R&B superstar The Weeknd has shared a new music video for “Until I Bleed Out,” the closing track for his latest studio album release After Hours. The music video takes place at an eclectic party in what appears to be a mansion filled with balloons, confetti, a chandelier and guests.
“Until I Bleed Out” shows the performer spinning around the party in a daze, as his face is shown bruised and bloodied, as he struggles to stay up. he is eventually carried by his guests as he hallucinates being in the middle of the desert alone, which matches the isolation he feels at the party.

This latest project was dedicated to a fan of the performer’s known as Lance, who was an early vocal supporter of the artist’s XO fan base.
“RIP Lance aka XOPODCAST. You were one of the true original backbones of my XO fan base.” the performer Tweeted prior to the album’s release. “Can’t believe I’m finding out about this today. I’m dedicating After Hours to you my friend.”
The artist also worked with Oneohtrix Point Never on the song “Repeat After Me (Interlude),” which also holds production credits from Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker.
