Listen: The Weeknd Joins Lana Del Rey on “Lust For Love”

Past collaborators The Weeknd and Lana Del Rey reignite their chemistry on the lush ballad “Lust For Love,” off Del Rey’s forthcoming fifth studio album.

Over the ethereal production the two lovers sit on the H of the infamous Hollywood sign, while singing about their magnetic physical connection.

“Take off all your clothes,” sings Lana before Abel joins in: “They say only the good die young / That just ain’t right / ‘Cause we’re having too much fun / Too much fun tonight.”

During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Lana spoke about their latest collaboration. “We’ve done a couple songs already for his record, and we’ve been saying that my next record, whenever it came out, we really wanted to do something,” she said. “So I just thought he would be great for this song.”

The two singers have always complimented each other very well on record. In the past they have worked together on The Weeknd’s last two albums on the songs, “Prisoner” and “Stargirl Interlude.” Lana’s new album is scheduled to be released later this year.

Take a listen to “Lust For Love” below.

Rihanna, Kehlani, Sevyn, Tinashe & More Storm Coachella 2017

As if the desert wasn’t hot enough on the first weekend of Coachella 2017, some of R&B’s sexiest starlets stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While only a few of our favorites were actually on the bill, like Kehlani and NAO, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

Check out all their festive fun with the photos and video footage below.

Video: The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk – I Feel It Coming

The Weeknd is on his retro sci-fi ish with the brand new video for his Daft Punk assisted hit single “I Feel It Coming.”

The Starboy travels to an intergalactic fantasy world in the Warren Fu-directed visuals, which carry a’80s theme with VHS effects.  Performing the funky track on a rocky planet, Abel dances to the groove with some slick moves before his model love interest appears before him. However, a solar eclipse turns everything dark and turns his woman to stone. As Abel attempts to capture a snake who roams around them, he’s frozen in time as well.

In the end, The Robots show up in the midst of a snowstorm, they look down at something that appears to be buried. A pink neon glow shines through the snow and the “Starboy” theme plays.

The Weeknd is currently on his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” through Europe with Bryson Tiller and Lil Uzi Vert. The North American leg with Rae Sremmurd, 6LACK, and Belly kicks off April 25 in Vancouver.

Check out the video for “I Feel It Coming” below.

Video: NAV feat. The Weeknd – Some Way

Models galore fill the newly released visuals for The Weeknd‘s collaboration with XO producer-turned-artist, NAV.

The two recently dropped their joint song, “Some Way,” and now team up with director RJ Sanchez for the supermodel photo shoot themed video. As a crew of gorgeous woman are getting prepped for their close up, Abel drops in to drop his bars, that seemed directed to Justin Bieber, and his new relationship with Selena Gomez.

“I just hit a lick and I know you feeling some way / I just took that chick and I know you feeling some way / She just want a n**ga like me, you feeling some way,” he sings among the cast of models.

NAV joins the group for his auto-tuned verse and also appears to take a jab by saying “haters” will consider the song “wack,” a reference to Bieber’s comments about The Weeknd’s music.

“Some Way” is off NAV’s self-titled debut mixtape. The Weeknd is currently trekking across Europe on his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour.”

Peep the model-filled visual for “Some Way” below.

The Weeknd Releases H&M ‘Spring Icons’ Collection Video

The Weeknd is taking his style ideas to the masses with his new H&M collection. In their newly released “Spring Icons” campaign video, the Grammy-winner says he doesn’t believe in icons, but he does believe in iconic clothes.

“There are things that I love, people that I like, but the concept of an icon can be a cliche and I don’t like cliches,” he says. “Iconic clothes become icons for a reason. They’re fundamental if you live them.”

Filmed on Sunset Boulevard in front of the Hollywood Palladium theater and in a glass house nestled in the Hollywood Hills, the 90-second video has the singer sporting his iconic version of a suit; a black bomber jacket. “It’s a piece that men can wear every day, and it’s something I wear for any occasion,” The Weeknd told Billboard. “For me, bomber jackets are smart, but they are also street and have a lot of attitude.”

“When I chose the pieces for Spring Icons, I was thinking about the way men dress today. It’s about finding the right balance between sharp and casual, with all the details that count,” explains Abel.

The collection will be available on March 2 in every H&M store that carries menswear, as well as online. The Weeknd is currently touring Europe on his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall World Tour,” which will launch in North America in April.

Watch his “Spring Icons” video below:
