The Canadian musician notably appeared in a commercial for Mercedes-Benz’s new EQC electric SUV. The advertisement, which first aired in Germany, also features an instrumental snippet of a yet-unreleased song by The Weeknd, supposedly entitled “Blinding Lights.” While the commercial is only a minute-long, Mercedes-Benz announced that a full film starring the “Starboy” vocalist will be released just in time for Black Friday on November 29. The snippet of “Blinding Lights” arrived on the heels of The Weeknd’s return on Instagram, which prompted fans to believe that his long-awaited fourth studio album was on the way. Details about the forthcoming full-length are still scarce to this date, although the musician cryptically tweeted last year that “some chapters are smaller than others. not this next one though…” The Weeknd dropped his last full-length, “Starboy,” in 2016. The award-winning vocalist has since unveiled the six-song album “My Dear Melancholy,” which arrived in March 2018.
