Best The Weeknd Songs
The Top TenXW
The hills is madness. Just can't get enough. Weeknd rose to another level with this hit. Take a bow the weeknd. - Ark-M
This song made me a weeknd fan to be honest. Really chill song
First Weeknd song I heard that made me fall in love. It is amazing and I memorized all the words about the third time I listened to it. Really makes other artists sound like crap.
Sheer madness, this song just drives me crazy.V33 Comments
This deserves to be number one. The Weeknd's new stuff is great and all, but none of it can compare to Wicked Games. Where do I start? The production is spacious, atmospheric, and almost somber. The lyrics are about regretting your past and looking for love at the lowest point of your life. The multitracking on the vocals in the chorus are outstanding, and the guitar in the background is beautiful. An overall amazing song, and definitely The Weeknd's best song.
Needs to be #1. enough said. Many fans can relate the dark and sinister passion you can hear in the song. Bandwagons just put "The Hills" at #1 because its his "best yet"...No were near this song
Wicked Games always catches me in my feelings, I love the song so much, I am huge fan of The Weeknd and I can relate to Wicked Games. It deserves the number one spot.
Can listen to it for infinite times, great trackV20 Comments
Awesome song this song made weeknd recognize all around the world
Easily the Best song by The Weeknd till date.
This is such an amazing song, by the way why is #23. It should be #1.
Didn't care for this songV23 Comments
This is some good stuff! Sure, it's not as good as In the Night, but damn is it great. Let's hope the rest of the album is as good as this is! - Spark_Of_Life
Really awesome song can't stop listening to it.
The best on so far, its really good
Best song I've heard!V13 Comments
The production values are outstanding out of all of his songs, with jaw-dropping vocals and a beautiful guitar strum is played in the back. What could be better?
One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The gorgeous guitar instrumental along with Abel's incredible vocals and phenomenal bass lines comes together to create a wonderfully serene production.
The beat is so smooth and the guitar in the background adds so much. My favorite hands down.

So...where to begin?
The production is absolutely fantastic. The synth, while smoggy, is heavily atmospheric and actually sounds like it's part of the powerful bass. The percussion is absolutely fantastic and matches the song perfectly. The Weeknd's performance is a lot less annoying than usual (cough cough The Hills).
But what makes this song truly a masterpiece are the lyrics. They tell of a stripper who was abused when she was younger and the trauma it caused her. This is an absolutely cold story with a lot of offer. The thing is only Abel could pull something like this off. The vocal melody is absolutely fantastic, the framing is fantastic, the progression is fantastic...this is literally perfect. Plus the ability to lip sync to it is fantastic. This is an obvious 5/5. - WonkeyDude98
Once this is released as a single, people will know just how great this song is. As with every song by The Weeknd, the lyrics are beautiful, but his voice is absolutely incredible in this piece.
I agree with the person who said it's not the best. I don't like hearing "She was young but she was forced to be a woman all the time" on my way to play rehearsals.
This is by far the best. It's about domestic violence.V14 Comments
One of his best songs, yet extremely underrated. His strained yet beautiful vocals tie into the amazing lyrics which give you an emotional and beautiful look into his life. This is definitely one of his more vulnerable songs where he expresses his sorrow and flaws
I can't pick which one is the best, but He speaks French in this song
"Baby I'm a pro at letting go, I love it when they come and go." - Ajkloth
His french is definitely a plusV2 Comments
An interesting song with a fantastic bass session
One of the best from his house of balloons album - AjklothV1 Comment
The raw emotion and feeling extracted from the vocals all comes together at the bridge where you put yourself in his position and feel what he's feeling. Amazing song
The most amazing song from the lyrics,to the ending where the no's fade to represent him leaving. this song is a work of artV1 Comment
You can hear the deep emotion in his voice and meaning behind the lyrics which create a beautiful masterpiece
This song seems so relatable for me I don't know why - AjklothV2 Comments
Maybe one of his best ever, the flow is superb
Great hook, so catchy, just love it.
After listening this I just fall for this singer.. The most seductive song ever! Event the lyrics are justifiable and beautiful...
Number 14?... Really guys?...this is undeniably his best song... I think it should be #1
Remind me of fifty shades of grey
Should be number 1V11 Comments
The background music sets a tone that becomes complete with his almost skeptical yet compelling vocals which persuade you to want to join his lifestyle and experience the story he paints in the song
His flow, voice, and lyrics just bang! Simple.V3 Comments
This should be placed much higher.
One of his more famous works, with a catchy chorus and innovative lyrics
This shows how good of a songwriter the weekend was - Ajkloth
How is this song not in the top 5?V11 Comments
This song is incredible, especially with Future and his silly vocals, which really compliments Abel's soft tone in this song, as well as the amazing beats.
I love this song, it's the first time I understood what Future was saying
Definitely not number 1. The hills is better but definitely top 10
This must be higher than 16 its such a good songV3 Comments
This song is 7 minutes 36 seconds of pure pleasure. Back when Abel had full creative control over his work. This didn't sell well, but this was gold. The second part of the song takes the listener to a whole new world.
A beautiful story in a song. The mood he sets with the vocals and instrumental come together to paint a picture of his experiences in Asia that inspired this song and the whole album
Excellent song that splits into two completely different sounds
This one is a top five for me but top ten overall at leastV7 Comments
He pours his heart out in this, amazing song. My favourite by him, he's an amazing singer
Favorite song from him behind Wicked Games. Beautiful chorus and vocals, and the production is outstanding.
Definitely my favourite, amazing vocals and production, and he puts so much passion and emotion into it
