The Weeknd’s been building something with his last three videos, a visual world that’s as nocturnal and trippy as the world he shows us on the newly GRAMMY-nominated Beauty Behind the Madness. Now “In the Night” will follow “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Tell Your Friends,” continuing the Weeknd’s adventure through a world of explosions, creepy characters and murder.
There’s not much we can glean from the trailer for “In the Night,” one of the most Michael Jackson–y and narrative-oriented songs on the album. Basically: A woman will shoot a slow-motion bullet through some glass. (Not exactly an easy time to get fired up about guns, but okay.) Idolator thinks it’s Abel’s girlfriend, model Bella Hadid.
