The Weeknd Rejected All Of Max Martin's Songs
This all occurred before they wrote "Can't Feel My Face."

The Weeknd has been announced as a performer at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. And the announcement itself was newsworthy because it was made by Tom Cruise on Twitter.

This will be The Weeknd’s first televised performance of his Max Martin-assisted track. The hit appears on his forthcoming album Beauty Behind The Madness, which is out August 28 and may or may not have features from Lana Del Rey and Kanye West.

The Canadian singer is also nominated for a couple VMAs, including Best Male Video for “Earned It” and Best Collaboration for “Love Me Harder” with Ariana Grande.

Miley Cyrus hosts the 2015 VMAs, which airs live August 30 at 9 p.m. ET.
