Watch now: The Weeknd is back with some "Secrets" in new video

The Weeknd's trippy visual for his song "Secrets" starts off with a woman running as the camera spins, making her appear to run upside-down, before the camera cuts to another scene of her appearing to float in mid-air, as men in glass elevators slowly descend behind her. That's pretty much the tone throughout the Pedro Martin-Calero-directed visual, as The Weeknd himself hovers around corners, on balconies, or several feet behind the mystery woman, who's in the arms of another lover, portrayed by R&B singer Black Atlass.   The song's chorus also incorporates lyrics from the 1983 hit single "Talking in Your Sleep," by The Romantics. …
