Listen To The Weeknd's Funky New Single "Can't Feel My Face"
UPDATE:After leaking online weeks ago (and subsequently being removed), The Weeknd's new single "Can't Feel My Face" has been officially released by iHeartRadio. The CDQ be streamed below and the track will be available for purchase on iTunes at midnight tonight.)
Just in time for his headlining set at the 8th annual Roots Picnic, new music from devilish R&B star The Weeknd has
released leaked, proving that he's not resting on his 50 Shades of Grey laurels but is in fact hard at work creating tracks for a forthcoming project. The most complete-sounding (and captivating) of these new morsels is "I Can't Feel My Face," a massive heartbreak funk-ballad that has The Weeknd, for once, coming across as a hard-strutter who's down for a bit of levity amidst all the drugs and bare skin.
Beyond "I Can't Feel My Face," we've been treated to a tiny clip of "In the 90s" (a warning song against falling for women born in the Clinton years) and the full version of the dark gem "In the Night." Loyal Weeknd fans will find much to enjoy in all three tracks, which seem to indicate a real, dynamic growth in his sound. Here's hoping that some (or all) of the material makes its way into his set in Philadelphia on May 30th. Take a quick sampling of all three tracks below before they're plucked from the web and stay tuned for more moody tones from The Weeknd.
