Video: The Weeknd – ‘Twenty Eight’

The Weeknd

The Weeknd lets us into his mind in the dark and sexual video for “Twenty Eight,” the latest single off his album Trilogy. While conducting a foreign interview, the Canadian crooner is unable to focus because he is haunted by visions of his ex-girl. The Nabil-directed clip (Kanye West, Frank Ocean) was shot in Eastern Europe and features topless strippers and girl-on-girl action, with the mysterious undertone which has become his signature.

    @Amir, Even though I 100% agree, I don’t think it’s appropriate to compare the two artists, I don’t see that many similarities.

    He loves his WHITE/EUROPEAN GIRLS! Unnecessary nudity in my opinion, but nice visuals overall.

    Amazing song! The Ex looks like Kendall Jenner.

    Not understanding why people like him. He sounds so shaking and annoying.

    @LOLatHaters, it’s probably because people have different tastes, man. And confirmation biases, belief perseverance etc. etc.

    For the negative comments and “could’ve been a better video”, You aren’t ready for The Weeknd. This video’s has a meaning. All his songs express what he feels. The video shows how he compares his own music to good sex. ‘This house is not a home to you’ shows how he feels about hitting the mainstream. The mainstream is not his home, the underground is, he feels like a stranger to all this. ‘But who keeps calling on your phone?’ depicts how mainstreamer’s demand for him and how labels and the media want a piece of him, that’s how he’s brought up in the video with an interviewer. For the mainstreamers, leave him to us.. You don’t deserve real talent. FAN SINCE 2010. XOTILWEOVERDOSE.

    @MJL, that’s what I’ve been talking abOut! I’m afriand he is gunna lose his flow if he goes mainstream. The weeknd is for those who truly understand heartbreak and betrayal to tell the truth I feel weird about hearing other Ppl play his music cuz his songs helped me thru a tough ass break up with my ex so it feels personal cuz I’m like you don’t know what he means you’re just playing his song because it’s the new hip thing to do and it has a nice melody… I wand Abel to succeed but I don’t want him to loose himself over ignorant mainstreamers

    His music is hard to diggest, it is not pop music, so that’s why many of you doesn’t feel him yet. But you will see soon enough why people like him.

    The video was shot in Romania and those are all professional models, not strippers. The girl sitting on the bed is Laura Giurcanu and she won the romanian Next Top Model.
