When The Weeknd recorded the track for Beauty Behind The Madness
, he was joined by Lana Del Rey - the only woman featured on an otherwise completely male album. The Weeknd told Pitchfork
: "Me and Lana have been friends for a long time. I've inspired her, she's inspired me. I feel like we've always been talking to each other through our music. She is the girl in my music, and I am the guy in her music. It's just this ghostly collaboration that feels the most natural on the whole album."
