The Weeknd has shared the video for "Blinding Lights," which shows the aftermath of his Las Vegas exploits previously seen in the "Heartless" visual. The singer takes a joyride through the city and is serenaded by a woman before a run-in with some not-so-friendly individuals. Check out the Anton Tammi-directed video for "Blinding Lights" up top.
Both songs dropped back in late November, with "Heartless" reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Blinding Lights" hit No. 11 and took a bit of the spill down the chart in recent weeks, but is starting to make a climb back up with daily streams on Spotify nearly doubling that of "Heartless." This video should give the song an extra boost.
The Weeknd has yet to formally announce his next album, though it wouldn't be a stretch to assume it's on the way given the recent push of these singles. While no concrete details are available on what to expect, The Neptunes' Chad Hugo was recently interviewed by Clash, where he mentioned the legendary production duo had done some work with the singer. "We were just in the studio with The Weeknd, and that sounds really futuristic," he said.
On Wednesday night, Weeknd will perform "Blinding Lights" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
