The Weeknd has released an official music video for “Party Monster,” a track from his 2016 album, Starboy. Watch it above, courtesy of his YouTube.
Attractive women and fast cars are featured, as well as The Weeknd singing the track. The video is fast-paced with quick moving scenes and imagery, so be warned if you’re sensitive to those kind of things.
Set to a menacing dark wave sound, “Party Monster” has The Weeknd praising his life with all its luster and exploits. Lana Del Rey’s contribution to the track is a soft-sung whisper that heightens the sinister atmosphere of the track. Her repetition of “paranoid” brings contrast to Weeknd’s lyrics of enjoying the party life.
The timing of the video release is pretty funny considering the line, “Ass shaped like Selena,” because yesterday The Weeknd’s canoodling with Selena Gomez became a tabloid story — although that lyric most likely refers to legendary singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, who was tragically murdered in 1995.
