The Weeknd is not fucking around with this upcoming album. Fresh off debuting the song live at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this morning (June 8), the “Earned It” singer-songwriter drops the official version of his brand new single “Can’t Feel My Face“!
The Canadian crooner trades in the moody and seductive sound we got from last week’s “The Hills” for something more radio-friendly and upbeat on this synth-pop killer, produced by the ultimate hit-making dream team: Max Martin, Ali Payami, Savan Kotecha and Peter Svennson, all of who had in hand in creating The Weeknd‘s smash with Ariana Grande, “Love Me Harder.”
“I can’t feel my face when I’m with you / But I love it,” Abel gushes throughout the infectious hook on top of a meaty dance beat. It’s the perfect sonic marriage of his signature alt-R&B vibe and Martin‘s radio-ready pop sensibility with a little Michael Jackson thrown into the mix – I LOVE IT!
