Part of what makes “I Can’t Feel My Face” so hot is its infectious chorus. In the past, Weeknd may have shied away from songs with structures and hooks like this. But, he’s shifted in his perspective.

“I was always a punk: ‘I hate major chords. I hate structure. I want this song to be eight minutes long.’ It would kill [former producers].”he told The New York Times yesterday. “My head-space now is, I love choruses. A chorus is not easy.”

Well, this one is easily stuck in your head after hearing the song. And now the video’s just as fire.
