Yesterday, The Weeknd announced his follow-up to his 2015 album, Beauty Behind the Madness.
The project is titled Starboy and fans of Nigerian artist Wizkid know that the project shares a name with his nickname.
While most might accuse The Weeknd for “appropriation,” Wizkid kept it positive and responded to one’s fans query about the similarity on Twitter, writing: “Everybody’s a Star!.”
Check out the response below and stay tuned for more news and updates surrounding this.
But can someone ask @wizkidayo what he thinks about Weeknd calling his album “Starboy”?
