Dressed in his favorite pieces from the Supreme x The North Face Spring/Summer 2014 collection, “King of the Fall” sees Abel taking a stroll through his hometown, visiting random hot spots and exclusive night clubs along the way. Clearly The Weeknd has just revived himself from an explicit fun, the XO singer strolls through the streets of downtown Toronto until nightfall, ending up at an underground party surrounding by hot women and his tight-knit crew.  Fellow Canadian rapper Belly, aka Dablo Escobar, also makes an appearance in the melancholy clip.
