The Weeknd’s mastermind Abel Tesfaye somehow found time in between preparing his mixtape trilogy for major label release and debuting new songs on tour to direct this video for Thursday highlight “The Zone,” which features a lot of camera obscura effects, a forest of multicolored balloons, lens flare that would make JJ Abrams jealous, a woman dancing in lace lingerie, and Drake. It’s a fitting video – its film-noir, “Twin Peaks”-y vibe perfectly matches the track’s subtle sexy-creepy energy. Check it out.
