The Weeknd – Call Out My Name

The Weeknd’s new surprise EP My Dear Melancholy, is, in some ways, a return to the dark, anonymous R&B the Toronto songwriter made his name on back in 2011. The opener, “Call Out My Name,” however, feels like a neat fusion of his styles, operating on a 3/4 march reminiscent of “Earned It,” one of his first true crossover moments.

Another difference between the track, and say, a deep cut from House Of Balloons, is that the woman at its center is one we all know. It’s been speculated that Selena Gomez, Abel’s ex, is being addressed on many of the songs from the new EP, and her presence is not too subtle on this track in particular.
