The Weeknd returns with yet another new music video centered in his ever-growing After Hours universe. This time he introduces a new take on his “Blinding Lights” mega-hit, premiering the visual for the Chromatics-assisted remix.

The release follows Major Lazer‘s dancehall-infused “Blinding Lights” offering. The original track claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 at the end of March, leading all 14 of his After Hours songs’ placements on the chart.

The video opens up with The Weeknd’s first person perspective of getting stomped out by multiple offenders in a nightclub, continuing his battered and bloody aesthetic first championed in his “Heartless” music video. The credits reveal that Chromatics edited the music video with logo animation by Jarred Hageman. There’s an undeniable electronic addition to the track with hypnotic retro synths and Ruth Radelet’s airy and mesmerizing lyrics assisting The Weeknd on the chorus. The visual ends with the superstar listening to an apologetic voicemail from an ex.

Watch the Chromatics’ “Blinding Lights” Remix video above and listen to The Weeknd’s After Hours (Remixes) EP below. In related news, The Weeknd shared a comedic American Dad song “I’m a Virgin”, taking a shot at his own persona.
