There is no doubt that The Weeknd’s Chapter VI will come to live soon, the multi-talented singer and songwriter delivers Blinding Lights, his second single for today following the release of his Metro Boomin and ILLANGELO-produced single “Heartless” earlier this week.
On the ’80s-inspired track, Abel calls out for a lover over a synth-heavy instrumental. “I’m blinded by the lights / No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch,” he sings.
Earlier this month, the Canadian R&B superstar shot a music video on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Abel also stars in a commercial for Mercedes-Benz’ EQC, which is soundtracked by “Blinding Lights.”
Next month, the Weeknd will appear alongside Adam Sandler in the upcoming crime film, Uncut Gems, which will open in theaters on December 13th.
