A small teaser slash announcement of the music video for the single ‘Starboy’, it was enough to get the full clip to nominate in the category Best Video for the MTV EMA’s. The Weeknd had the ‘taster’ and in just a few hours before the rather remarkable nomination posted on his Instagram account. So it can go very fast in the muziekbizz., as it turns out. ‘What a mess’, sounds on Twitter.
