The Weeknd’s Starboy album has been murdering the charts since the day it dropped. Every single song on the album is taking over the top spots. Since the album was released The Weeknd has been talking about which artists have influenced this successful project.
Big names like Wu-Tang, Prince, 50 Cent, and more have have been named by The Weeknd as heavy influencers during his creation process. When 50 Cent heard that The Weeknd was looking to him for inspiration he geeked out a just little bit.
