I have a feeling that Funk Wav Bounces, Volume 1, the new album from Calvin Harris, will be something that you play all throughout the summer and quite frankly, throughout the rest of 2017!

Calvin Harris enlisted some of the biggest names in music like Ariana Grande, Pharrell, Nicki Minaj and Future to help him out with his new project; one of Calvin’s collaborators sparked some controversy, more on that later..

This album features the lead single, ‘Slide’, that has Frank Ocean and Migos on the record.



It also includes, ‘Heatstroke’ featuring Ariana Grande, Young Thug and Pharrell,



And just last week, Calvin released a brand new song featuring Katy Perry, Big Sean and Pharrell called, ‘Feels’.



Katy Perry’s inclusion in the album had fans of Taylor Swift very unhappy seeing as Katy and Taylor don’t exactly get along (but Katy would like to bury the hatchet) and Calvin and Taylor used to date.






Just this week, Calvin spoke with GQ U.K. about his breakup with Taylor saying, “It’s very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. I’m not good at being a celebrity. But when it ended, all hell broke loose,

He added, “Now, I see that Twitter thing as a result of me succumbing to pressure. It took me a minute to realize that none of that matters. I’m a positive guy.”

Calvin even addressed these series of tweets that he sent out…




He told the publication, “It was completely the wrong instinct…I was protecting what I see as my one talent in the world being belittled. It felt like things were piling on top of me and that was when I snapped.”

Back in February, Calvin promised that he was bringing out ‘Feel INCREDIBLE music’ and was really excited to share it with his fans!
