The Weeknd has just dropped a cinematic music video for two songs set to be released on his Beauty Behind The Madness album this Friday: "Tell Your Friends" and "Real Life." Check it out above, via his official VEVO YouTube channel.
What can you say about these songs and this music video? The Weeknd is taking Michael Jackson's style of R&B and putting a dark twist on it with gangster lyrics about sex, drugs, and violence. Travi$ scott pointed out that Kanye West did production on "Tell Your Friends," which has a Yeezy touch and samples "Can't Stop Loving You" by Soul Dog. The "trill" outro segues into "Real Life" as The Weeknd speeds away in his car toward the end of the video. Very cool audio production makes you feel like you're in the car with him.
