The Weeknd’s “Starboy” gets an exquisite Selenification in Raheem D’s mashup “The Heart Wants A Starboy” where he flawlessly pairs Selena Gomez’ “The Heart Wants What It Wants” with “Starboy.” While The Weeknd dominates most of the melodic territory, Selena’s vocals adds an irreplaceable steam to it and adds a smoky touch into The Weeknd’s high-pitch. Raheem D showcases his musical mastery (and A+ taste) by selecting The Weeknd’ tempo, rather than Selena’s laid-back tune, to create a dynamically throbbing mashup. We already like this better than the originals:
