When The Weeknd warned us last year that “The Dawn is Coming,” he surely wasn’t wrong! Thus, his domination of pop in 2020-21 with After Hours and Superbowl performance was only the start! His latest album Dawn FM ups the ante as Abel channels his brand of cathartic hedonism into 80s-Esque retro funk. With the After Hours til Dawn tour underway, the Weeknd drops a new music video & remix to ‘How Do I Make You Love Me.
The Dawn Gets Darker In This New Video
Following ‘Sacrifice’ and ‘Out of Time,’ this music video continues the singer’s macabre aesthetic as his persona plays with death. Hence, this video is reminiscent of Akira’s body horror sequences with Abel violently morphing into a childlike form & escaping beasts. Possibly symbolizing his struggle between celebrity and honest relationships, the video captures the Weeknd’s moral turmoil across his recent work. As seen before, we’re fascinated by Abel’s creativity & it’s beautifully haunting to see the transparency in his music!
This New Remix Keeps Us On The Dance Floor
Alongside the new video, ‘How Do I Make You Love Me’ gets the remix treatment, courtesy of Sebastian Ingrosso & Salvatore Ganacci. Indicative of Weeknd’s collaborations with Swedish House Mafia, which Ingrosso is part of, the remix is relentless. Pounding with heavy house drums, this version might send an entire rave into a meltdown.
With the release of this music video & remix, there’s no reason to deny that 103.5 Dawn FM will keep you tuned in with intrigue.
