"Starboy" is a song recorded by Canadian singer The Weeknd for his third studio album of the same name. It features French electronic duo Daft Punk and was written by the trio alongside Doc McKinney, Henry Walter and Jason Quenneville, being produced by Daft Punk and co-produced by The Weeknd, McKinney and Cirkut. It was released as the first single from the album on September 21, 2016, by XO and Republic Records. It is an R&B and electropop song with lyrics that contain themes of extravagance of a celebrity life. "Starboy" topped the charts in countries such as Canada, France, Netherlands, New Zealand and Sweden, as well as the US Billboard Hot 100, where it became The Weeknd's third chart-topper, and Daft Punk's first chart-topper. The music video for the song was directed by frequent collaborator Grant Singer, who directed The Weeknd's previous music videos for "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills". In the music video, The Weeknd is shown trying to destroy evidence of his previous self, including his own awards from his past album, Beauty Behind the Madness. The video has been described as The Weeknd's attempt to murder his former persona.
