Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, popularly known as The Weeknd, has found a place in our playlists after he released the supremely trippy Starboy. While he might’ve caught your attention only recently, The Weeknd has been around for a while now. 

But unlike other R&B artists, what makes him one of a kind is that his songs revolve around loss and pain, and he does it with low range vocals and intense electro fusion. Sounds like a great deal, no?

So we decided to compile a list of 10 of his other songs that will get you grooving if you’re a fan of Starboy. Check ’em out:


1. The Hills

If you’re a fan of unforeseen bass drops then this should be your go-to song. The song is trippy AF and trust me you can’t get the tune out of your head!


2. Can’t Feel My Face

Do you like to dig into some disco-funk once in a while? Well, then guess what, The Weeknd got you covered with Can’t Feel My Face. It is next to impossible to not sway when this one plays!


3. I Feel It Coming

While many associate The Weeknd’s songs with dark themes, this one is refreshing and peppy. And it features Daft Punk, so double yay!



4. Earned It 

Chances are that you might’ve heard this one in Fifty Shades Of Grey. Apart from Ellie Goulding’s Love Me Like You Do, this one made it to the top-ten too.


5. In The Night

This one is all about the mystery that the video creates. Backed with foot-tapping tunes and catchy words, In The Night is everything you want from a good song video.


6. Party Monster

Like the name suggests, this one is all about partying hard. Psychedelic visuals, hazy scenes and a whole lot of electro drama is what makes this song worth listening to.


7. Love Me Harder 

Okay, so this is actually an Ariana Grande track and features The Weeknd, but it’s totally worth it. It’s quite a drift from Grande’s usual sparkly music and ventures into what The Weeknd does best- R&B with a hint of the 80s.


8. Tell Your Friends

Rumour has it that this song was originally made for Kanye West, who later went on to produce it for The Weeknd. It’s a part of Beauty Behind the Madness, The Weeknd’s second studio album.


9. Sidewalks

This song doesn’t have a video yet, but it features Kendrick Lamar and that’s more than enough. This is just the song you need to play when the vibe is retro and relaxed.


10. Reminder

The best thing about this one is what it addresses. The tune is pretty similar to some of his previous songs but it’s the swag that seals the deal. The entire song is about how The Weeknd will keep reminding you that he exists.

Go on, add them to your playlist already!
