The Weeknd is continuing his assault on the mainstream and is starting to establish himself as a mainstay of the R&B world.
Having his steamy, sexy track, Earned It stuck in the head of every Fifty Shades of Grey fanatic has earned The Weeknd, born Abel Tesfaye, widespread acclaim and attention in 2015. The new video for The Hills is the latest in a string of new tracks from the Toronto native, and is keeping us fiending for even more. This new tune was first debuted as The Weeknd made appearances at festivals from SXSW to Coachella, and is riding a train of hype that is incredible for someone who has not released an album since the 2013 Kiss Land. The track itself had not been given an official release however until todays coupling with the music video. The Hills is a gloomy, spaced out track that is probably not the bedroom number that many are accustomed to, but there are all the signs of a sensual Weeknd tune, “I only love it when you touch me, not feel me/ when I’m fucked up, that’s the real me”.
The video itself is action packed, ablaze with fire, and shows that even a violent car crash will not stop The Weeknd from reaching an orgy with two beauties at the end of the video. Man, the things we do for love these days…
