The Weeknd has premiered the music video for Take My Breath, the first single from his follow-up album to After Hours. (this video does come with an Epilepsy warning!)
The single arrives after a week of teasing, which included an Olympics Promo and an aborted IMAX music video promo premiere.
Take My Breath shows The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – continuing the pulsating disco rhythms of his previous albums After Hours and Starboy.
The video, directed by Cliqua, follows Tesfaye as he descends into an underground party where he finds seduction, danger, and plenty of oxygen masks. It ultimately culminates in Tesfaye getting beaten up by a stranger.
On social media Tesfaye welcomed the arrival of Take My Breath. “THE DAWN IS HERE !!!” he wrote in all caps.
