Just like he promised fans through Twitter last night, The Weeknd premiered the new video for “Party Monster” today.

“Party Monster” is a track from the artist’s album Starboy, which was one of the hottest releases of last year. The video, directed by BRTHR, follows The Weeknd through a night out as he walks through streets of neon lights and clubs with beaming strobes. Amidst images of cars speeding into the camera, girls licking ice sculptures and everybody’s eyes glowing demoniacally, The Weeknd keeps his cool by chanting the hook:

I’m like, got up, thank the lord for the day
Woke up by a girl, I don’t even know her name
Woke up by a girl, I don’t even know her name

The song also features the lyric, “Angelina, lips like Angelina/ Like Selena, ass shaped like Selena,” that some people believe may have been hinting The Weeknd’s pursuit for the former Disney stay, Selena Gomez. The Weeknd and Selena Gomez have recently been sighted together in Santa Monica kissing and caressing.

Renewing the theme of lit-up crosses that first appeared in the singer’s “Starboy” video, the video for “Party Monster” flashes crosses intermittently as it progresses in its lightning montage style. As always, The Weeknd maintains his playboy lifestyle in the track and video and we can be sure the song will be getting dropped by DJs everywhere at the club this weekend.
