Watch: The Weeknd Releases Official Music Video For “Heartless”
The Weeknd first blessed the eardrums of his fans with the song, “Heartless” back in November and less than a week after its release, he has dropped an official music video.
The singer had last week released two new tracks, “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights”.
The Anton Tammi-directed video features Metro Boomin and takes place in Vegas. There’s a part of it where he licks a toad and, Fear and Loathing style, goes on a bad trip.
The video dropped yesterday December 3 and The Weeknd at a blurry night out in Las Vegas, stumbling out of a car into the casino, where he indulges in gambling, drinking and smoking. Halfway through the dizzying night, the singer comes face-to-face with a frog symbolizing drugs.
“Heartless,” as well as his other new single “Blinding Lights,” are the crooner’s first new music since the EP My Dear Melancholy arrived in March 2018 and his 2016 full-length LP Starboy.
The Weeknd is set to perform on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on December 5 and 6. Next week, on December 13, the Safdie brothers’ movie Uncut Gems, featuring a Weeknd cameo, hits U.S. theaters.
