In the caption, The Weeknd shared that the full version of the song would arrive this Friday, August 6.
"I read every single review. I read every comment. Everything. And I like reviews, man," The Weeknd told GQ. "I like critics. Even the biased ones that are against me, I like reading it. I think it’s interesting. I think it’s humbling, which is always great. I can now understand when you’re reading stuff. Like I can see through the lines now. Between the lines."
