The Weeknd Plays a Manic Ex-Lover in Gory ‘In Your Eyes’ Video: Watch

After releasing his deluxe edition of After Hours at midnight Monday morning (March 23), The Weeknd stormed back hours later with a bloody new visual for “In Your Eyes.”

Starring model Zaina Miuccia, “In Your Eyes” serves as a frightful thriller with The Weeknd settling into his role as the bloodthirsty ex-lover. From the get-go, Micuccia appears scared and disheveled with bloodstains all over her. As she desperately tries to run away to safety, The Weeknd winds up at every location with a knife in hand.

Fortunately for Miuccia, she gets the last laugh when she grabs an ax and slices the XO singer’s head off. She even begins hoisting it like a championship trophy while dancing in the club, signaling her victory.

“In Your Eyes” resides on The Weeknd’s fourth studio album After Hours, which also houses his Billboard Hot 100 charting singles “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights.” According to industry forecasters, the 14-track collection is off to a massive start, with early estimates rounding out to 400,000 equivalent album units.
