The Weeknd started his 2016 with two Grammy wins, one for Best R&B Performance “Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)” and Best Urban Contemporary album with Beauty Behind The Madness, and now he’s added a smooth performance of “Can’t Feel My Face” before transitioning to “In The Night.” The vocals weren’t as on point as they usually are, but Abel still earned a standing ovation from the glitter-covered (Thanks, Taylor Swift) attendees.
If you’re tired of “Can’t Feel My Face,” then here’s some good news: Abel has more singles on the way. “I’ve got at least three more singles [to come], said the singer to the Los Angeles Times recently. “I’m shooting a video in a few days for “Acquainted.” I kinda want to sit back. I don’t want to oversaturate the market quite yet.”
The Weeknd’s Grammys performance means people now know who sings summer 2015’s smash hit, also telling the Times, “You never know what the impact is going to be after the Oscars or the Grammys. That’s a whole new America. There are people who don’t even know who sings ‘Can’t Feel My Face.’ Surely, they know now!
Keep your eyes peeled if Abel takes home some more trophies on our live updating winners list.
