The Weeknd’s controversial series The Idol season will wrap up after just five episodes, and before the premiere of the final episode on Sunday, July 2, Abel Tesfaye has shared two more songs from the soundtrack. Check out ‘Like a God’ and ‘False Idols’ below.
The Weeknd has been sharing music from the show on a weekly basis. Previously, he unveiled ‘World Class Sinner / I’m a Freak’ (with Lily-Rose Depp), ‘The Lure’, ‘Double Fantasy’ (with Future), and ‘Popular’ (featuring Madonna and Playboi Carti), ‘A Lesser Man’, ‘Take Me Back’, the Moses Sumney collab ‘Get It B4’, ‘One of the Girls’ (featuring Blackpink’s Jennie), and a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’.
HBO had ordered The Idol as a six-episode series. According to TVLive, a source said “the season ended up being five episodes when it was all said and done after Sam [Levinson] took over and made significant changes. The story only ended up requiring five.”
