The Weeknd Hosts Raunchy Hotel Party in ‘Often’ Music Video
By Scott T. Sterling
Breakout R&B star The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) is known for his sex- and drugs-minded lyrics, and he brings that hazy, lascivious nature to the music video for “Often,” a recently released single.
Set in a high-end hotel room with various items of women’s clothing strewn about the place, the clip features the singer surrounded by a bevy of beautiful women in various stages of undress lounging around, although this there is no explicit nudity anywhere in the clip. At one point, two women in lingerie make out on the bed while two more leave the room as room service arrives with more champagne.
The Weeknd also highlights his line of cut and sew merchandise, sporting a spiffy letter man jacket emblazoned with his readily identifiable “XO” logo.
