Drake, A$AP Rocky and More Show Up in The Weeknd’s New “Reminder” Video
The Weeknd celebrates his 27th birthday in style today (Feb. 16) with the release of his star-studded new music video for "Reminder," a stand-out track from his Starboy album.
The stunning, four-minute visual features cameos from some of hip-hops biggest acts including A$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.
In case you missed it, be sure to listen to The Weeknd's new collaboration with XO signee Nav for "Some Way." Also, peep his performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards with Daft Punk for "I Feel It Coming."
