The hit single belongs to his 2015 award-winning album 'Beauty Behind the Madness'.
The Weeknd is giving fans a never-before-seen treat! On Thursday, the 31-year-old singer dropped the original music video for his 2015 hit single "Can't Feel My Face", off his second studio album Beauty Behind the Madness.
The initial version, directed by Grant Singer, shows The Weeknd singing into a stand-up microphone for an uncaring audience at a nightclub. At one point, a listener tosses a lighter on stage, resulting in the crooner catching fire. Eventually, everyone gets out of their seats and dances.
The music video that ended up being released back in the day, however, follows The Weeknd and a love interest on a wild night out. The pair end up getting hot and heavy on the car ride home. According to Variety, a "shift in creative direction" led to the alternate version being dropped instead of the original.
Beauty Behind the Madness earned an Album of the Year nomination at the 2015 Grammy Awards, and also took home the best urban contemporary album trophy. In addition, "Can't Feel My Face" received several nominations, including record of the year and best pop solo performance.
The Weeknd is currently working on his upcoming fifth LP, which he referred to as "the album I've always wanted to make" during an interview with GQ. In addition, he's been teasing new music on the way.
Last month, the musician took to his YouTube channel to share a sneak peek at his forthcoming single. Titled The Dawn Is Coming, the video features a two-minute snippet of the anticipated song. Check it out here!
