Calvin Harris taps Dua Lipa and Young Thug for his latest tune “Potions,” the lead single off Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2.
Calvin Harris is a pillar of dance music that needs no introduction and has continually evolved his sound over the years. From the synth-laden retro vibe on 2007’s I Created Disco to dominating the main stage EDM in its heyday with globally successful records 18 Months and Motion, he’s left few stones unturned on his quest for musical greatness.
Back in 2017, Calvin Harris dropped Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which featured massive collaborations from Pharrell, Frank Ocean, Katy Perry, and more as a testament to Harris’ heavyweight production ability. Now, he’s returned to the spotlight with the lead single from Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2, “Potion,” which sees him team up with Dua Lipa and Young Thug.
Funk Wav Bounces Vol 2 is primed and ready to be one of the most important dance records of the year. Much like the first iteration of the series, the second strives to highlight Harris’ collaborative abilities with artists outside the dance realm while pinpointing the acclaimed producer’s one-of-a-kind knack for turning everything he touches into gold. “Potion” delivers what fans have been waiting for – a refined yet gritty guitar plucks away atop airy filters, a smooth baseline that provides just a touch of R&B before sun-drenched vocals from Dua Lipa kick in the groove that will have you two-stepping in no time at all.
Little information has surfaced about this next phase for Calvin Harris, but one thing is for sure, his return to the spotlight is a welcomed one. While everyone waits patiently for the official release date of Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2, “Potions” is the perfect concoction to get us in the mood for those long warm nights.
Get a taste of Calvin Harris’ “Potion” by watching the music video on YouTube or listening on your preferred platform, and prepare yourself for Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2 which is set to arrive later this summer.
