Diamond-selling singer The Weeknd debuted his latest video “Blinding Lights” on Tuesday (January 21). The Anton Tammi-directed short film continues the plot from his “Heartless” visual.
The gory project displays The Weeknd racing and dancing through the West Coast streets. Eventually, he approaches a lounge singer — played by Miki Hamano — and causes the club bouncers to intervene.

Although The Weeknd has yet to formally announce he’s releasing a new album, his two back-to-back singles could be a sign of a new project. The XO artist hasn’t released an LP since 2016’s StarBoy.
