Picture this: you’re a pretty successful dude like The Weeknd. You make a new album, and people seem to like it…a lot. Then, some guy named Elton Hercules John weighs in. Sorry, that’s Sir Elton John to you and me.
Oh, and did we mention that The Weeknd sampled some of his music on the album?
Says Sir Elton: “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.”
So yeah, if you’re The Weeknd, you’re probably feeling pretty good about yourself right now.
Speaking of feeling pretty good, here’s one more thing Elton John has to say that we could all listen to right now: “Every cloud has a silver lining. Maybe this will bring people together and be far more thoughtful about each other in a world where we’re so selfish, me included. And it gives us time to reflect on what life’s all about. And life is about love and sharing and generosity of spirit and coming together as one I hope will be the result of this.”
