Neve Campbell reacts to The Weeknd’s surprise shout-out on his new album Dawn FM

Neve Campbell’s new Scream reboot is the current top-grossing movie, but the actress also has a surprising connection to one of the year’s biggest albums: The Weeknd‘s Dawn FM.

The 48-year-old actress was a guest on CBS’ The Late Late Show With James Corden on Wednesday, when she was asked about the shout-out.

Her name-drop comes in The Weeknd’s song Here We Go… Again where he sings, ‘My new girl, she a movie star / I loved her right, make her scream like Neve Campbell,’ which Campbell responded to on Corden.

‘How crazy is that? It’s pretty crazy,’ Campbell said, before admitting that she was largely unaware of the 31-year-old singer.

‘Well at first, my publicist told me and she said The Weeknd and I was like, “Wait, which weekend? Last weekend?” I had no idea what she was talking about,’ Campbell admitted.

‘And then I realized, “Oh, the guy who played at the Super Bowl. That guy!” Fellow Canadian. How cool,’ she said.

Both Campbell and The Weeknd (real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye) were born in the Canadian province of Ontario, with the singer raised in Toronto and Campbell raised in Guleph, west of Toronto.

Corden joked that The Weeknd would be ‘very disappointed’ if he learned she described him as, ‘the guy from the Super Bowl,’ as Campbell said with a laugh, ‘I’m just so bad at pop culture.’

The actress also talked about the new Scream film, which hit theaters last weekend, more than 25 years after the franchise launched in 1996.

When asked if there was any ‘reticence’ in returning to the franchise, Campbell immediately said there was, because original Scream director Wes Craven passed away in 2015.

‘Wes, our director, was the reason these movies were as successful as they are and the franchise is as long as it’s been,’ Campbell said.

She added she wasn’t sure if, ‘anyone was able to do it as well,’ but she praised new directors Tyler Gillett and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin wrote her a letter.

‘They said they became directors because of Wes Craven. They had made their brilliant movie Ready Or Not because of Scream and they really wanted to do right by him and honor him, and that felt good,’ Campbell said. 

Scream opened in theaters lasts weekend, debuting atop the box office with an impressive $30.3 million.

Campbell will next be seen in a TV series adaptation of the 2011 movie The Lincoln Lawyer.
