The Weeknd – “The Birds Part 1” | Fan-Made Video

The Weeknd‘s stock has risen rapidly since the release of debut mixtape House of Balloons earlier this year. The rising Canadian talent has achieved huge buzz whilst remaining exceptionally elusive (as seems to be the fashion these days), and lack of public presence hasn’t stopped a whole raft of fan-made videos for his various tracks popping up online. They range from genuinely artistic and original to distastefully pretentious and tend to feature naked and/or beautiful women in various states of dishevelment. It’s pretty appropriate given the tone of The Weeknd’s music.

This latest offering is inspired by “The Birds (Pt. 1)” taken from The Weekend’s latest release Thursday which dropped as a free download less than 48hours ago. No details about its origin as yet.
