More than a disagreement: The Weeknd took self-loathing to a whole new level in the music video for his new song Gasoline

While it appears fun and exciting from the outside, more sinister images flash quickly across the screen.

Some of these more grisly moments show previously average-looking individuals with eyes missing, rotten teeth and other facial deformities.

The Blinding Lights singer chased after his older self through the crowded club before catching up to and shoving a device into his ear.

After picking up the older Weeknd from the ground, the younger Weeknd headbutts him repeatedly before kicking him several times and stomping on his nose, knocking him unconscious.

Gasoline is one of 16 songs on The Weeknd's new album, Dawn FM, which came out Friday.

The 31-year-old singer–songwriter's fifth studio release has received widespread critical acclaim from reviewers, who pointed to the project's polished production and thematic elements as its strongest assets.

The performer's newest album is modeled on a radio station's broadcast, and he previously expressed that he saw the record as a journey from death to the afterlife.

Alexis Petridis, writing for The Guardian, gave Dawn FM five out of five stars and wrote: 'If this is the end for the Weeknd, what a way to bow out.'
