"I Feel Like Coming" is a song by Canadian singer The Weeknd featuring French electronic duo Daft Punk, from his third studio album, Starboy (2016). It was written by the trio alongside Doc McKinney, Cirkut and Eric Chedeville, being produced by Daft Punk, with The Weeknd, McKinney and Cirkut serving as co-producers. The song was released for digital download on November 18, 2016, alongside "Party Monster", as promotional singles.[3] It was first sent to British contemporary hit radio on November 24, 2016, and it was released to US rhythmic contemporary radio on December 6, 2016 through XO and Republic Records, serving as the album's second single, following their previous collaboration "Starboy".

Composition[edit]

The song is composed in the key of E major with a tempo of 92-96 beats per minute. It follows a chord progression of Gm7/Cm7/Ab(add9)/Eb.[4]

In an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 Radio, The Weeknd stated that he and Daft Punk member Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo had been mutual friends long before the recording of Starboy. When he visited a recording studio in Paris, France, Daft Punk presented The Weeknd with the draft instrumental for "I Feel It Coming". He claims that he wrote the lyrics in one hour.[1]

Additional production and mastering was done by Doc McKinney and Cirkut.

Critical reception[edit]

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."[5] 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'".[6] 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".[7]

Chart performance[edit]

The song peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 on the date ending April 15, 2017.[8] As of May 2018, "I Feel It Coming" has sold 3,000,000 copies in the United States.[9]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "I Feel It Coming" premiered on March 9, 2017 on The Weeknd's Vevo channel.[10] As of August 2018, the video has more than 440 million views on YouTube.

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.

Use in media[edit]

The song is heard in television shows including 13 Reasons Why, Being Mary Jane, Empire, Skam, and Superstore. It also used as the background music for the Nintendo Switch commercial, with Hilary Swank. The song is set to appear in the rhythm game Just Dance 2019.
