Can’t feel my face
A gigantic global hit that fetched Abel a historical success, was a synthy, poppy dance-esque track with some of the rhythm and soul of an R&B jam. This funky song marked his entry in the love-is-a-drug pantheon.
Save your tears Yet another exuberant song from the man’s playlist, this song seemed to stem from his breakups with Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez.
I feel it coming From the album Starboy, this was another critically acclaimed song exuding bubblegum pop tunes. It was a remarkable throwback to the glorious 1980s.
Heartless This had buoyant sounds with synth and groovy, unapologetic beats, blended perfectly with vocals. It was quite a show stealer.
Earned it (from Fifty Shades of Grey) It’s a rich, rhythmic soundtrack rendered in the RnB style with intermittent light rap.
The Hills One of his most critically acclaimed songs from the album Beauty behind Madness, ‘The Hills’ is profound, intense.
