Since winter I’ve been obsessed with The Weeknd’s music!  My favorite of his 2011 efforts (he had 3 mixtapes in 2011) was House of Balloons, so I was happy to see he just dropped a video for the sexy single Wicked Games, from that album! Check out the video above, I like how it was shot, the scene transitions are stellar, they already gave me ideas for an upcoming shoot.  Also I’ve been shooting a lot of black and white videos lately, so I’m particularly feeling it for that reason.  Lastly if you’ve checked out any of the single art, the video keeps with the aesthetic that The Weeknd has put out there from the beginning.  I’ve posted it before, and I’ll say it again….I LOVE those pics!

Make sure to look out for The Weeknd’s upcoming debut album Trilogy in the next couple weeks.

I do have a question though, if I own all 3 mixtapes and the new album only has 3 new songs, and the rest are from the mixtapes…do I got to buy the album? lol

I will, I will…he’s that good.  His music is sexy! The Weeknd is necessary in the current R&B scene.
