“The Morning” (Video)

    Here we have what is presumably another unofficial video from Toronto’s codeine-infused R&B act the Weeknd. Typically, anything but an official video is either super-low budget or just poorly executed to the point of nonsense. But like the one we saw for “What You Need,” the video for House of Balloons‘ “The Morning” is so impressive that it makes you wish it was the real thing. Even if it’s not, I doubt that the Weeknd will be too upset with the High 5 Collective‘s direction here. The visuals match the swirling sexiness of the track while shifting seamlessly between post-party frustration and late-night bliss. It’s especially appropriate today, considering many of you are no doubt suffering from a post-Memorial Day hangover.
