52. Seduced by the Sound: The Weeknd + Daft Punk

"I Feel it Coming" might be the slowest burning jam to hit the charts in ages, in which the Weeknd enlists the robotic hum of Daft Punk to help craft a perfectly calibrated climate of desire. Brilliant, sexy songs don't just appear out of thin air, though, so we reveal how this song's perpetual excitement is hard-won through references to past stars of sultriness like Michael and Marvin while employing its own bag of tricks to turn up the heat. 

Featuring:

  • The Weeknd + Daft Punk - I Feel it Coming
  • Marvin Gaye - Let's Get it On
  • Michael Jackson - Rock With You
  • Chic - Good Times
  • Ike and Tina Turner - Doin' It
