The project has several features, including Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, and Abel’s friend and neighbor, Jim Carrey. The two bonded over their shared astronomy hobby after discovering they lived two buildings apart.
Carrey has already heard the album and is a fan. “I listened to Dawn FM with my good friend Abel @theweekndlast night,” he tweeted. “It was deep and elegant and it danced me around the room. I’m thrilled to play a part in his symphony. ;^•.”
In response, The Weeknd thanked the actor for his involvement in the project. He called it “kismit” and said it was a “full circle” moment.
