FKA twigs has unveiled her new collaboration with The Weeknd, titled “Tears In The Club.”
The song, which Twigs teased earlier this week, has a more contemporary pop sound than the singer usually delivers, but still maintains the etherealness and distortion for which she’s become known.
The release of the song is accompanied by a haunting music video, in which Twigs dances in a nightclub under flashing strobe lights, before performing for The Weeknd in a large specimen tank while he watches on in tears. Finally, the video climaxes with a giant version of Twigs chasing down The Weeknd, before she lays in the rain in silence. You can check the video out below.
The singer returned last month with new track “Measure Of A Man”, which features Central Cee and appears in upcoming film The King’s Man.
The Weeknd, meanwhile, released his latest album After Hours in March 2020. Its second single “Blinding Lights” became the biggest US Billboard Hot 100 song of all time last month.
He then shared the first taste of his forthcoming fifth studio effort over the summer with “Take My Breath”. He has since teamed up with Swedish House Mafia and Post Malone on “Moth To A Flame” and “One Right Now” respectively.
Last month, The Weeknd said his new album was almost complete, revealing that the “only thing missing is a couple [of] characters that are key to the narrative”.
In other Weeknd news, Vevo, the world’s leading music video network, released part two of its annual year-end look back on music video viewership. Both worldwide and in the U.S., Abel Tesfaye’s “Save Your Tears” tops the list with 615M views globally, and 102.9M views in the U.S.
Released at the top of the year, “Save Your Tears” popularity was fueled by The Weeknd’s massively successful Superbowl performance, a slew of Billboard Music Awards, Juno Awards, and BRIT Awards wins and more, resulting in a standout year for the star.
