The Weeknd’s “Often” Video Is, of Course, Vaguely NSFW

​​The Weeknd’s new video for ​”Often” is a Weeknd video: dimly lit, nearly pornographic, affected.

August 21, 2014

The Weeknd's new video for "Often," a one-off single he released earlier this summer, is as Weeknd-y as they come. The dimly lit clip finds the singer caged-up in a sleek hotel room and surrounded by beautiful women in various states of undress. He's singing about all the sex he has, and yet, the women go neglected; he's much more interested the view out the window than their company. Because often, often, girls, he does this often. Next month, Abel will set out on a four-date mini-tour with ScHoolboy Q and Jhené Aiko. Check out dates for that below, and watch the vaguely NSFW video up above.

King of the Fall tour dates:

09/19 Brooklyn, NY - Barclays Center 
09/21 Toronto, Ontario - Molson Canadian Amphitheatre 
10/09 Los Angeles, CA - Hollywood Bowl 
10/10 San Francisco, CA - Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
