Republic RecordsThe Weeknd suffers the consequences of an all-night bender in his new “Blinding Lights” video, which he dropped Tuesday.
The clip continues the storyline of his “Heartless” video, following an uninhibited night of partying at the fictitious Heartless Hotel in Vegas.
The three-time Grammy winner speeds through the city in a convertible in the video, but his fun abruptly ends when two men assault him and leave his face bloody. The clip ends with The Weeknd alone in the street, desperately trying to hitch a ride.
“Blinding Lights” was released November 29 and is featured in the ad campaign for the all-electric Mercedes-Benz 2020 EQC SUV.
The Weeknd will perform “Blinding Lights” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! airing Wednesday at 11:35 p.m./10:35pm CT on ABC.
