With over 230,000 viewers tuned in, he then treated them to a minute-long snippet of a brand new song. “I don’t really care if your tears fall down your face / You know you play the victim every time,” he sings on the stripped-down track. “I need you to know that / We ain’t never gonna go back / This time it got so bad / It’s best for me / It’s best for you.”
The virtual Abel picked up a frog during the performance while the prompt asked fans to vote if he should lick the creature. After a resounding “yes,” the app appeared to crashed for some users due to an overload of fans attempting to vote.
