BEST NEW SONGS: THE WEEKND “I CAN’T FEEL MY FACE“

The Weeknd - I Can't Feel My Face

Last week The Weeknd set the internet ablaze by posting, and then soon after removing, his new song, “I Can’t Feel My Face.” The reasoning behind the pull back became clear this Monday when the official audio version of the song was released at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

Co-written by Grammy Award-winning producer Max Martin, “I Can’t Feel My Face“ is a pop smash. Sounding like a Michael Jackson song on molly, which is exactly the vibe they’re going for, this is The Weeknd’s most mainstream work to date. Anyone who worried he was gonna go boring and adult contemporary on us after that dull song for the 50 Shades soundtrack can find solace in how much this track bangs.

I always assumed Abel Tesfaye would attempt a pop crossover eventually, I just never thought it’d sound this good.

As a parting gift, we’ll leave you with they lyrics:

and i know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
and she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
but at least we'll both be beautiful and stay forever young
this i know, yeah, this i know

she told me, "don't worry about it"
she told me, "don't worry no more"
we both know we can't go without it
she told me you'll never be in love, oh, oh, woo

i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh

and i know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
and she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
all the misery was necessary when we're deep in love
this i know, girl, i know

she told me, "don't worry about it"
she told me, "don't worry no more"
we both know we can't go without it
she told me you'll never be in love, oh, oh, woo

i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh

she told me, "don't worry about it"
she told me, "don't worry no more"
we both know we can't go without it
she told me you'll never be in love, oh, oh, woo

i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
i can't feel my face when i'm with you
but i love it, but i love it, oh
