The Weeknd has officially released his video for the song “In the Night”, and naturally he cast his supermodel girlfriend Bella Hadid to be the star.
The video was directed by BRTHR and runs over six minutes long, playing out like a movie that is darkly action packed and 80’s themed. The video was shot in Brooklyn, New York.
It’s been a big week for the singer, with the Grammy nominations being released and all. The Weeknd is one of the top three leaders of the nominations this year, alongside Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar.
The Weeknd has been nominated in seven categories this year, including Album of the Year and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Beauty Behind the Madness, both Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Can’t Feel My Face”, and both Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance for “Earned It (50 Shades of Grey)”.
The 2016 Grammy Awards will be held on Monday February 15, 2016.
Although the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show was recorded ahead of time, on Tuesday night the show aired which featured a performance by the Weeknd as well which made his week appear even busier.
Somehow the success doesn’t seem to be going to the 25 year-old’s head. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he said:
“I’m not known as the greatest singer right now, but I’m also not known as the guy who f–king sucks, you know?”
That’s one way to put it. He also admitted that he’s only just starting to experiences some changes from his fame.
“I just started being fancy, to be honest. Like, I just started learning how to pronounce what I’m wearing.”
