When you put together two of our favorite artists on a song, you can almost guarantee the result is going to be fire.
Both SZA and Calvin Harris had a very solid 2017 to say the least. SZA’s debut studio album, CTRL, completely blew up and put her directly in the spotlight, racking up five Grammy nominations. Calvin Harris took a break from EDM to drop his unexpected Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1 album earning himself a spot on our top electronic albums of 2017 and even earned him a Grammy nomination.
SZA’s “The Weekend”, is the first track to receive a Funk Wav Remix by Calvin Harris, and we hope it’s not the last. Calvin turns SZA’s yearning, lustful ballad into a warm, dreamy version of the original, perfect for taking your mind off the fact that winter is rapidly approaching. The piano chords alone are charming, but the track is really tied together by that new, funky bassline and those smooth synths. If you just finally got SZA’s track out of your head, prepare to have it stuck back in there. Enjoy!
