The Weeknd Drops "Tell Your Friends"

Last night The Weeknd debuted the video for his latest, Kanye West-produced track, "Tell Your Friends," and it's further evidence the Toronto crooner's rebirth is well underway.

The dark storyline shows The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) burying himself alive, dancing through the desert and effortlessly killing someone else, before making his escape in a getaway car. Sounding old school Weeknd-meets-grungy Yeezus, the jazzy "Tell Your Friends" is a statement about his evolution, but also his allegiance to who he's always been: "that n—a with the hair/ singing ’bout popping pills, f—ing b-itches." 

The new track, along with previous singles "The Hills," 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack contribution "Earned It" and pop gold "Can't Feel My Face," comes ahead of his anticipated second release, Beauty Behind The Madness, which finally drops this Friday.
