“Chanel” is sounding amazing and they actually played it 18 times in a row on the radio show. It carries a similar sound as his latest album Blonde with the unconventional song structure and verses that walk the line between singing and rapping. The radio show came as a surprise announcement from Beats 1 and delivered in a big way. Check out the original version below and the A$AP Rocky remix here.

Shortly after the release of Calvin Harris' amazing single "Slide" feat. Frank Ocean and Migos, we were blessed with the announcement of Frank's new Beats 1 show called "blonded RADIO" and the first episode has already gone live.

He kicks off the show with "Nights" off his blonde LP and covers a wide away of artists for the remainder of the episode including Future, Prince, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Aphex Twin and more. Frank also interviews Jay Z throughout the episode about the state of radio today.

"It’s pretty much an advertisement model...these places are not even based on music. Their playlist isn't based on music...It’s not even about the DJ discovering what music is best." -- Jay Z

Stream And Download Calvin Harris’ New Song "Slide" Ft. Frank Ocean & Migos

Calvin Frank Migos

Calvin Harris has just dropped what might end up being the biggest collaboration of the year. He's teamed up with Frank Ocean and Migos for his new single, "Slide", and it's straight vibes. The song carries a mellow rhythm featuring subdued piano keys and bright percussion. If you need to unwind and just sway to a good tune, "Slide" is it.

Rumors of this track began to brew in late January when Calvin teased a clip of it on Snapchat and then did so once again earlier this week. All rumors were to put to rest when Calvin tweeted out the official credits for the release. Migos members Offset and Quavo are both credited as writers on the track, in addition to Calvin and Frank.

The collaboration is unexpected in a number of ways. Frank Ocean is coming off a massive year, having released his 45-minute visual album, Endless, and his long-awaited Blonde LP that spans 17 tracks. He also announced his first live shows in three years. To see him follow up these major releases and announcements with a collaboration of this magnitude is definitely a pleasant surprise. Not to mention that "Slide" sounds like the most radio-friendly work we've seen him take part in.

The timing also could not have been better as they currently have one of the biggest tracks in the world right now with "Bad & Boujee", which has even received the remix treatment from ZHU. On Calvin Harris' end, the DJ / producer is no stranger to working with artists in other genres. In the past, he's collaborated with Big Sean, Haim, John Newman and Rihanna. However, this may be his most unique collaboration to date and certainly the most timely given the current buzz around Frank Ocean and Migos. Stream "Slide" below and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Enjoy!
