Currently on his King Of The Fall Tour with fellow soulster Jhene Aiko and rapper Schoolboy QThe Weeknd’s Abel Testfaye is back with a new tour-titled track, and it’s business as usual, folks. It’s a song about — you guessed it — the ladies, but it’s not just about any girl in particular anymore. This time around, he wants the lot.

Packed with his signature baby-making melody and angelic mewl, “King of the Fall” seems almost formulaic for the Canadian crooner now, but, hey, if it keeps the ladies flocking, am I right? Singing “Your girl’s so bad, let me get her. She gon’ give it up ’cause she know I might like it,”

The Weeknd mysteriously also uses a picture of indie darling Sky Ferriera as the track’s cover art, which poses the question: Is this on purpose, or just a coincidence? Listen to the song below, and decide for yourself.
