Back in 2013 the only two songs you were ever likely to hear outside the confines of your home were Pharrell’s feel-good earworm, “Happy,” and “Get Lucky,” Daft Punk’s collab with the aforementioned Williams and Nile Rodgers.
Amazingly enough the latter only reached as high as No. 2 in the billboard charts and Daft Punk have never had a No. 1 hit single. Until now that is: “Starboy,” their collab with The Weeknd, has reached the top of the pile. Well done, guys, you deserve it.
Have a listen to the entirety of The Weeknd’s new album, Starboy.
