''Starboy is a character that we created… he’s a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album… he’s a more braggadocios character that we all have inside of us.''- The Weeknd
''The vibe on ''Starboy'' comes from that hip-hop culture of braggadocio, from Wu-Tang and 50 Cent, the kind of music I listened to as a kid. Bragging just sounds good, man. I was a teenager when I saw Scarface, and even though it was unbelievable, it’s kind of cool Tony Montana could survive all those gunshots and not feel them.'' - The Weeknd
''The way Daft Punk make music, the way they explain it, is very cinematic. It’s like they’re reading a page out of a novel - 'We want to make sure that at the end, it feels like the sun’s coming up, and maybe there’s a car chase'.'' - The Weeknd
