As it pops up reach the cease of The Weeknd‘s temperamental fourth LP After Hours, synthpop ballad “Put Your Tears” feels perhaps the most acceptable to the album’s title of any of its tunes. Or no longer it is extra hangover than celebration, despite the true fact that its beautiful, funky sonics (and eventual robotic vocalizations) kind the roughly pop turn producer Max Martin has made a profession out of.
It’s miles wise, then, for Ariana Grande to hop on the remix, out as of late (April 23), and for her contributions to leave the track even extra gorgeous. What’s extra pretty is the track’s accompanying recent moving video, which finds an moving Weeknd growing his bear Grande out of spare aspects in an underground lair.
The clip, directed by Jack Brown and produced by London animation studio Blinkink, fuses The Weeknd’s chaotic, stylish After Hours persona with Grande’s fembot iconography she leaned carefully into for Positions, her sixth album that dropped in October 2020. Or no longer it is an extraordinarily good match.
This isn’t always the first time Abel Tesfaye has been a sketch, either. Last year, he regarded on TBS’s American Dad to accelerate fun at his intercourse-fueled persona and “admit” to if fact be told being a virgin; his 2020 “Snowchild” video recruited Japan’s D’ART Shtajio animation studio to turn him into an anime protagonist as effectively.
Strive the spiffy recent video above, then revisit Ari and Abel’s earlier collabs: “Esteem Me Extra primary” and “Off the Desk.”
