Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, has unveiled the epic new video for the track ‘Tell Your Friends’. Produced by Kanye West, the soulful track breathes an air of West’s own style, but incorporates the Motown, Michael Jackson-like vocals of Tesfaye.
Embedded with cushioned drums, snappy piano and jazzy harmonies, ‘Tell Yours Friends’ is another sneak peak as to what The Weeknd’s third record will be like.
The video for ‘Tell Yours Friends’ portrays Tesfaye being buried alive with a plastic bag on his head, singing lines such as “I’m a villain in my city, I just made another killing’. Another scene shows an angsty looking Tesfaye shooting a man dead at point blank range. Harsh.
Beauty Behind The Madness will feature appearances from the likes of Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeranand Labrinth and will be release on August 28th.
