The Weeknd’s smash hit album After Hours featured zero collaborations, but he made up for it with several remixes of his hit songs. The latest to rock our world is the new version of “Save Your Tears”, featuring his frequent partner in crime—Ariana Grande.
The animated music video for this remix shows The Weeknd’s After Hours persona engineering an animated cyborg version of Grande—high ponytail and all! The new version features Grande’s added verse and hears the duo synchronizing during the chorus.
The Weeknd and Grande are no strangers to releasing music together. Their first collaboration came in the form of the hit single “Love Me Harder”, which appeared on Grande’s second studio album My Everything. They later worked on the song “Off the Table”, from her latest album Positions.
Even before Grande jumped on the remix, “Save Your Tears” found significant success on the charts. It peaked at no. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the third no. 5 record from After Hours, following the chart-topping hits “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights”.
