The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face
This song personifies drug addiction, likening it to the love of a woman and has been described as “classic pop” by critics, comparing its sound to that of Michael Jackson.
This track also marked the first collaboration between The Weeknd and powerhouse pop producer Max Martin.
“Can’t Feel My Face” is the third single from The Weeknd’s second studio album; it leaked along with “In The Night” and “Acquainted,” (which was leaked as an imcomplete track referred to as “Girls Born in the ‘90s”) on May 25, 2015. The song later premiered live at Apple’s WWDC, in conjunction with the announcement of the Apple Music service.
“Can’t Feel My Face” was The Weeknd’s first solo pop hit, without the aid of Ariana Grande or the Fifty Shades of Grey film. As such, it marked the completion of The Weeknd’s four-year transition from niche alternative R+B to bona fide pop stardom. The song eventually reached #1 on the Billboard chart for three nonconsecutive weeks.
