I know many of you were underwhelmed by The Weeknd's Super Bowl performance.
It is difficult, however, to be underwhelmed by the impact this Canadian singer has had on music. His combination of soul and electronic music is somewhat groundbreaking - and I can understand that not translating well to a weird national broadcast performance.
So we're clear, this was his current single during that Super Bowl, and it is a top 20 hit worldwide, so I think he's doing something right. The song initially charted in April 2020, a full 8 months before it was released as a single - because it is such an infectious song.
The Weeknd also performed the song during the 2020 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball. In a few years, we're going to look back upon performances like this, without crowds, and remember our little pandemic. For now, just enjoy this live performance.
