Starboy : The Weeknd performing ft. Daft Punk. Featuring McLaren P1 road-car +Debrief lyrics

Le 22 septembre 2016, The Weeknd et les Daft Punk présentait un nouveau morceau intitulé « Starboy ». Fin septembre, le chanteur compositeur et DJ Canadien d’origine Ethiopienne, a mis en ligne le clip vidéo du titre. Actuellement Starboy est classé deuxième au Billboard Hot 100 depuis 6 semaines. Cette vidéo réalisée par Grant Singer a été sélectionnée dans la catégorie « meilleur clip » des MTV Video Music Awards avant même qu’elle ne soit rendue publique. Et ça parle du star système, …de big-cat, …de McLaren… et de sa passion pour l’automobile.

L’ambiance y est sombre, mais l’esthétique de la photographie est lumineuse. Les paroles de « Starboy » évoquent la fortune nouvellement acquise du chanteur qui s’est fait connaître en postant des vidéos anonymes sur YouTube.

L’artiste, Abel Tesfaye, The Weeknd présente une version de lui, en tant que star, dans son appartement et évoque ses supercars de son garage. Même the cat devient a big-cat. On y voit le chanteur détruire toute trace de son passé dans un appartement afin d’entamer sa tansformatio, pour devenir Starboy, une nouvelle version de lui. Vêtu de cuir noir, il commence par tuer l’ancienne version de lui-même, celle en smoking de « Earned it », la chanson qui l’a propulsée au sommet, reconnaissable à ses dreadlocks.

Et Daft Punk ? Fidèle à eux-même, ils furtivement pendant quelques secondes dans un tableau en seigneurs posant et une panthère noire à leurs pieds.

Quant à l’artiste, il vient d’être officiellement nommé ambassadeur et collaborateur créatif de l’équipementier Puma.

Et le clip se poursuit avec une ode aux supercars Lamborghini Aventador et Bentley Mulsanne, avant que Starboy sélectionne sa McLaren P1, pour partir en route vers les collines de Los Angeles.

That is a real puma. #starboy

À l’intérieur de son auto, le chat est devenu beaucoup plus grand et puissant. Onboard of his P1, The Weeknd roule et va plus loin sur les routes ‘Hollywood Hills’.

Several cars that were mentioned in the song’s lyrics were featured in the video including the Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster which he sings in his second verse: « Pull off in that Roadster SV/ Pockets overweight, getting hefty, » a Bentley Mulsanne: « No competition, I don’t really listen/ I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition, » and the McLaren P1: « I’m trying to put you in the worst mood/ P1 cleaner than your church shoes. »

Le clip est réalisé par Grant Singer qui était également au commande de “The Hills” et “Can’t Feel My Face » de The Weeknd. En moins de 24h le clip a réuni 4 millions de vues. Le 10 novembre, The Weeknd publie le clip Lyric Video.

The Weeknd – Starboy ft. Daft Punk – Lyric

According to genius.com/The-weeknd-starboy-lyrics

“Starboy” is The Weeknd’s realization of his mega-stardom. Transforming from mysterious Canadian act to Billboard mainstay, The Weeknd has come a long way, but with negative consequences in his journey to the top, The Weeknd has developed mixed feelings towards fame.

“Starboy” potentially marks a new era for The Weeknd. On the release date of the song, Abel posted an Instagram picture with the caption “r.i.p ‘@abelxo,’” marking the turn of his character and sound.

The song features production from French electronic duo Daft Punk, marking the first collaboration between The Weeknd and Daft Punk. It’s the latter’s first single since “Give Life Back To Music” was released in early 2014.

“Starboy” is the title track and lead single from The Weeknd’s third studio album, expected to release November 25th, 2016.


[Verse 1]
I’m tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb’ just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main bitch out your league too, ah
Side bitch out of your league too, ah

[Pre-Chorus]
House so empty, need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking bout me, I don’t see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

[Chorus]
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy

[Verse 2]
Every day a nigga try to test me, ah
Every day a nigga try to end me, ah
Pull off in that Roadster SV, ah
Pockets overweight, gettin’ hefty, ah
Coming for the king, that’s a far cry, ah
I come alive in the fall time, I
No competition, I don’t really listen
I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition

[Pre-Chorus]
House so empty, need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking bout me, I don’t see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

[Chorus]
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy

[Verse 3]
Let a nigga brag Pitt
Legend of the fall took the year like a bandit
Bought mama a crib and a brand new wagon
Now she hit the grocery shop looking lavish
Star Trek roof in that Wraith of Khan
Girls get loose when they hear this song
100 on the dash get me close to God
We don’t pray for love, we just pray for cars

[Pre-Chorus]
House so empty, need a centerpiece
20 racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking ’bout me, I don’t see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

[Chorus]
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy
Look what you’ve done
I’m a motherfuckin’ starboy

The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ Lyrics & Video a Love Letter to Luxury Cars

According to http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/7525734/the-weeknd-starboy-mclaren-p1-luxury-cars-video

The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster, a convertible wedge of volume-thirteen unobtanium, finds its way into the second verse. “Pull off in that Roadster SV/ Pockets overweight, getting’ hefty.” As does the $300,000 ultra-luxury Bentley Mulsanne, outfitted with a particularly compelling and fitting ’80s soundtrack. “No competition, I don’t really listen/ I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition.”

But the real romance is reserved for the McLaren P1, a hybrid hyper-car, with a top speed of 218 mph, a $1.5 million price tag, and an extremely limited run (only 375 were produced, worldwide). Not only does the song give props to the avarice-inducing nature of this beast in the first verse (“I’m trying to put you in the worst mood/ P1 cleaner than your church shoes”), the car is also featured prominently in the video, in which our star passes up the other cars in his stable to take it for a high-speed spin through the twisties of Mulholland Drive — with a charcoal-colored panther in the passenger seat.

A panther. Baller status, transcended.

Even the world’s biggest carmaker couldn’t afford product placement like this, let alone a boutique British brand. The connection must be sincere. So to uncover the truth, we (Billboard Team) reached out to John Paolo Canton, McLaren’s director of public relations, and he confirmed that this car belongs to the artist. “It was a great surprise for us to see The Weeknd’s P1 in his new video – doing what it does best on the open road,” Canton said. Signifying that he’d watched the video and heard the song, he added, “We were equally thrilled to see that he does indeed keep his P1 as clean as a pair of church shoes, which isn’t always the case with Supercar owners.”

Lest we think that these vehicles came to reside in his garage through some glorified rental program, The Weeknd reminds us of his stable’s legitimate origins, and his correlatively deep pockets. “None of these toys on lease too/ Made your whole year in a week too.” And if there was any remaining doubt about his elemental love of fast cars, The Weeknd will be performing live in late October as the headlining act following America’s only sanctioned Formula One race in Austin, Texas. We hope he drives down.

  1. Ce clip Starboy est sublime.

    Personnellement, et étrangement, …en tant que graphiste web designer, je retrouve nombreux codes graphiques utilisé dès 2012 pour mon projet DESIGNMOTEUR : le rouge, le noir, les lumières des phares. A titre perso, je suis passionné de McLaren depuis les années 90… le moteur de ma passion pour l’automobile… initié sur Need for Speed en 1997.

    Aussi, j’apprécie tout particulièrement les félins dont les chats et surtout l’animal jaguar, …autant que le constructeur Jaguar, 😉 dans un autre genre.

    Plus terre à terre, LA Auto Show 2016 débute cette semaine. Et c’est marrant mais dans le jeu Need for Speed 2015, on peut rouler sur des routes s’inspirant naturellement de ce magnifique panorama de nuit, à Los Angeles. J’ai fini le jeu NFS avec ma custom McLaren 570S.

    😀

    Bon là, pour le clip, c’est un vrai puma, mais ça existe le jaguar noir. Bref, voir une McLaren avec à son bord un big-cat est vraiment spécialement marrant quand tu es passionnés autos et de félins. On est nombreux à l’être, sans doute, et certainement !

    😉
