Double Fantasy

The Weeknd

Album Double Fantasy (Single)

“Double Fantasy” is the lead single from the HBO series “The Idol” and its soundtrack, sung by The Weeknd (who also stars in the series) and features rapper Future.

The synthwave track sees The Weeknd discuss themes in “The Idol”, such as toxic relationships, sexual desire, wealth and fame. The track is extremely sexually explicit and had a hint of sleaziness to it, which is reminiscent of the themes and feeling of the series.

The official music video was released on the 21st April 2023 via The Weeknd’s YouTube channel, and features clips from the show that contain both The Weeknd and his co-star Lily-Rose Depp. In less than two weeks, the vide had a total of 10 million views.
