King of the Fall

Album: not on an album (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Titled after Abel "The Weeeknd" Tesfaye's King of the Fall tour, this five-minute effort finds the crooner n a typically debauched mode, as he boasts about snatching girls from right under their boyfriends' noses:

    Bring your girl to my show, give her floor seats
    Then she go downtown like she owe me


    Men might now be thinking twice about bringing their girl to a Weeknd gig.
