The Weeknd fuels even more romance rumors with Angelina Jolie as he sings on latest album: ‘My new girl’s a movie star’
The Weeknd’s rumored romance with Angelina Jolie has made it on to his new album.
The pair sent tongues wagging last year after going on multiple dinner dates, and now the singer is fueling rumors even further with a lyric that declares: ‘My new girl’s a movie star.’
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter sings the line on the track Here We Go… Again off his latest album Dawn FM that was released Friday morning.
Dropping hints: The Weeknd released his new album Dawn FM on Friday morning, and in one song he appeared to sing about Angelina Jolie
It didn’t take long for fans to wonder if he is singing about the 46-year-old actress.
About one minute into the tune The Weeknd croons, ‘My new girl, she’s a movie star,’ hinting at his rumored romance.
The Canadian-born artist – real name Abel Tesfaye – has been linked to the iconic superstar since July when they were first seen together.
His new music seems to confirm his relationship with the mom-of-six. In another part of the track he builds on the speculation.
‘You weren’t touched by a man in so long. ‘Cause the last time it was way too strong,’ he vocalized in a line that might be in reference to Jolie’s 2016 split with ex Brad Pitt, 58.

Elsewhere on the album, in a song called Starry Eyes, the straight-forward songwriter sang, ‘I loved her right, make her scream like Neve Campbell / But I make her laugh, swear it cures my depressing thoughts / I told myself that I’d never fall, but here we go again.’
Despite their multiple romantic dinners in Santa Monica at Italian eatery Giorgio Baldi, the two have remained mum on their relationship.
This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has possibly referenced a famous girlfriend in his music.
In his 2018 song Call Out My Name he’s believed to have pined over ex Selena Gomez, 29. The telling line in the hit was, ‘I said I didn’t feel ‘nothing baby, but I lied / I almost cut a piece of myself for your life.’
Fans speculated that he was singing about Gomez’s kidney transplant, which she’s spoken openly about.
Latest project: The Weeknd released Dawn FM on January 7
On Thursday Tesfaye was the man of the hour as he celebrated the then-pending release of his latest music.
For a star-studded party in Los Angeles he donned facial prosthetics and grey hair to make him look older, keeping in line with the artwork for the cover of his album.
The star has been been pulling promotional stunts for the album for weeks. Back in November his face was covered in bandages at the 2021 American Music Awards.
