In the words of The Weeknd's "Save Your Tears" hit, "I saw you dancing in a crowded room," but it wasn't brimming with people. Instead, it was filled with flying cubes after you rushed to strap on your VR headset to immerse yourself in Beat Saber's new The Weeknd Music Pack.

I don't blame you for your excitement. We recently announced the new Lizzo music pack, and now, The Weeknd's on Beat Saber! The new music pack features 10 of the Canadian crooner's top hits, including "Save Your Tears," "Blinding Lights," and "The Hills."

Beat Saber is often touted as the one of best Quest 2 games, allowing music lovers to slice fast-approaching cubes with "sabers" (LED-lit wands) to the beat. You also must duck under obstacles and side-step suddenly appearing walls, making the VR game an excellent workout, too.

Once you snag Beat Saber, you can purchase the base game, which has its own collection of head-bopping tracks, but if you prefer to swing your saber to familiar, well-known songs, you can buy DLC music packs. You can purchase the entire music pack, or if you only like a few of the artist's songs, you can buy individual tracks.

That being said, here's the full song list featured on The Weeknd's Beat Saber Music Pack (opens in new tab):

  • Blinding Lights
  • Can’t Feel My Face
  • How Do I Make You Love Me?
  • I Feel It Coming (feat. Daft Punk)
  • Pray For Me (with Kendrick Lamar)
  • Sacrifice
  • Save Your Tears 
  • Starboy (feat. Daft Punk)
  • Take My Breath
  • The Hills
