Watch The Weeknd Preview New Music, Perform With Doja Cat During Virtual TikTok Concert

    Last night, The Weeknd performed a virtual concert on TikTok. Titled The Weeknd Experience and billed as a “live fan interactive & immersive XR moment”, the event saw the alternative R&B artist – or rather, a 3D animated version of him – play a minute-long snippet of a new song before a performance of the hit single ‘Blinding Lights’. A digital avatar of Doja Cat also joined in during the performance of ‘In Your Eyes’. Check it out below (the new song starts at 7:03 while ‘In Your Eyes’ is at the 13:06 minute mark).

    During the virtual show, fans were encouraged to donate to the Equal Justice Initiative, which supports racial equality and aims to bring an end to mass incarceration in the US. Viewers also had the opportunity to vote in polls and have their usernames displayed on the livestream.

    The Weeknd’s last studio LP was After Hourswhich we named one of our favourite albums of 2020 so far. A few days ago, he unveiled a collaboration with the late Juice WRLD titled ‘Smile’.
