The track, which is the title cut from his new album, is now the 26-year-old hit-maker’s third Hot 100 #1. He first reigned with “Can’t Feel My Face” for three non-consecutive, followed by “The Hills” for six weeks.
It also serves as Daft Punk‘s very first Hot 100 #1, according to Billboard. The Grammy-winning French EDM duo had previously peaked at a #2 high (before “Starboy“) for six weeks with “Get Lucky,” featuring Pharrell Williams, in 2013.
The Weeknd recently hit the stage to give an exclusive live performance of “Starboy” and other tracks off the LP for Vevo at the LA Hangar – Check out the clip below!
