With just a slight delay of 14 months, OVOXO crooner The Weeknd debuts the music video for his Thursday mixtape cut, “Rolling Stone.” Much like the music itself, the visuals are very much minimalistic, getting up-close-and-personal with Abel Tesfaye as delivers his delicious vocals in a black-and-white setting. He’s also in the company of an assumably attractive female (her face is hidden for the duration of the clip), which is a given.
To accompany the fresh visual release, The Weeknd also unveils the artwork for his upcoming Trilogy release, a compilation of his three critically acclaimed mixtapes — House of Balloons, Thursday, Echoes of Silence — with a few bonus tracks thrown in. The LP is due out Nov. 13 via Universal Republic.
