The Weeknd dropped two new songs late Thursday — including one that features electronic outfit Daft Punk — a week before his new album, Starboy, is slated for release.
The Daft Punk collaboration is “I Feel It Comings,” a romantic slow jam that calls to mind the late King of Pop Michael Jackson. “You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you / You don’t have to run, I know what you can do,” he sings on the song’s hook. “Just a simple touch, and it can set you free / We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me.”
On “Party Monster,” the brooding R&B star details hooking up with a woman he doesn’t know. “I’ve seen her take down that tequila / down by the liter, I knew I had to meet her,” he sings. Alas, paranoia ensues. “Woke up by a girl, I don’t even know her name … Had to check the safe, check the dresser for my chains,” he sings in a later verse.
