TheWeeknd_KissLand_Video

When Abel Tesfaye, bka the Weeknd, dropped “Kiss Land” earlier this year, Amrit astutely pointed out markers of Tesfaye’s growth embedded into the track via a lighter, more celebratory touch in both the sound and the lyrics. But something else that is worth noting is that for anyone whose interests stretch throughout the blogosphere and heard something familiar with this tune, it’s unlikely your ears were deceiving you. Brooklyn producer Silky Johnson had a hand in crafting the track and its backbone can originally be heard on Main Attrakionz’s “Nothin Gonna Change.” The video version is slightly more lush than the original, but it doesn’t seem to be a case of foul play, anyway. Scratch that. There’s always foul play when it comes to the Weeknd, but only in his propensity for lustful deviance. And while the whole clip is shot to look like you’re watching fuzzy security camera tapes, it is still a bit unsafe for work. Check it out below.

Kiss Land is out this year.
