Neve Campbell Reacts to The Weeknd Mentioning Her on New Album

Neve Campbell, a Canadian actress, has reacted to The Weeknd mentioning her on his new album ‘Dawn FM.’   Abel Tesfaye, a fellow Canadian, sings on the single “Here We Go… Again: “I loved her right, make her scream like Neve Campbell.”

During an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the Scream star was asked about the shout-out and said: “How crazy is that? It’s pretty crazy.

“Well at first, my publicist told me, and she was like, ‘The Weeknd,’ and I was like, ‘Wait, which weekend? Last weekend?’ I had no idea what she was talking about.”

“And then I realized, ‘Oh, the guy who played at the Super Bowl! That guy!’” she added to Corden. Fellow Canadian. How cool.”

Corden then responded: “I can only think he’ll be really disappointed if he knows that you described him as the guy from the Super Bowl, given he’s arguably one of the biggest and best-selling artists of his generation.”

‘Dawn FM,’ The Weeknd’s fifth studio album, was released earlier this month (January 7), after his 2020 full-length ‘After Hours.’ Tesfaye has hinted that the upcoming album could be the first in a “trilogy.” Fans have speculated that ‘Dawn FM’ is the second installment, with a third album in the works to complete the trilogy.

The Weeknd teased ‘Dawn FM’ for a long time before it was released, and it features guest performances from Tyler, The Creator, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Lil Wayne. It also includes narration from actor Jim Carrey, who previously described the album as “deep and elegant.”

NME’s four-star review of ‘Dawn FM’ said: “If ‘Dawn FM’ hints at great personal change, musically it doesn’t shake things up quite as much. This isn’t a bad thing – the album is a coherent, cool cruise through dark synth-pop, pulling its references from the ‘80s (Giorgio Moroder, Michael Jackson, Depeche Mode, R.E.M., Talking Heads).

“Tesfaye has said he wants the album to provide a fantasy of escape and its sonics help bolster that feeling that you’ve been whisked off into a different world.”

The Weeknd has established a new Spotify record after the release of his new album, dethroning Justin Bieber as the artist with the most monthly listeners on the platform.
