Calvin Harris reunites with PARTYNEXTDOOR on his infectious single, “Nuh Ready Nuh Ready.” The pair previously worked together alongside ScHoolboy Q and DRAM on “Cash Out,” an album track on last year’s Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.Released today (February 8), their latest is a buoyant club cut with massive potential. True to his promises of musical evolution, it boasts a new sonic direction and provides a much-needed update on trop-pop’s overplayed productions.
Fusing house beats with tropical-sounding synths, the pair have created a sizzling number that vibrates with energy. On it, PARTYNEXTDOOR shares his hesitancy before getting involved in a relationship. “I had dreams of fuckin’ the baddest bitch. Last night I awoke up and I fucked the baddest bitch. I thought I would be ready when I seen her when I was in the disco,” he boasts. However, there is trouble in paradise as he admits to not being ready for a serious relationship. “Don’t want mi children and ting’. Mi nuh ready fi all dem tings,” he announces on the earworm-worthy chorus.
The accompanying video is a neon-drenched affair that makes use of special effects to create a high-energy spectacle. After taking a helicopter ride into a city, the crooner and a crew of dancers deliver choreography in front of a green screen. Calvin makes an appearance toward the middle of the visual, but PARTYNEXTDOOR undeniably steals the show. With the right push, this could become a big hit for the pair. Despite receiving critical acclaim, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 did not find much love on the charts. Hopefully, his latest will make up for lost time.
