The Weeknd has released two new animated videos this week – one for a new single called ‘Snowchild,’ and another to celebrate the 10th anniversary of XO.

 

The music video was directed by Japan’s first Black-owned animation studio, D’ART Shtajio Studio, and it shows Abel taking a journey back in time, where we see his past-alter-egos.  The animated video also includes various cityscapes like L.A., Tokyo and of course, his hometown of Toronto.
