Video: The Weeknd – “Belong to the World”

By ; July 15, 2013 at 6:39 PM 

The Weeknd is back with a dark new video and single — “Belong to the World.” Hit play above and get lost in the Anthony Mandler directed video that has Abel battling his demons in Japan (!?). Now does that beat sound familiar? It’s a sample one of our favorites — Portishead’s “Machine Gun.” Portishead’s Geoff Barrow took to Twitter today and stated that the track was sampled without the band’s permission. Sounds like they don’t like it:

It’s a real shame seeing as that Abel is a huge Portishead fan. When we had caught him performing at T5 in New York last year he was playing Portishead’s debut Dummy while the venue filled up and before his set.

The Weeknd has also announced some tour dates in support of his upcoming album.
