Tom Cruise lipsynced the song at Jimmy Fallon's late show.

It will be a #1 next week: to me, that is a sync...

I thought album will have some more Martin's songs...
Because ‘‘I need a handful of songs like that.’’ Two is not a handful.

I will never understand the US Billboard Hot 100 - but I'm so happy for Max. The legend continues. What a journey it is to follow this man.

"I'm excited for the world to hear the full body of work and experience the vision," The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) says, citing the new album. "It's an honor to be a part of such a great team like Republic Records and to collaborate and learn from such a seasoned producer [and writer] like Max Martin.

The album credits appeared at Abel's wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty_Behind_the_Madness

No more Max involvement apart from Can't Feel My Face and In The Night -which we already heard in full- but also Shameless features cowriting credits by Ali Payami, Savan Kotecha and Peter Svensson.
