“What You Need” (Video)



    We’re still no closer to finding out who’s behind the Weeknd, and this video for the House of Balloons track “What You Need” isn’t going to shed any light on that matter. But it makes for a perfect accompaniment to the after-party-comedown feel of the song, and there’s even a nod to the mixtape art when one of the central characters slumps into a shower cubicle and let’s a balloon fly up to the ceiling. Clearly the central aesthetic of this project is being carefully mapped out, which only makes it more fascinating. Also, this still sounds like one of the tracks of 2011. Check it out above.
