Calvin Harris Finally Drops Long Teased Single, "Heatstroke"
The more expectant Calvin Harris fans recognized that "Slide" was only the beginning of a series of masterfully produced tracks to be released by the "How Deep Is Your Love" hit maker.
Dropped hours ago, the latest Calvin Harris branded product bears the title "Heatstroke," a single on which Ariana Grande, Young Thug, and Pharrell Williams are credited. Following in the footsteps of Slide would be a feat, yet Heatstroke emerges as a release that isn't overshadowed by Slide, but rather that which continues to trailblaze through the current climate of dance music.
An offering that Harris enthusiasts knew would once again marry genres, Hearstroke evokes jazz in its opening, an onset marked by Pharrell Williams's smooth vocals. The jazzy beginning to the track gradually transitions to adopt a more R&B/soulful sound. Ariana Grande finally chimes in at the 1:27 mark, lending her refined vocals further complement the already impressive track. Heatstroke appears below.
