The Weeknd is playing in the big league.
Abel Tesfaye is set to take his live show to the O2 Arena later this year, while new album 'Kiss Land' (Clash review HERE) promises to be a genuine crossover moment.
But then, it's something he's worked for. The producer is able to pair up with genuine stars, with some of the biggest names in hip hop lining up for potential collaborations.
Taken from 'Kiss Land', new single 'Live For' boasts a guest verse from Drake. The MC's flow is typically delicate, matching the beautiful, smoky producer.
The video for the single has now gone live, featuring both The Weeknd and Drake skulking in the shadows. Beautifully shot yet shrouded in mystery, it's perhaps the perfect way to inaugurate Tesfaye's true period of stardom.
Watch it now.
