Wow this was a surprise. After basically a year of not making solo music Abel returns with Heartless. This song while not exactly what I was expecting is still a great improvement over some of his feature this year which were all just new versions of Starboy. The production is great, Abel actually sounds passionate and interesting on the song and the lyrics are much better than what we have gotten over this years features (looking at you Lost in the Fire). Overall Abel has returned with ... read more

This song is absolute pants.

Completely indistinguishable from what he’s been dropping 2016 and onward. Does he have Drake’s “yes men”? I don’t understand how you make consistently boring shit with fuck loads of money when you were making dope haunted strip club shit when all you had was 4 dollars and a Power Rangers piggy bank to your name.

"I never need a bitch, I'm what a bitch need." I hate that I love this line. :(

Anyway, Heartless is a decent track providing an alternative R&B sound reminiscent of The Weeknd's previous work on Kiss Land and Trilogy. The song departs from some of the slower, gloomier traits of My Dear Melancholy, and Beauty Behind the Madness, and the elements of rock and synth-pop on Starboy.

Heartless instead uses a somewhat uptempo trap production with The Weeknd's epochal grimey and ... read more

This is growing on me a ton

It's not one of his best but he has a great vocal performance and the beat goes pretty hard.

hook is repetitive as hell, beat is uninspired, vocals are bland, overall a less-than-stellar track from an artist i've never been a fan of. go figure.

Aight I can dig this. I could listen to the Weeknd croon over just about anything. I love his voice. This is like a more downplayed cut from Starboy as opposed to the slow, solemn ballads on Melancholy. I definitely enjoyed it, but I hope for a lot more with the upcoming album.

IS ABEL ACTUALLY SMILING?!?!?!

I'd say that I liked the direction he's taking on this cut. Abel's vocals and vocal melodies are as spot-on as always and Metro Boomin's beat is TIGHT! The lyrics aren't anything to write home about, however, and that thumping kick drum is way too loud.

Very upbeat, fun, track from the Weeknd, nothing crazy new but it was a bump, hope to hear it on the radio

I don't rate singles often but I have to make an exception here. I love this track so much. Yea that's right! Go ahead and judge me! I think this song is great. Production is superb, vocals are nothing new from Abel but they're still super clean, and the lyrics are very direct and straightforward. All this provides us with an easy-going, incredibly catchy single.

Disappointing.

There are so many sounds that it becomes loud, it is almost annoying. I hope and this is just a stumble.

Even though this has some cringe worthy lines like "I'm running through the pussy, I need a dog pound", the whole vibe of the track and that metro prod don't fail and carry the song. I'm bumping this until radios overplay this

Uninspired production, bland lyrics, ok vocals.. so forgetable
NR
Yesterday I was listening to old albums, but tbh, it was a pain now to listen to this, never been that disappointed, every last song of him are the same beat, with different pitch, and he also talks just about how much pussy and money he have.. Ok man, if you keep releasing shitty songs like this, u don't deserve me as a fan for your future music if you gonna continue like this, I'll stick to your old songs, also, your unreleased ones are much better and I hope u release something like material ... read more

AH, I can't stop listening to this. Everything about this song is perfect. The beat is amazing. The Weeknd's vocals are wonderful as always. The vibe is cold and unforgiving. I love this song

The track has Metro Boomin on production and beats, which as usual are great. This is nothing too crazy for Metro Boomin standards, but in my opinion, this is probably the most standout thing about the track. I do like the concept of the track, and it reminds me a lot of the whole idea behind Is This It? by the Strokes, and album which I love. From what I got out of this, is that Abel is portraying a character that is in a bad place in his life, and is using women to try to fix it. My biggest ... read more

It’s Weeknd without his usual flare. Kind of disappointing.

I really wasn't bout the first half of the song but after the switch at the midpoint this shit banged

Didn't expect Abel to come back hard like this. Atmospheric and brooding trap beat, the IDGAF lyrics, a chorus I can just about relate to. This song might just grow on me.

If you keep in the back of your mind the fact that this is a song from The Weeknd, and that it's not meant to be the most conceptual thing in the world, it's actually a pretty decent listen.

EDIT: Nvm

Not one of his best songs but it still The Weeknd it’s still great.
