The Weeknd debuted his seductive new video for, “In the Night,” on Tuesday, and it stars none other than his lovely girlfriend, Bella Hadid, who plays the role of a stripper assassin. It’s surprising to see Bella take the stage here, due to the fact that she previously declined The Weeknd’s offer to be on the artwork for his album, Beauty Behind the Madness, in his October interview with Rolling Stone.
Now in the spotlight, the duo conducted what can best be described as a mysterious, vintage thriller. Reminiscent of an 80’s film, the 6:27 long VHS-esque video conveys the emotion that the song itself intends. Speaking of thriller, The Weeknd sounds like the living incarnate of Michael Jackson somehow on this track. According to a few fan opinions, people are saying, “The Weeknd is to Michael Jackson, what Kendrick Lamar is to Tupac.”
