New Weeknd and it’s his new single at that! “Can’t Feel My Face” may immediately bring back memories of Weezy and DeShawn Stevenson, but for 2015, it’ll be the funky new sound for longtime Weeknd fans and a top 10 summer single, perhaps.
I dig the new direction from Weeknd, who can’t stay bottled up in his dark sound for his whole career. And with recent singles straying from that too, “Earned It” most notably, this seems like a perfect time to hit the summer with a warmer sound. Not that this is dumbed down or aimed for a pop audience, I think “Can’t Feel My Face” finds the right balance of casual appeal with just being a quality song.
