The Weeknd released After Hours earlier this month after previewing the album with several singles, including “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless.” The singer sampled Elton John on album cut “Scared to Love,” which John has praised since its release.
Speaking with Zane Lowe on Monday as part of a new daily interview series in which the Apple host checks in on top-tier artists during self-quarantine, John said, “I’m so blown away just to be part of his record. For someone my age and as someone who loves what he does, I’m so thrilled and I just love him.”
The Weeknd appeared on Saturday Night Live in early March (before the show ceased production due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and performed “Blinding Lights” and “Scared to Live.” He also appeared in a sketch called “On the Couch,” in which he formed a trio with SNL’s Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd for an R&B song about sleeping on the couch after a lovers spat.
