“Can’t Feel My Face” (prod. Max Martin)
Beauty Behind The Madness
2015 was already a huge success for The Weeknd when “Can’t Feel My Face” was premiered at the launch of Apple Music, as “Earned It” and “The Hills” had become two of the biggest songs of the year, and fans began to clamor for his sophomore album ad nauseum. “Can’t Feel My Face,” which was produced by pop extraordinaire Max Martin, is an unmistakable homage to Michael Jackson executed to perfection, down to the heel-toe dances the Toronto native hits when he performs it. Not to mention, commercially, “Can’t Feel My Face” dominated, spending three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and nineteen weeks in the Top 10.
