The Weeknd‘s long-awaited album has officially arrived after heaps of anticipation. Starboy, out now, is composed of 18 brand new tracks from who is arguably the R&B artist of the year.
Including Daft Punk collaborations “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming,” the album’s singles are slowly starting to gain as much traction as the album itself. With that comes the unearthing of a couple of surprises: productions from producers Diplo and Cashmere Cat.
Diplo is to credit for production on “Nothing Without You,” an R&B jam intertwined with pop and electronic elements. He should definitely dabble in this sound more often.
Taking the production level up a notch is Cashmere Cat, who produced four different songs on the album. His involvement was confirmed earlier this month, so while we’re not surprised, we’re definitely impressed. His credits include “True Colors,” “Attention,” “All I Know,” and “Die For You.”
