The Weeknd has released a new horror movie-inspired music video for “Is There Someone Else?” to celebrate the one-year anniversary of his most recent album, Dawn FM.
On Saturday (January 7), the XO vocalist unleashed the cinematic visual, which appears to rework the sinister plot of the 2000 film American Psycho starring Christian Bale into a stylish and promiscuous tale of love and suspense
Ahead of the video’s release, The Weeknd (real name is Abel Tesfaye) took to Twitter to express his excitement for the one-year anniversary of Dawn FM. “DAWN FM TURNS 1 TONIGHT … list the best tunes… GO,” he tweeted.

Retweeting a tweet from Buzzing Pop, The Weeknd also acknowledged another new achievement after becoming the third artist overall and first Black artist in Spotify history to have 10 songs each with over one billion streams.
Last month, The Weekend celebrated a another milestone, this time for his hit single “Blinding Lights,” which recently became the highest-streamed song on Spotify in history after reaching the threshold of more than three billion streams.
Additionally, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) awarded the Canadian singer a diamond plaque last month for his 2015 single “Can’t Feel My Face,” making The Weeknd the third solo artist and fourth artist overall to achieve four diamond certifications. He is currently tied for second place on the all-time list for most diamond plaques with Post Malone and Imagine Dragons.
The Weeknd is also the first Canadian artist to score at least four diamond plaques, while his fellow Toronto artist Drake currently has three
Elsewhere, the Canadian hitmaker has managed to take his talents to the big screen as his new single, “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength),” helped ramp up the hype of director James Cameron’s latest blockbuster fantasy film, Avatar: The Way Of The Water soundtrack.
