Watch The Weeknd Perform ‘Heartless’ on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’

(TIML MUSIC) The Weeknd channeled major Michael Jackson and Prince vibes for his first ever performance of recent single “Heartless” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Dressed in a red retro suit and dancing in the backstage hallways of the Ed Sullivan Theater, the three-time Grammy-Award winner had some fun with the impromptu music video, his first performance in a two-night takeover of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

While The Weeknd released the “My Dear Melancholy” EP last year and the song “Power Is Power” (with SZA and Travis Scott) from the “Game of Thrones soundtrack, and has appeared on several other artists’ songs, he last released a full album in 2016 — but he’s back with several projects. Recently, he announced his role as the creative director for Mercedes-Benz’s EQC electric SUV campaign.

Next week, he makes his acting debut in the Safdie brothers’ “Uncut Gems” with Adam Sandler on Dec. 13.
