Exhibit A: Chris Brown - Zero
Exhibit B: The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face
If you don't mind me asking, is that because of the music or because of Chris?
Or is it a little from column A, a little from column B?
Have you ever liked his music or have you never cared for him?
And are you a fan of The Weeknd?
No Air song he did with jordin sparks.
But I have avoided everything he has put his name to since (checks wikipedia) February 2009.
I wouldn't call myself a fan of the Weeknd, although I've heard that can't feel my face song a few times and i didn't hate it.
But what do you think of the songs?
but the Weeknd's song is ,much better in this case. Zero is pretty lightweight/forgettable with weaker production and less impressive vocals.
But the way ...Face builds to the chorus, only to cut to the vocals and bassline, always feels like an anti-climax to me. The way the harmonies come in is nice, and it's a memorable vocal line, but it still feels like a let-down.
Zero has a much more worthy chorus; the call and response form of it is undeniable. And the subject matter feels a lot more resonant and empowering than Weeknd's vague hedonism.
And if anything, the fact that I like Zero so much despite it's weaker production and vocals is a testament to the strength of the song. Or my poor taste.
But that Can't Feel My Face song is a tune of Kasabian-esque proportions. I actually like the bit in the chorus with little more than vocals, bass and drums. And the counterpoint harmony bit at the end.
It's pretty shit imo tbh tbf
That song is amazing, its like a punch in the face
cfmc is really good and I'm not a weeknd fan at all. chris brown has way better songs than zero... I try to hate them with all my heart, sometimes kinda hard tho, he's everywhere.
Although The Weeknd's hair >>> Billy Corgan's hair
