The Weeknd Finally Releases ‘Blinding Lights’ & ‘Heartless’

The Weeknd Blinding Lights Heartless:“Heartless” is The Weeknd’s first track since 2018’s My Dear Melancholy,. It features braggadocious lyrics from Abel, who makes his money and careless lifestyle known to a specific person, possibly on-and-off-girlfriend Bella Hadid.

The track’s release was first teased on November 25th, 2019, with Tesfaye posting to his Instagram for the first time since its reactivation.

Judging off of his tweets, it was obvious that The Weeknd was going to return for Chapter VI soon but some concrete news came when a German Mercedes commercial featured a snippet of a new song of his called ‘Blinding Lights‘ that would supposedly be out this week. Then, the cover art for that song and an entirely different one called ‘Heartless‘ surfaced online around the time when The Weeknd announced on social media that fall would officially start tonight.

Earlier in the day, Abel announced that the latest episode of MEMENTO MORI on Beats 1 will be going live on Tuesday night and on it, he was likely going to premiere these two new singles officially. Unfortunately for him, YouTube Music jumped the gun a little bit and they were made available earlier than anticipated for some.

You can listen to both songs via the given links before they become officially available on streaming services in a couple of hours. ‘Blinding Lights’ definitely gives us Prince vibes from late 80s while ‘Heartless’ is more titled on the Urban side. It is produced by Metro Boomin.

Lyrical Excerpts

The Weeknd Blinding Lights Heartless

[Verse 1] Never need a bitch, I’m what a bitch need (Bitch need)
Tryna find the one that can fix me
I’ve been dodgin’ death in the six speed
Amphetamine got my stummy feelin’ sickly
Yeah, I want it all now
I’ve been runnin’ through the pussy, need a dog pound
Hundred models gettin’ faded in the compound
Tryna love me, but they never get a pulse down

[Chorus] Why? ‘Cause I’m heartless
And I’m back to my ways ’cause I’m heartless
All this money and this pain got me heartless
Low life for life ’cause I’m heartless
Said I’m heartless
Tryna be a better man, but I’m heartless
Never be a weddin’ plan for the heartless
Low life for life ’cause I’m heartless
