After recently releasing the single “Heartless” merely two days ago, which quickly moved to #1 on the charts in several countries worldwide, The Weeknd has returned with yet another single this week titled “Blinding Lights”. The song was recently teased in a Mercedez-Benz commercial at the beginning of the week, and the 80’s vibes on this song are in full effect. Fans compare the song to tracks played on the popular Netflix series Stranger Things, also saying this is a song they could see blaring down the highway at night when all the city lights are present. The artist and company uniquely collaborated in release for Mercedes’ new electric car EQC, which can be seen below.
Just three years after the release of Starboy in 2016, Canadian R&B-pop artist The Weeknd (also known as Abel Tesfaye) is back with a new single titled “Heartless”, giving a glimpse into the long-awaited Chapter 6 project. The last time we heard new music from Tesfaye was the surprise drop of the 6-song 2018 EP, My Dear Melancholy, with leading track “Call Out My Name” being released in May 2018 in acappella.
The rising alt-pop trio Chase Atlantic are back with their sophomore album, Phases, following their previous EP, DON’T TRY THIS (2019) and their self-titled debut (2017). The well-anticipated full-length to be released on June 28th via MDDN/BMG is certain to be one for the charts. With heavy influences from artists such as The Neighbourhood, Post-Malone, and The Weeknd, the band has only grown more as time progresses. Mitchel Cave, lead singer of the band stated “We went from staring at the same four walls for 18 years to seeing the whole world. We have to keep our heads—everything in moderation. Well, music-making should not be in moderation, but everything else. As long as we’ve got our headphones and laptops, we have all we need.”
JUST DROPPED! A fire new collab between Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd titlted “Lost in Fire” off Gestaffastein’s upcoming sophomore album Hyperion. The two previously worked together on The Weeknd’s last EP in March 2018, My Dear Melancholy, for the songs “I Was Never There” and “Hurt You”.
Previously released was an 11-second teaser video with Tesfaye and Gesaffelstein facing back to back with a snap of the beginning audio to the song presented, giving fans just a taste of the fire this song really is. At least, we think so. You can listen to the song on Apple Music, Spotify, and other streaming services. You can view the music video below:
