The Weeknd celebrates his 27th birthday in style today (Feb. 16) with the release of his star-studded new music video for “Reminder,” a stand-out track from his Starboy album.
The stunning, four-minute visual features cameos from some of hip-hops biggest acts including A$AP Rocky, Drake, Travis Scott, French Montana, YG, Bryson Tiller and Metro Boomin. Fellow Canada natives Nav, Belly and CashXO also make appearances in the Kid-Studio directed clip, which you can check out below.
“Reminder” is arguably The Weeknd’s best song, lyrically, on Starboy. “I just won a new award for a kids show/Talking ’bout a face numbing off a bag of blow,” he croons. “I’m like, goddamn, bitch, I am not a Teen Choice/Goddamn, bitch, I am not a bleach boy/Whip game, make a nigga understand though/Got that Hannibal, Silence of the Lambo.”
Abel is living the life. There’s no denying that The Weeknd is a bonafide superstar at this point. The video speaks for itself: at various points, he’s ghost riding a red Lamborghini (suicide doors open, of course) alongside Pretty Flacko, turning up at the crib with Drizzy and some fine ladies, and hopping on a private jet with French and La Flame. The burning Hollywood sign is a nice touch, too.
