THE WEEKND AND DAFT PUNK REPORTED TO BE WORKING TOGETHER
The Weeknd is reportedly working with Daft Punk on new music. An executive from Republic Records, the label The Weeknd is signed to, confirmed the news during a "hitmakers roundtable" hosted by Billboard in July. Executive VP and head of urban A&R Wendy Goldstein was asked what artist she'd like to work with, as Pitchfork reports. "Well, actually, we have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk, and I've always been a massive Daft Punk fan," she said. "This is the first time I've been involved with an artist who's going to go and work with them."
