Best The Weeknd Songs
The Top Ten
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 trackV 20 Comments
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.
Nowadays I'm a huge fan of the Weeknd and his latest album Starboy but this is the song that made me like him. Amazing.V 36 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.
Dude, this is easily his best song. The beat is phenomenal, the flow is amazing, and is extremely catchy. This is the only one of his songs that never seems to get old.
Come on guys! This is easily the best beat he has sung over! because gods made it *cough**cough**Daft Punk**cough*
so it's way better and besides you never get tired of it!
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.
The only the weeknd song without swearing.V 23 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.
Second favourite behind wicked games. I am voting for The Morning because it deserves to be number 2- is better than The Hills, Can't Feel My Face and StarboyV 9 Comments
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.V 14 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 plusV 2 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.
Please please vote. I have voted for all of his trilogy stuff because I am a proper fan of his. This deserved to be higher than CFMF, In the Night and Starboy. - jaspyboyV 3 Comments
An interesting song with a fantastic bass session
One of the best from his house of balloons album - AjklothV 1 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 artV 1 Comment
The fact that he shows a different and more loving makes the song more unique and individual. I also appreciate the long notes in the chorusV 1 Comment
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
After hearing to this song... I fell in love with weekend and also 50 shades.. This is the most erotic song I have ever heard... this should be in the 1st positionV 11 Comments
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 - AjklothV 2 Comments
It's dark, violent, sexual, trippy, and most of all, it's The Weeknd. What more could you ask for?
This is an amazing song that is underappreciated. I'm gonna leave it at that
This song is so amazing it's probably my favorite on the album - Ajkloth
Greatest banger of all time with the dark lyrics that make him great. In 2017, I'm still jamming this more than Starboy - jaspyboyV 6 Comments
My favorite song, calming and good to fall asleep to
Its just good honestly plus drake kills it
Amazing song, most relaxing thing to hearV 1 Comment
The story telling, the video, the passion, all amazing. If this was a later more known work of his, no doubt it would be higher. Definitely a pyre diamond buried under the sheer excellence of "House of Balloons".
No debate. Filled with unimaginable soul and crazy subtext behind the lyrics.
We get an idea of the type of people who are voting if this is lower ranked than In The Night. - jaspyboy
Definitely should be top ten the level of emotion in this song is crazy such raw vocals
Abel is basically pouring his heart out in this song, should be in the top 10!
My favorite song from Kiss Land and My 2nd favorite song by Abel.
Along with Tears In the Rain, it is the most underrated weeknd song- despite anything before BBTM being underrated. It's a shame he wasn't as popular in his trilogy and kiss Land days because all these badnwagoners vote for songs like starboy, in the night, earned it and cfmf. Although these songs are good, they are nowhere near as good as songs like this - jaspyboyV 1 Comment
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
This should be #3 it is so catchy and classicV 11 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 songV 3 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
Really emotional, it is a beautiful melody.V 3 Comments
