The Weeknd share video for "Often," play shows (2014)

The Weeknd has released the highly anticipated video for his recent summer hit “Often.” The single, which upon release immediately shot to the #1 spot on the Billboard Twitter Real-Time Chart, currently sits in the top 10 on multiple iTunes R&B charts around the world and saw a fury of spins via Soundcloud where it’s reached nearly 10 million hits since being released at the end of June.
Moreover, it’s currently the #1 “Most  Added” at both Rhythmic and Urban radio formats. “Often” has been lauded by the likes of MTV, Stereogum, Revolt, Buzzfeed, Hypetrak and more and is just a taste of what’s to come.
Directed by Sam Pilling, the video takes place in a surreal hotel environment profiling an after party that never ends. Check out the video HERE.
