Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Pharrell & Big Sean’s Trippy “Feels” Video

0

After grabbing our attention with a series of Instagram posts, Calvin Harris rolls out his “Feels” visual tonight (June 26). It’s the first track from his Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 LP (due June 30) to get the video treatment, which explains the elaborate set-up. The clip, which was directed by Emil Nava, begins with Pharrell Williams chilling in a row boat, while the Scottish DJ plays bass in the background. Katy Perry then takes us back to the Prism era with a long, flowing wig and floral dress. (Think of it as “Roar” on acid).

Last but not least is Big Sean, who delivers his verse from the comfort of a folding chair. The whole video is treated with a psychedelic filter and artificial color scheme, which adds to the disorienting effect. I guess this means “Feels” is going to be pushed as a proper single. While the melodic groove doesn’t scream hit in the way “This Is What You Came For” did, for example, it’s definitely a grower and has got off to a good start on Spotify racking up 20 million streams in two weeks.

Katy Perry Joins Calvin Harris, Pharrell & Big Sean On “Feels”

0

Calvin Harris rolls out the latest single from Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 tonight (June 15) and it’s another star-studded affair. “Feels,” a deft blend of dancehall, hip-hop and and electronica, features Pharrell Williams, Big Sean and, somewhat amusingly given the identity of DJ’s ex-girlfriend and recent events, Katy Perry. Coincidental shade aside (I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt), the track is a silky smooth banger about being open to a serious connection.

“Now nothing ever last forever no, one minute you’re here and the next you’re gone,” Pharrell begins the song over reggae-tinged beat. “So I respect you, wanna take it slow.” Katy then takes over for the chorus. “Don’t be afraid to catch feels,” she coos sexily. “Ride drop top and chase thrills, I know you ain’t afraid about this.” Big Sean then closes out the song with a fiery verse. Like “Heatstroke” before it, “Feels” doesn’t scream radio single. It is a glorious mood-setter, however. Listen below.

Calvin Harris Teams Up With Katy Perry, Pharrell & Big Sean On “Feels”

Witness only dropped on Friday (June 9), but fans won’t have to wait too long to hear new music from Katy Perry. It seems the pop star features on an upcoming collaboration with Calvin Harris called “Feels.” The purported cover of the track, which also boasts verses from Pharrell Williams and Big Sean, surfaced online today and the Scottish DJ later shared a very brief snippet in a sampler of his new LP, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. (You can pre-order it here). Of course, the club king famously dated Taylor Swift. Which could make this the next chapter in their ongoing beef.

As for Calvin, “Feels” could be the fourth of 10 singles he plans to release in 2017. He has already rolled out “Rollin,” which features Future and Khalid and “Heatstroke.” The latter included input from Young Thug, Pharrell and Ariana Grande. The first and most successful cut was “Slide.” That track showcased the talents of Frank Ocean and Migos, and is shaping up to be something of a sleeper hit. The blurry-eyed party jam is still climbing the Billboard Hot 100 and has racked up a whopping 238 million Spotify streams.

Epic Records brought out the big guns for Camila Cabello’s debut solo single. “Crying In The Club” was co-written by Sia, Cashmere Cat and Benny Blanco, and includes a sample of Christina Aguilera’s legendary “Genie In A Bottle.” It looks like no expense has been spared on the album either. In a new interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the former Fifth Harmony diva walked listeners through the multitude of high-profile collaborators on dramatically-titled debut LP, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving..

Now for the details. The 20-year-old revealed that she has recorded a song with Ed Sheeran called “The Boy,” which she likens to James Brown (?) and describes as “funky.” There’s a track with Pharrell called “Havana” (obviously, a nod to her Cuban heritage) and a banger with Charli XCX called “Scar Tissue.” Oh, and Camila also recorded two songs with Ryan Tedder and one with Major Lazer. Watch the full interview below for the all the tea.
