There have been many theories about the meaning of The Weeknd's latest video, "Starboy," including that it represents the Illuminati and a satanist cult. However, it's hard to know if this is true, especially since the video hasn't officially been released yet.
First, it's important to note that the song and album title, Starboy, are a reference to David Bowie's famous album, Starman. Both songs feature a repetitive chorus that hypnotizes listeners into an anxious trance, creating a sense of chaos.
The Weeknd's "Starboy" is an up-tempo electropop track with large 80s-inspired synths and electronic dance music drums. The song's lyrics also reflect The Weeknd's struggle with addiction and mental health.
A masked killer enters The Weeknd's house and suffocates him. Then the killer removes his mask and we see a new, evolved version of The Weeknd, who is referred to as the "Starboy."
In the video, the new Starboy persona destroys all of the evidence of his former self, which includes plaques, awards, and history. He then takes to the streets with a huge red neon cross and drives off with a black panther at the end.
The Weeknd's new music video is a gritty, symbolic piece that is definitely worth watching. It's an interesting take on the starboy concept and offers a more serious side to The Weeknd's career. It's also one of the best videos the singer has ever produced. Check it out below!
