  • Lyrics
  • Ed Sheeran co-penned this song and also supplied some vocals. "I wrote a song with Ed Sheeran that was kind of spontaneous," The Weeknd told GQ. "He was hosting the Much Music Awards in Toronto and I invited him, and pretty much the entire awards show, to my condo to party. It went on until about 5 in the morning but we didn't write the song until that next day, so you can imagine how that night went."
  • The lyrics find both The Weeknd and Sheeran warning women of the addictions they habitually fall into when depressed.
