  • Lyrics
  • "Try Me" finds The Weeknd lusting after a former girlfriend. He claims not to want to break up his ex's new romance but he still tells her that if she has feelings for him, he's willing to rekindle their romance.

    I didn't know you were down for him finding out
    I thought you had some kind of love for your man
    Well, I'm not tryna break up something
    You've been workin' out, you've been steady
    But I'm ready to go all the way if you let me
    Don't you tempt me

    The Weeknd first freestyled the above lines after performing his remix of "Drunk In Love" during his September 19, 2014 Brooklyn, New York gig.
  • The song's haunting production is courtesy of The Weeknd's frequent collaborator DaHeala ("Often," "Earned It"), My Dear Melancholy co-executive producer Frank Dukes, hitmaker Mike WiLL Made-It and his understudy Marz.
