Calvin Harris is Trying to Get Hip-Hop Fans on Board With ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’

Calvin Harris is looking to expand his already large fan base and it’s working.

Following the release of the atypical collabs “Slide” featuring Frank Ocean and Migos, and “Heatstroke,” featuring Thug, Pharrell and Ariana Grande, Calvin is prepping his new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 for release.

Due out next month, the project is jam packed with hip-hop A-listers including Nicki Minaj, Future, ScHoolboy Q, Travis Scott, Future, Big Sean, Migos, Pharrell Williams, Lil Yachty, Young Thug, and Snoop Dogg.

Cavin also taps a few R&B voices like Frank, Grande, John Legend, Kehlani, Khalid, D.R.A.M., and PARTYNEXTDOOR.

Can’t say I’ve ever gravitated to the DJ’s previous work but my eyes and ears are open for his forthcoming project. Although weary of oversaturated and star heavy projects, we may be in for a treat if “Slide” and “Heatstroke” is any indication.  Harris’ fifth album is due out June 30th.
