Starting off with an ominous backdrop,"The Town" is vocally as close to Michael Jackson as The Weeknd has been since his infamous "D.D." cover. He's singing about the love he left behind on his rise to fame. "You made me feel so good before I left on the road / And you deserve your name on a crown, on a throne," he lamented. Once again the song takes a turn around the 2:30 mark with The Weeknd jumping up an octave while the track adds a touch of electropop.
