It’s only been a year since The Weeknd dropped his 2020 smash After Hours. But he says he’s already got his follow-up in the works and it sounds like it might be the flipside to that dark collection. He elaborated on the series of social media teases he’s posted over the last few weeks hinting at new music. If the last record is the after hours of the night, then the dawn is coming. The Weeknd didn’t actually discuss the project but we know we can’t wait. Up next on his schedule, The Weeknd will perform remotely at the May 11 Brit Awards and he’s double down on his promise to not participate in the Grammy Awards again.

The nearly 20-min video is full of some many random questions, all over the place so she reveals a little bit of everything about herself. As for the future, Eilish said she has a lot of ideas but for now she’s going to just keep them in her head.
