Top 10 Best The Weeknd Songs

The Top Ten
1 The Hills

This song is incredible. It is dark, gloomy, and honest in all the right ways. Some might criticize the heavy use of Auto-Tune in the chorus, but I found that usage very fitting for such a dark track.

The 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.

I absolutely love this song. It is his best so far, and I sincerely hope that he will make another song like it. I have been a number 1 fan of "The Hills" since it came out, and now it is number 1!

2 Wicked Games

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 is outstanding, and the guitar in the background is beautiful. An overall amazing song, and definitely The Weeknd's best song.

I know some people are saying that some of the newest The Weeknd songs are what he's all about. The only reason I voted for Wicked Games is because The Hills, Starboy, Can't Feel My Face, In the Night, and Feel It Coming don't even deserve to be in the top 20. Any old song of Abel's deserves to be number one.

Everyone, trust me and listen to Montreal, Kiss Land, Adaptation, The Town, The Zone, Rolling Stone. Something that is good! Trust me, please, you're missing out.

3 I Feel It Coming

This song couldn't be better. I thought the Starboy album was going to be the death of The Weeknd, but this song proved me wrong.

There have been comparisons between The Weeknd and Michael Jackson. I think this song is the closest comparison you can make.

I had flashbacks of Michael Jackson when I first saw and heard this song. Unbelievable!

4 Starboy

This song made me a total fan of this guy. Not only was this song one of the best things I've seen out of 21st century music, its music video was killer. I could listen to this song over and over again and never get bored.

This was my favourite song. By now I have moved on, but to this day it remains one of the best. It was his most streamed song by far until Blinding Lights came along, and I could listen to this over and over again.

Dude, this is easily his best song. The beat is phenomenal, the flow is amazing, and it is extremely catchy. This is the only one of his songs that never seems to get old.

5 Can't Feel My Face

This song should be at number 1. This song is easily The Weeknd's best song, and I'm not sure if he'll ever make a song as good as it. His singing, the amazing lyrics, the production, it's all so amazing. It's like Michael Jackson.

His singing sounds like Michael, he says ooh before the hook, and he spins and gets on fire in the video.

By far, this is his best song! Written by that Swedish guy who also wrote "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears.

This song defines the quotation "love at first sight." Just love the song! One of my favorite songs.

6 Blinding Lights

This song sounds a lot like what Abel could've put in Kiss Land, what with the song being a blatant '80s synthpop throwback. The difference is that Kiss Land has a pretty negative energy to it, and this is purely positive. And that makes it better than, like, 80 percent of that album.

My only complaint is that the hook could've been better structured lyrically, but otherwise, this is catchy as hell. I would love to see this get successful.

This song is the best one The Weeknd has ever released to date. It got me through 2020 and I couldn't really stop listening to it because of how awesome it is as a throwback to the glory days of the 80s. I'd even go as far as to say he was robbed from the Grammys like most have said.

It deserved to be kept on the Billboard for an entire year as there hasn't been any pop song that I heard as good as this in a long, long time. Heck, this is truly The Weeknd's signature song that turned him into a modern legend. I also won't deny this song sounds like the past, present, and future.

7 In the Night

Nearly flawless, it's easily the best song outside of his early mixtapes. The beat and rhythm echo that of Everybody Wants to Rule the World, the thumping and wavering bass line gives it a Personal Jesus vibe, and the gentle synths are reminiscent of Frank Ocean's Nights in the hook. These are followed by a dramatic synth breakdown similar to the bad-era Michael Jackson, all alongside occasional pianos throughout the verses.

Paired with excellent vocals that croon over the production, the song's strongest suit, however, is easily the lyrics. They tell a story about a teenage girl who is physically and sexually abused by her father, and forced into stripping and sex in order to make money for her struggling family. That is why this song is arguably one of the best songs The Weeknd has ever recorded.

8 The Morning

After listening to his whole discography, no song gives me a feeling as special as this. This has grown the most for me from his debut, House of Balloons. It's about turning your pain and suffering into something beautiful, a realization that you're no different from those who relieve you from your pain, like that of a stripper, awaiting the next phase of your life - The Morning.

Honorable mentions to any song on House of Balloons - especially House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls, Coming Down, and Loft Music.

9 House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls

Love it when the beat transitions into Glass Table Girls. It sounds so dark and creepy with Abel's deeper vocals and lyrics.

Wow, that beat switch is wild. Both halves are extremely strong and feature some of his best toxic lyrics that we love him for.

It's dark, violent, sexual, trippy, and most of all, it's The Weeknd. What more could you ask for?

10 Earned It

After listening to this, I just fell for this singer. The most seductive song ever! Even the lyrics are justifiable and beautiful.

After hearing this song, I fell in love with The Weeknd and also 50 Shades. This is the most erotic song I have ever heard. This should be in the first position.

Such a seductive and beautiful song. This is the song where The Weeknd shows the most talent.

The Contenders
11 Call Out My Name

Emotionally charged and full of depressing feelings. Easy to relate to for anyone in a toxic breakup.

Just wow, fell in love the first time I heard it.

12 High for This

The greatest opener to an album/mixtape ever. Not only is it relevant to the storyline and incredibly immersive, but listeners feel that Abel is singing to them about his music and his music career as well. As of 2018, we still can't expect what is in store music-wise from him.

13 Reminder

My current favorite from him. This should zoom up this list in no time. What a song!

An incredible vibe. An amazing voice. Original. Darkness. Catchy. Perfect.

Every time you try to forget who I am, I'll be there to remind you again. You know me... best verse.

14 Often

This should definitely be higher up on the list.

This should be placed much higher.

This is literally a The Weeknd song.

15 Twenty Eight

Favorite song from him, behind Wicked Games. Beautiful chorus and vocals, and the production is outstanding.

He pours his heart out in this, an amazing song. My favorite by him. He's an amazing singer.

One of his best, maybe even beating The Hills. Admit it, it's the best song of his.

16 Tears In the Rain

Tears in the Rain is a beautiful song from Abel. It should get more attention. Listen to the lyrics and I promise you will love it. If you're an XO fan like me, you should already love every song by Abel.

This is by far one of the best songs I have ever heard from any artist. Enough said.

This one is his best song. For sure.

17 Save Your Tears

This is criminally low on the list.

18 Pray for Me

I like the bass. Kendrick Lamar is such a good rapper!

Great song. Kendrick's part is good as well.

19 The Zone
20 XO / The Host

Perfectly captures the haunting feelings of being in active addiction and loving/hating/feeling scared of it/not being able to leave it.

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 Can't Feel My Face, In the Night, and Starboy.

Amazing. It's dark, and it almost makes me want to experience his lifestyle. Should totally be number one on this list.

21 In Your Eyes

He sounds so much like Michael Jackson in this. Assuming I listen to the song from the radio for the first time, I would have thought it is MJ.

22 Montreal

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.

23 False Alarm

This should be in the top ten! Probably the best experimental song in years!

The drop is so crazy! Makes me want to break my legs every time I listen to it!
