Are Daft Punk laughing at The Weeknd?

By now, you may have heard that Daft Punk have teamed up with The Weeknd for his new single Starboy. Sadly, it isn't the genre-bending, world-changing song that suggests. In fact, it sounds like a typical Weeknd song with some vocoder on the top.

(Specifically, that vocoder segment features Daft Punk going "ha ha ha ha", which is presumably the noise they made as they took Abel Tesfaye's cheque and deposited it in their bank.)

Still, Starboy is a great launch to The Weeknd's new album, due in November. It's a lithesome, late-night groove with the Canadian star crooning about how absolutely brilliant he is ("out of your league," apparently). Coincidentally, he references Brad Pitt in the final verse: "Let a nigga Brad Pitt," he sings. "Legend of the fall took the year like a bandit."
