The Weeknd Performing “Starboy” On Season Premiere Of SNL


The Weeknd will light up Saturday Night Live with his new song “Starboy.”

Abel Tesfaye dropped his album title track without warning late Wednesday night, and less than a day later is announced as the headlining performer on the upcoming season of SNL with host Margot Robbie on Oct. 1. Not a bad 24 hours for the smooth singer (despite the drama with his headlining gig at The Meadows music festival in NYC that same day. Long story short: there was a scheduling conflict at first, but after some finagling, he’s still performing).

We’re back next weeknd! #SNL
