Grammy-award-winning artist, Elton John, says he is “fascinated” by The Weeknd’s writing process.
John says he met with The Weeknd when he was in Los Angeles when the pandemic began.
The two stars met at the home studio of pop star Charlie Puth and ended up working on a song together.
“I went in the studio and wrote something with the Weeknd when I was there,” Elton told The Guardian.
He says he was amazed by The Weeknd’s writing style.
“It was fascinating to see the way he works. I write songs from start to finish, I’m old-fashioned; these people take bits of melodies and make a collage. Songwriting doesn’t have to be the same old form of songwriting,” he said.
However, he says he is not sure whether The Weeknd will release the song.
“Whether he’ll release it or not, I don’t know,” said Elton.
