AceShowbiz - The Weeknd's new collaboration with French producer Gesaffelstein, "Lost in the Fire", has gotten a music video treatment just hours after its release. The collaborators shared the visuals, which was directed by Manu Cossu, on Friday morning, January 11.
The full version of the music video is just as minimalistic as the brief teaser which was released this week. It sees the Canadian crooner showing some slick moves in an all-black setting alongside the producer, who is disguised in glossy black paint, as he sings the verse to the song. There are other things like a statue and a white rose inside the space, but they all soon turn black within seconds.
"I'm tired of being home alone/ I used to have a girl a day/ Yeah, I want you to stay," The Weeknd croons over the midtempo beat. "You said you might be into girls/ You said you're going through a phase/ Keepin' your heart safe."
Following the release of the song, fans have begun speculating that The Weeknd might be dissing Drake on the track due to the line, "And I just want a baby with the right one/ 'Cause I could never be the one to hide one." Many think that the "Starboy" hitmaker was taking shots at his fellow Canadian musician for hiding his child, Adonis Graham.
Further fueling the speculation was Pusha T, who has been beefing with the "God's Plan" hitmaker for some time now. Replying to The Weeknd's tweet which promoted the music video, "The Story of Adidon" spitter posted three fire emojis to seemingly express his love for the song. Naturally, fans were convinced that his positive review was heavily influenced by the alleged diss.
"Moral of this tweet: An enemy of my enemy is my friend," one fan quipped, while another replied to his tweet with a GIF of someone saying, "Petty is my favorite color."
