On August 5th, 2021, The Weeknd’s “Take My Breath” music video premiered on Youtube. The Weeknd has always stayed true to his original sound which typically incorporates instrumental styles that resemble 80s music. An admirable trait The Weeknd possesses is his ability to mesh 80s synths and drum patterns with today’s pop and R&B influences. Additionally, one of The Weeknd’s signature artistic styles is the way he personifies his relationship of dark themes and love. In the song “Take My Breath” he relates the dark element of suffocating to death and intoxication to a woman. He repeatedly asks this woman to take his breath. In the video, we are exposed to semi-erotic depictions of this woman taking The Weeknd’s breath away. “Take My Breath” offers an exciting energy to this summer’s cue of songs!
