The Weeknd delivered the song from New York’s Edge – the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere.

The singer also picked up an award for Best R&B for the song.

During his acceptance speech, the performer admitted that it was hard for him to revel in the moment because of racial injustice in the U.S.
