Barack Obama “Sings” The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face”

Still taken from the video.

By now we’ve all heard The Weeknd’s smash hit “Can’t Feel My Face,” which is the No. 1 song in the country once again this week, all while The Weeknd’s album Beauty Behind the Madness sits atop the album charts with the second biggest first week of any album this year. (The only album to have a bigger first week was Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.) But we’ve never heard it quite like this. Instead of The Weeknd’s Michael Jackson-esque vocals, this video from baracksdubs splices together a rendition from the decidedly un-Michael-Jackson–esque vocals of President Barack Obama. Here’s hoping Obama covers a few more singles before Beauty Behind the Madness falls from the top of the charts. Next up: “The Hills”?
