Watch: The Weeknd Releases ‘After Hours’ Short Film

Published: Wednesday 4th Mar 2020 by Rashad

Now that ‘After Hours,’ the title track of The Weeknd‘s forthcoming fourth studio album, has made an impressive 57 spot leap on the Hot 100 (as we reported here), the 31-year-old can boast three top 20 singles in as many months in support of the March 20th-due effort.

While Heartless’ hit the chart’s summit, its follow-up, ‘Blinding Lights,’ soared into the top 10 months later – a move that only increases pressure for ‘Hours’ (the song) to match its fare.  The singer’s latest bid to ensure such comes in the form of a short film, unleashed moments ago.

A culmination of the cinematic videos to precede it, ‘After Hours’ is a chilling ‘must see.’  Watch it inside:

        Duh! After Hours inspiration was obvious by the title! But the teens don’t know that movie. They know Stranger Things. How do you get both? Combine the two. Stranger Things is huge. It’s impact is everywhere! Are there extra terrestrials in After Hours? No. After Hours is a dark comedy! Why did he just look up at some supernatural lights in the sky? And I am not the first person to say what I saw from day 1 when he rolled it out…lol. If you think pointing out After Hours movie inspiration was anything to say right now….OMG! lol

        Look, it’s whatever lol…YOU saw Stranger Things…people can be watching the same movie and see and hear different things, so…I mean, I had somebody tell me that a certain song from a popular 80’s movie that’s on the soundtrack wasn’t used in the movie…they KEPT saying this…and I wanted to say, “Are you deaf? You got a bootleg copy or something? You alright? ? I mentioned After Hours cause when Abel stands in front of that building when After Hours comes on the screen, that’s a homage to the movie!
