These two powerhouses have joined forces and can we just say it’s game over now?
Music heavyweights Calvin Harris and The Weeknd dropped on Friday, August 28 their first-ever collaboration, ‘Over Now,‘ via Columbia Records. On the same day, the accompanying music video also premiered, seeing the two artists in a futuristic world. Watch the music video below!
Directed by Harris’s longtime creative collaborator, Emil Nava, the innovative video blurs the lines between technology and reality, featuring a space and time-transcending experience through a CGI portal into The Weeknd’s mind.
Prior to the release, the pair had been teasing fans about the collaborative single, with The Weeknd – AKA Abel Tesfaye – posting a photo on Instagram of him and Harris drinking together. “Don’t get too confused…” he wrote on the post.
While fans had already figured the two heavyweights were working together, the project was only confirmed on August 23 when The Weeknd took to Twitter to share promotional photos, captioning it with, “over now. friday.” Calvin Harris was tagged in the tweet.
