see the weeknd’s newest, creepiest video, "tell your friends"
We’ve had to admit we were wrong. “Tiny Backpack” isn’t actually the song of the summer. It’s The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face”—a fantastic club track with a fantastically creepy video in which the former Abel Tesfaye burns like a marshmallow in a campfire.
Now he’s dropped another chilling vid, this one for the smooth, slow, and angrily sexy “Tell Your Friends.” Showcasing third release off his still-upcoming Beauty Behind the Madness, the “Tell Your Friends” mini-flick features The Weeknd burying himself in the high desert, singing about meaningless sex, and shooting a returning actor from the “I Can’t Feel My Face” and "The Hills" videos point blank. It ain’t for the kids.
The video sports a preview of “Real Life,” another track also off of Beauty Behind the Madness, which finally, finally hits iTunes this Friday.
