watch the music video for the weeknd’s “pretty”

the weeknd’s debut album kiss land is a hazy r&b trip that is a bit more uneven than his three original mixtapes, but abel tesfaye still has supreme control over the mood that his songs dictate.  with the music video for “pretty,” the first single to be dropped following the release of kiss land, tesfaye reminds us just how dark and sex-fueled that mood can be.  the first half is appropriately bleak, but then the video takes an unexpected turn into a graphic, sexual realm that has never been visually represented by the weeknd up until this point.  the video has a good amount of nudity, so if you’re in a compromising location, save the view for when you get home.
