The Weekend returns on his own for the first time in what seems like an age with his latest infectious single, 'Take My Breath'. Having already teamed up with Ariana Grande on 'Save Your Tears', Doja Cat on 'You Right' and Belly and Young Thug on 'Better Believe' in 2021 it's a refreshing change to see The Weekend going solo.
'Take My Breath' marks The Weekend's first individual release since he dropped 'King Of The Fall' almost eleven months ago. It's a disco infused sure fire floor filler that could easily soundtrack any moody Michael Mann film, especially the extended cuts of the single.
The Weekend has once again teamed up with 'Blinding Lights' producer Michael Martin on his latest track and the winning combination continues to pay huge dividends as the pair combine seamlessly to deliver a massive, faultless, song that has an irresistible electro hook and standout vocal.
The video, directed by Cliqua (J Balvin, Rosalia, Bad Bunny, The Weekend), embraces the strut of the song as The Weekend walks into the shot heading towards an underground club. After hooking up with a mystery companion - who literally takes his breath away, The Weekend finds himself drawn deeper into her world with every gasp.
The Weekend may have been snubbed by The Grammy's but he put on a magnificent show for the Superbowl at half time and has won numerous other accolades this year. You may have thought he'd peaked with the global success he achieved with 'Blinding Lights' but that opinion may have to be re-appraised as The Weekend seems only to be going from strength to strength as he consolidates his position.
