Over the weekend, none other than The Weeknd dropped his third studio album, Starboy. Some of the album’s new collaborators include Daft Punk and rapper Future — but one familiar voice on the album is Lana Del Rey.

On the tune “Stargirl Interlude,” Del Rey does her thing: A moody, breathy, sexual fantasy deadpan.

So when she took to Instagram to celebrate The Weeknd’s success, of course she did a little song and dance to none other than “Stargirl Interlude”:

In a recent interview with radio personality Zane Lowe, The Weeknd had nothing but high praise for Del Rey, sharing:

The feeling appears to be mutual, given Del Rey’s Instagram shoutout. Of course, this isn’t the only time the two have collaborated; check out the chemistry on The Weeknd’s song “Prisoner,” off of his last album Beauty Behind the Madness:

I’m always so curious as to which people in the music industry collaborate with each other out of contract obligations — e.g. they’re on the same label. Meanwhile, it seems like The Weeknd and Del Rey are genuinely on the same artistic wavelength, and their partnership is just getting started.
