Jim Carrey honors PRINCE(r.i.p.) on the Weeknd's hauntingly poetic Dawn FM spoken-word piece

Carrey talks "Purple Rain" and existential crisis on '"Phantom Regret," a stark spoken-word poem from the Weeknd's new album.

Jim Carrey goes from comic to cosmic pondering on the Weeknd's new album Dawn FM.
The beloved actor co-wrote and performs "Phantom Regret" — a stark, haunting spoken-word poem — at the tail end of the pop star's latest LP, with lyrics that run the gamut from existential crisis to death and the afterlife with a notable reference to late icon Prince.
"If pain's living on when your body's long gone, and your phantom regret hasn't let it go yet, you may not have died in the way that you must. All specters are haunted by their own lack of trust. When you're all out of time, there's nothing but space," Carrey says on the track. "No hunting, no gathering, no nations, no race. And heaven is closer than those tears on your face. When the purple rain falls, we are all bathed in its grace."

As Carrey speaks, the Weeknd softly croons in the background, with eerie electronic production.

Jim Carrey(whom I worked with & was quite different than I expected him to be) is a real deep person despite his reputation.

The Weeknd(whom was privileged to meet his musical idol Prince(r.i.p.) ) dedicated his award to him which made me respect him 4EVER! His MUZIQ is VERY honest.
