THE WEEKND FIRES THE STARTER'S PISTOL

The U.S. women's track and field team have lent their luster to The Weeknd's video announcement that Friday will see the release of his single “Take My Breath” (XO/Republic).

The 52-second clip, released late Monday night, features Olympians Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad, Athing Mu and Gabby Thomas. Earlier yesterday, The Weeknd said on social media, “The dawn is coming,” which had wonderers wondering what was up his sleeve.

Some are now thinking he'll find inspiration in the gold-winning Canadian women's rowing team.
