Calvin Harris Drops Highly Anticipated Album ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’ Feat. Frank Ocean, Snoop Dogg, Future, D.R.A.M., Travis Scott & Many More

Calvin Harris Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1

Calvin Harris’ star-studded new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, is here at last! The Scottish producer has solidified his place as one of the biggest names in music throughout 2017, starting back in February with his release of “Slide” feat. Frank Ocean and Migos (which many would argue is the song of the year so far). Ever since, Calvin Harris kept fans invested with singles “Heatstroke,” “Rollin” and “Feels” released consecutively almost every month, with each track featuring huge names and exuding an infectious summery feel.

After a months-long wait, the 10-track album that features a staggering 22 guest artists has finally dropped. In addition to sticking with a lighthearted, summer-infused vibe, the album has noticeable roots in the hip-hop and R&B world. This coupled with Calvin Harris’s inviting signature sound makes Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 an album that music fans of all genres can get behind. 

As for some standouts, “Cash Out” feat. Schoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR and D.R.A.M. is particularly memorable with its vocal harmonies from all three guest artists and a nice piano melody. “Prayers Up” feat. Travis Scott and A-Trak is also a great song, ironically but tastefully mixing drug and prayer references and adding some delicious record scratching effects at the end. “Faking It” feat. Kehlani and Lil Yachty goes deeper with a funkier, low-frequency bassline and more sensual vocals from Kehlani. "Holiday" feat. Snoop Dogg, John Legend and Takeoff is also notable, with Snoop bringing his unmistakable rap style into the mix. Although these were some our favorites, every one of these tracks has a unique personality and vibe.

Altogether, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 is stacking itself up to be one of the best albums of 2017. Stream the album in full below and enjoy!

Calvin Harris Teams Up With Pharrell Williams, Big Sean & Katy Perry For New Summer-Ready Single “Feels”

Calvin Harris has been on a steady roll so far this year. Since the release of his hit single “Slide”, he’s announced his upcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, dropped a huge collaboration with Future & Khalid and then another with Pharrell Williams, Young Thug, & Ariana Grande. Today, he’s continued on his streak of star-studded collabs with a new single featuring Pharrell Williams, Big Sean & Katy Perry, titled, “Feels”.

It seems like we get a new summer-single every time Calvin Harris shares another track off of his upcoming album. “Feels” continues upon the warm, funky vibe from Harris’ previously released singles. Driven by a elastic guitar riff, energetic percussion and bouncy bassline, Pharrell takes care of the first couple of verses and most of the adlibs throughout the song, while Katy Perry lends her rich voice to the chorus. Big Sean jumps in later on in the track, perfectly adding to its tone during the breakdown/bridge. 

Listeners can look forward to features from Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, Schoolboy Q, D.R.A.M., Kehlani, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, and PARTYNEXTDOOR all on Calvin Harris’ Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 out June 30. For now, check out “Feels” ft. Pharrell Williams, Big Sean & Katy Perry below and enjoy!
