This up-tempo electropop track finds The Weeknd recounting how his lover lights up his life. The singer is not at peace unless he is in the company of his lady. So who is the lady The Weekend is speaking of? It is likely the singer is addressing his on-off-on girlfriend, Bella Hadid. The clue is in the song's bridge where Abel tells the girl he "will never let her go this time." This became The Weeknd's first-ever UK chart-topping single. "Blinding Lights" became The Weeknd's fifth Hot 100 #1 when it topped the chart dated April 4, 2020. This won Video of the Year at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards. At the socially distanced ceremony, The Weeknd performed the song from the observation deck at the Edge building in New York City in an elaborate production number with a helicopter, fireworks, and "blinding" spotlights.
