The Weeknd's 'Starboy' Video Surpasses 1 Billion YouTube Views

  /  05.16.2017

The Weeknd hits a billi.

While Abel continues his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” across North America, his Daft Punk-assisted “Starboy” video surpasses the 1 billion view milestone on YouTube.

Released in September of last year, the cinematic visual found The Weeknd dead and then revived with a fresh new haircut. Directed by Grant Singer (“Can’t Feel My Face,” “The Hills”), the clip also introduced fans to the “Starboy” persona and his subsequent album’s neon-colored motif.

Despite its whopping numbers, “Starboy” isn’t the XO boss’ most popular video. At press time, “Starboy” had 1,032,525,541 views and it was the second-most popular clip on his page behind “The Hills,” which had a total of 1,062,508,561 views. “Can’t Feel My Face” rounds out the top 3 with 787,245,939 views.

Currently, Abel is on the road with Rae Sremmurd, Belly, and 6LACK as part of the “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” across North America. Dubbed “Phase One,” the run is set to conclude June 9 in Cincinnati.
