"I Feel It Coming" is a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd featuring French electronic duo Daft Punk, from his third studio album, Starboy (2016). The artists co-wrote and co-produced the song with Doc McKinney and Cirkut, with additional writing from Eric Chedeville.

Critical receptionEdit

In Rolling Stone's review of Starboy, Mosi Reeves commended the track, stating that, ""I Feel It Coming," is a gem of Ibiza disco love... [it] is surprisingly sunny and fresh."[1] Reviewing the album for Pitchfork, Mehan Jayasuriya wrote that "both of the Daft Punk collaborations are satisfying, if hardly groundbreaking", describing the song as "a slowed-down version of 'Get Lucky'" [2] Reviewing the album track-by-track, The Independent's Christopher Hooten praised the song and said, "the Daft Punk-featuring track initially fall[s] in with Michael Jackson and Toto on a Venn diagram but, crucially, [is] thrown off kilter by a melancholy keyboard line low in the mix in the chorus. [It] could definitely become an iconic track".[3]

Chart performanceEdit

As of April 9, 2017, "I Feel It Coming" has sold 603,000 copies in the United States.[4] It peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 on the date ending April 15, 2017.[5]

Music videoEdit

The music video for "I Feel It Coming" premiered on March 9, 2017, on The Weeknd's Vevo channel.[6] The video has over 102 million views as of 1st May 2017.

The video is purposely made to look like it was shot on film then transferred and edited on Betacam SP, like most music videos before digital. Betacam SP was popular broadcast format from the 70's-90's. Evidence of this can be seen on the slight overall softness to the image and edge bleed as the image transitions to the black bars.

The video features The Weeknd meeting a "Stargirl", portrayed by Kiko Mizuhara, on a rocky, barren planet in outer space that shares similarities to Mars. The video also features an appearance by Daft Punk after the song ends.

It was directed by Warren Fu.

In popular culture Edit

The song is heard in the television shows Being Mary Jane, Empire, Skam, and Superstore.
