Calvin Harris's "Feels" is The Perfect Summer "Funk Wav Bounce"
Calvin Harris is sitting pretty. The Scottish “This is What You Came For” producer looks to June 30th as the approaching release date for Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, Harris’s long anticipated studio album, succeeding his previous 2014 release, “Motion.” As release day draws closer, Harris has gifted listeners another single off of the arriving album, a bubbly Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Big Sean collaborative number, “Feels.”
Undeniably groovy, the track is reminiscent of the album’s title, “Funk Wav Bounces,” emerging as a certified “funk wav bounce.” Pharrell’s silky vocals function as a perfect introduction to Perry’s vocals, floating over the background instrumental. Big Sean enters the track as the final featured artist, delivering what is arguably one of his best crafted verses, and curiously, one that several listeners have contemplated as being relative to Harris’s ex, Taylor Swift. The theory isn’t far fetched given Perry’s part on the track, yet beef aside, Feels hits all the right notes.
Feels may now be streamed on Spotify
