One of the singles from ‘Starboy’ album, “Party Monster” was quite a special track considering the very lavish and explicit lyrics of it. We did a review of the lyrics on the track for the same reasons. The song gained a lot of attention and created the buzz needed for the album’s popularity. ‘Starboy’ album is different from The Weeknd’s previous works, as he empties his mind on the lyrical canvas in it’s rawest form. “Party Monster” is undoubtedly about the party lifestyle infused with drugs and booze and women for money. So the music video captures an entire sequence of lucid-dream sort of scenario throughout the video. The video was directed by BRTHR.
