Starboy
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb' just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yeah
Main bitch outta your league too, ah
Side bitch out of your league too, ah

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face, man, I love my baby, ah
You talkin' money, need a hearing aid
You talkin' 'bout me, I don't see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

Every day a nigga try to test me, ah
Every day a nigga try to end me, ah
Pull off in that Roadster SV, ah
Pockets overweight, gettin' hefty, ah
Coming for the king, that's a far cry, ah
I come alive in the fall time, I
The competition, I don't really listen
I'm in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face, man, I love my baby, ah
You talkin' money, need a hearing aid
You talkin' 'bout me, I don't see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

Let a nigga brag Pitt
Legend of the fall, took the year like a bandit
Bought mama a crib and a brand new wagon
Now she hit the grocery shop looking lavish
Star Trek roof in that Wraith of Khan
Girls get loose when they hear this song
A hundred on the dash get me close to God
We don't pray for love, we just pray for cars

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face, man, I love my baby, ah
You talkin' money, need a hearing aid
You talkin' 'bout me, I don't see the shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy




Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

Overall Meaning

The Weeknd's song "Starboy" is a confident proclamation of his success and power, coupled with a warning to his enemies not to underestimate him. The first verse is filled with boasts of his wealth, from his P1 car to his expensive toys that are not on lease. He even claims to have made someone's whole year in just a week, showing off his ability to make money quickly. The chorus repeats the phrase "look what you've done, I'm a motherfuckin' starboy," emphasizing the theme of his rise to fame and power.


The second verse continues with more threats to those who try to test or end him, showing his toughness and readiness to defend himself. The line "the competition, I don't really listen" further highlights his disregard for anyone who stands in his way. The chorus is repeated again to reinforce the idea of his star power and success.


The bridge shifts focus to his lavish lifestyle, with the mention of purchasing a house for his mother and a new car. The line "we don't pray for love, we just pray for cars" showcases his materialistic mindset. The final chorus reinforces his status as a "starboy."


Overall, the song is a confident and braggadocious anthem, showing off The Weeknd's success and power.

What is 7K supposed to mean?

No, it's not a reference to Bruno Mars, because he's 17K higher.
But what IS it?
