“Starboy” went live at digital partners on Thursday September 22. Between Thursday and Sunday, it amassed over 17 million streams globally and 6.5 million streams in the United States alone, shattering the previous record in the process. Meanwhile, at radio, “Starboy” stands out as the “One Week Most Added Record of All Time in North America,” becoming #1 Most Added at Top 40, Rhythm, Urban, and Hot AC—yet another history-making accolade. This sets the stage for Starboy to become one of the biggest albums of 2016.
The official “Starboy” music video premiered today on VEVO at 12pm ET. Directed by frequent collaborator Grant Singer, it offers up an explosive visual companion to the song. Watch below:

iLL BLU are back. The dance pioneers that paved the way for the current UK popular house world have signed a new record deal and released their debut EP with the legendary Island Records in partnership with Climax Music.
Climax Music secured the official worldwide exclusive remix for The Weeknd ‘Often’ by iLL BLU. This is going to be their first official release to come through their newly formed label partnership with Island Records.
iLL BLU ακα Darius and James say; “We knew we had something special when we finished the track. We wanted to stay true to the incredible vibe of the orginal version but put our iLL BLU spin on it. Consequently, Abel liked it and has endorsed this version to be the only official remix. We were honoured as we have both been huge fans of The Weeknd since House of Balloons dropped in 2011. We are also excited to get this exposure and connect with this new audience. It is great that so many new people will get to hear the iLL BLU sound since he has such a large and diverse range of fans.”
