Who’s got one of the hottest songs of summer 2015 – Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd. Who would’ve though The Weeknd would follow up “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” and “The Hills” (still newer itself) with arguably his hottest joint as of yet? Since “Can’t Feel My Face” is so popular, I thought it would be fun to listen/watch others cover it. Expectedly, there are lots and lots of covers. Here are 10 that stood out. But first…how about the original to refresh your memory?
The Weeknd, “Can’t Feel My Face”
Video title: The Weekend – Can’t Feel My Face (VIOLIN COVER) – Peter Lee Johnson (June 18, 2015)
If it seemed that “Can’t Feel My Face” couldn’t get any more awesome, Peter Lee Johnson brought his awesome violin skills into the picture. The results? – One of the best covers you’ll ever see/hear!
2) Alex Aiono

This boy can’t sing – he can SANG! Aiono shows off his impressive vocal chops and nails “Can’t Feel My Face.”
Video title: The Weekend – Can’t Feel My Face (Cover by Pros & iCons) (June 15, 2015)
These guys definitely take the song title and concept literally in this hilariously, entertaining music video. Of course the performance is more than just entertaining video – the singing is great as well!
4) Ben Schuller
Video title: The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Twins Acoustic Cover) (June 10, 2015)
This cover proves that “two is better than one.” Well, technically there’s just one Ben, but there’s two of him in the video, which still makes the aforementioned true. Regardless, this dude can sing and he doesn’t have the same voice as The Weeknd, so it is a nice contrast from the original in that regard.
5) The Heist
Video title: Can’t Feel My Face (Cover by The Heist) (June 16, 2015)
Has morning/breakfast ever been more fun than in the hands of Canadian band The Heist? Certainly not! Breakfast is always better with song, particularly when the singing (and playing) is good.
6) Lilly Ahlberg
Video title: Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd (Cover by Lilly Ahlberg) (June 26, 2015)
This is an excellent, intimate setting of “Can’t Feel My Face” – voice and acoustic guitar. Ahlberg has a superb voice, and it’s refreshing to hear a girl tackle undoubtedly one of Summer 2K15’s most popular songs.
7) ROOM 94
Video title: The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Cover) (June 24, 2015)
In the hands of London’s ROOM 94, “Can’t Feel My Face” gets a taste of punk – and it sure feels good!
8) Ryan Seacrest Presents (Alessia Cara)
Video title: The Weeknd “Can’t Feel My Face” (Alessia Cara Cover) | On Air with Ryan Seacrest (June 26, 2015)
Is Canadian singer Alessia Cara a future star? Quite possibly! She definitely does The Weeknd justice on her take on “Can’t Feel My Face,” showing off the uniqueness and pureness of her voice.
9) Micky Parsons
Video title: The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face (Micky Parsons Cover) (June 19, 2015)
Can you believe how high this dude sings? That’s some kind of instrument you got there Micky!
10) Katjapetri (Katja Petri)
Video title: Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd (covered by Katja Petri) (June 26, 2015)
“Can’t Feel My Face” isn’t nearly as happy in the hands of Katja Petri, but the contrast is a welcome and creative one!
