Neve Campbell Says It’s “Cool” To Be Name-Checked On The Weeknd’s New Song Even Though She Has No Idea Who He Is

Neve Campbell found it "pretty crazy" that "the guy from the Super Bowl", The Weeknd, mentioned her on his latest album.

The Scream actress is named-dropped by the 31-year-old megastar on his track 'Here We Go… Again’ on Dawn FM.

The line goes: “I loved her right, make her scream like Neve Campbell.”

​​​​​​​And the 48-year-old star — who reprised her role as Sidney Prescott in Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s latest film in the iconic horror franchise — confessed that she had "no idea" who her publicist was talking about when she was informed until it clicked.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she said: “How crazy is that? It’s pretty crazy.

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

“And then I realised, ‘Oh, the guy who played at the Super Bowl! That guy!' How cool."

The Weeknd — whose real name is Abel Tesfaye — headlined the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show in 2021.

James then quipped: “I can only think he’ll be really disappointed if he knows that you described him as the guy from the Super Bowl, given he’s arguably one of the biggest and best-selling artists of his generation.”
