VIDEO PREMIERE: THE WEEKND | DIE FOR YOU
The Weeknd has dropped a music video for his song ‘Die For You,’ taken from his blockbuster 2016 album "Starboy." The music video arrived today (November 25) on YouTube. In a distinct homage to the sci-fi film "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" and Netflix show "Stranger Things," a young boy resembling The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – hides out in a garden shed, only to be found by one of the home’s residents, a young girl. A few months ago, The Weeknd made his return and signalled the start of his possible forthcoming album rollout when he unleashed his “Take My Breath” single. In September, he gave his fans another unexpected treat as he unveiled an alternate video for his “Can’t Feel My Face” mega-hit. That week marked the 6th anniversary of "Beauty Behind The Madness" that the song originally appeared on. His latest body of work, After Hours, was released during the first quarter of last year. He initially saw 14 tracks with a slew of matching visuals, all of which depicted The Weeknd as a character inspired by films like "Fear and Loathing Las Vegas," "Joker," and "Casino." The project also produced a few special editions, adding on remixes and collaborations with Lil Uzi Vert, Doja Cat, Chromatics, and Oneohtrix Point Never. "After Hours" became one of the most commercially successful albums of 2020.
