Before you spiral, The Weeknd is not injured. A bloodied and/or injured face is part of his promotional look for After Hours—and it's hardly the first time we've seen it. The Weeknd has face injuries in the video for "Blinding Lights," and he also wore bloody face makeup for an SNL performance, and during the VMAs. So nope, this is not new.

“‘Blinding Lights’ [is about] how you want to see someone at night, and you’re intoxicated, and you’re driving to this person and you’re just blinded by streetlights,” Abel said in an Esquire September cover story. “But nothing could stop you from trying to go see that person, because you’re so lonely. I don’t want to ever promote drunk driving, but that’s what the dark undertone is.”
