The Weeknd – “The Hills” Video

A bunch of new Weeknd tracks leaked yesterday that pointed towards a bigger, glossier sound for Abel Tesfaye, with songs produced by Max Martin and a decidedly Michael Jackson-inspired bend. “The Hills” — a song that he debuted at Coachella in April — is not from those sessions, and instead falls right in line with his most recent singles like “Often” and “Earned It.” It’s big-budget R&B with a flair for melodrama, and the new track is accompanied by a video that follows Tesfaye out of a crashed car and into an empty mansion. Check it out below.

“The Hills” looks like a one-off single, and is available on iTunes now.
