The Weeknd gave everyone an extra helping of his new music era last night, with the Thanksgiving day release of his second single, “Blinding Lights.” While “Heartless” lyrically explored how The Weeknd went back to his old playboy ways following his split from Selena Gomez, “Blinding Lights” seems to address how fast he got over playing the field because of the reemergence of his on-off girlfriend Bella Hadid.

“Blinding Lights” is a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd that serves as the second single of his upcoming fourth studio album. It was released on November 29, 2019, two days after the release of “Heartless” and on Black Friday.
After having been absent from social media for five months, the singer returned to Instagram on November 20, 2019 and posted six days later on November 26, 2019. He previously announced a project titled Chapter VI in June 2019. On November 24, 2019, a Mercedes Benz commercial first aired on German TV featuring a clip of “Blinding Lights”

 

 

The Weeknd recently declared that he would “never need a bitch” because he’s “what a bitch needs,” but he seems to have changed his tune, literally, on his new single, “Blinding Lights.” Over moody synths, Abel details heartbreak over a lost lover and talks about the emptiness of single life.

“Blinding Lights,” the second single from his upcoming sixth studio album. The ’80s-sounding disco song — which was first heard featuring in a new Mercedes-Benz ad — follows the release of the sexy, pulsing ‘Heartless’ earlier in the week. The upcoming album will be the first solo recored from the Grammy-winning artist since the release of My Dear Melancholy last year.

Blinding Lights – The Weeknd

 

[Intro]
Yeah

[Verse 1]
I’ve been tryna call
I’ve been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe
I’m going through withdrawals
You don’t even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
I look around and
Sin City’s cold and empty (Oh)
No one’s around to judge me (Oh)
I can’t see clearly when you’re gone

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I’m drowning in the night
Oh, when I’m like this, you’re the one I trust
Hey, hey, hey

 

 

[Verse 2]
I’m running out of time
‘Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
The city’s cold and empty (Oh)
No one’s around to judge me (Oh)
I can’t see clearly when you’re gone

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I’m drowning in the night
Oh, when I’m like this, you’re the one I trust

[Bridge]
I’m just calling back to let you know (Back to let you know)
I could never say it on the phone (Say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (Ooh)

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Outro]
I said, ooh, I’m blinded by the lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
