The second 'The Hills' video from Toronto R&B star The Weeknd features phoenixes, fiery constellations and virtual reality.

This new 'The Hills' video accompanies a remix of the song featuring rapper Eminem. Directed by NABIL, the music video shows The Weeknd exiting a club on a dark night. It follows him as he walks past a limousine, brooding and singing. Dragging the music video's view, however, reveals more intriguing details. The sky above The Weeknd fills with flaming meteors as the viewer explores the 360-degree surroundings of the innovative music video.

'The Hills' was shot using a GoPro camera, transforming it from a standard shoot to the creation of a virtual reality experience. The immersive imagery of the Hills video suits the dark, enrapturing intensity of The Weeknd's music.
