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.
All that aside, look how happy they are.
OVOXO might live on after all.
