said Abel. “He’d walk around. He’d play the record over and over again ... 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.”
The Vevo Presents concert was the icing on the cake for The Weeknd's colossal 2016, during which he reasserted himself as one of the biggest pop/R&B artists in the world.
Abel is kicking off 2017 with his Starboy Tour, which begins in Stockholm, Sweden in February. You have until tomorrow (Dec. 22) to enter to win tickets to the tour.
