Twenty-seven years ago today, The Weeknd, ne Abel Tesfaye, was born. To celebrate, the R&B crooner has gifted us all with an unexpected video for the song “Reminder,” off of his latest album Starboy.
The video, which can be found on VEVO, is a subdued glimpse at what is probably a normal day in the life of Tesfaye. Of course, there are women draped in expensive furs, fancy cars and whatnot, but the best part of the video is the unexpected cameos.
YG, A$AP Rocky, Bryson Tiller, French Montana, Travis Scott, Metro Boomin and more make appearances in the video, but the reunion of Toronto’s most famous stars is what’s really makes this a birthday treat for us all.
Drake and The Weeknd were frequent collaborators early in their careers but have since had a vague public relationship that never quite escalating into a full blown beefbut never necessarily returned to the buddy-buddy terms they once occupied in 2011 when The Weeknd was seen by some as Drake’s protg of sorts.

Sure, you can celebrate your love of Migos any day you’d like, but thanks to a creative project from Spotify, celebrating Valentine’s Day with the Atlanta trio and someone you love just got more exciting.
The streaming service created a website for the holiday that lets you plug a name into the Migos card generator and voila! You’ve got a custom “raindrop, drop top” messagea phrase repeated from the group’s smash hit “Bad and Boujee.”
If you’re unfamiliar with Migos, the Atlanta group rose to prominence with the help of a remix from Drake in 2013. They, however, soared in popularity when they landed their first song atop the Billboard charts with “Bad and Boujee” which Donald Glover famously shouted out while onstage at the Golden Globes.
The catchy refrain of “raindrop, droptop” spawned countless memes, with people taking their own spin on the verse.
Now you too can make your meme, fit to send your significant other on Valentine’s Day. Swipe “dat way” on their site to see all of the hilarious cards and share them across the internet.
