  1. The title of the album, After Hours.
  2. What the album cover will look like.
  3. And the album release date, which is March 20.

After Hours is the follow-up to The Weeknd’s 2018 release, My Dear Melancholy.  Since then, The Weeknd teamed up with Travis Scott and SZA for their ‘Power Is Power’ collab, which is featured on the Game of Thrones soundtrack and he also had a cameo alongside Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems.

Back to Abel’s new record – if you take in the lyrics, they’re screaming BELLA HADID!  Check out the lyrics below.


[Verse 1]
Thought I almost died in my dream again (Baby, almost died)
Fightin’ for my life, I?couldn’t?breathe again
I’m fallin’?into new (Oh, oh)
Without you, gonna?swoon (Fallin’ in)
‘Cause my heart belongs to you
I’ll risk it all for you
I won’t just leave
This time, I’ll never leave
I wanna share babies
Protection, we won’t need
Your body next to me
Is just a memory
I’m fallin’ in too deep, oh
Without you, I’m asleep
It’s on me, only me, oh
Talk to me, without you, I can’t breathe

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 2]
My darkest hours
Girl, I felt so alone inside of this crowded room
Different girls on the floor, distractin’ my thoughts of you
I turned into the man I used to be, to be
Put myself asleep
Just so I can act closer to you inside my dreams
Didn’t wanna wake up ‘less you were beside me
I just wanted to call you and say, and say


[Verse 3]
Never comin’ through, uh
I was running away from facin’ reality, uh
Wastin’ all of my time on living my fantasies
Spendin’ money to compensate, compensate
‘Cause I want you, baby, uh
I’ll be livin’ in Heaven when I’m inside of you
It was definitely a blessing, wakin’ beside you
I’ll never let you down again, again

Oh, baby
Where are you now when I need you most?
I’d give it all just to hold you close
Sorry that I broke your heart, your heart
I said, baby
I’ll treat you better than I did before
I’ll hold you down and not let you go
This time, I won’t break your heart, your heart, yeah

I know it’s all my fault
Made you put down your guard
I know I made you fall
I said you were wrong for me
I lied to you, I lied to you, I lied to you (To you)
Can’t hide the truth, I stayed with her in spite of you
You did some things that you regret, still right for you
‘Cause this house is not a home




And catch The Weeknd on SNL on March 7!
