It is unclear which part of “Climax” the Weeknd is directly attributable to him. At that time, the Weeknd was best known for its hazy, drug-packed escapades – not for the EDM-controlled acrobatics by “Climax” – so it may be delivered in a falsetto. In an interview in 2012, Diplo, who produced “Climax”, described the influences that Usher brought to the studio. “Usher came here with a very clear idea that he wanted to work on a new pop sound and move it forward with the styles and depth of the tracks,” he told The Guardian. “He and his entire crew, like his A&R and band member Natural, are all very, very in touch with what’s going on in the music. They made me think that Monsters Of Folk or Grizzly Bear were influences from the start. “

Now the world is waiting for the Weeknd to contribute its falsetto version of “Climax” or to start the #CantFeelMyFaceChallenge – both work.
