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 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:
