MUSIC VIDEO: THE WEEKND’S “THE KNOWING”

On my list of top ten culture for 2011 would be the woozy morning-after soul of the mysterious Canadian vocalist/producer team, The Weeknd. For a song from an album, House of Balloons, in which every other track sounds like the music from the final five minutes of a Miami Vice episode, this science-fiction opus, directed by Mikael Colombu and originally posted by Drake on his site, is not what I would have expected. Dim the lights, go full screen and check it out. (Hat tip: Pitchfork.)
