The Weeknd marks ‘Dawn FM’ anniversary with brand new music video

The Weeknd has released a new horror movie-inspired music video for “Is there someone else?” to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his latest album, Dawn FM.

On Saturday (Jan. 7), the XO vocalist released the cinematic visual, which appears to rework the sinister plot of the 2000 film American Psycho with Christian Bale in a stylish and promiscuous tale of love and excitement.

Ahead of the video’s release, The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) took to Twitter to express his excitement for the one-year anniversary of Dawn FM. “DAWN FM GOES 1 TONIGHT … top tunes list … GO,” he tweeted.
