The Weeknd released an epic track in collaboration with Daft Punk last week, after teasing the title of his new album and the album art work. A video for the new song dropped today on Vevo. Rejoice!
Before the video begins, we see the Weeknd as we know him – dreadlocks and all – being strangled with a plastic bag. Fast forward to his death, and Starboy appears, sans locs and in a very New York color palette ensemble (black, of course). The new version of the singer walks around smashing pretty much everything around as a painting of Daft Punk looms in the background. Once the damage is done, he rides off with a black panther in the passenger seat.
The Grant Singer directed video already received a MTV EMAs nomination for best video. You can check out the video below.
