Calvin Harris’ new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1 has finally come out and I’m loving it! As a huge Calvin Harris fan I’ve been listening to it over the last few days and most of it is great!
- Slide ft. Frank Ocean, Migos
This song was the lead single off the album and has such a great “California road-trip” vibe to it. 9/10
- Cash Out ft. ScHoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR, D.R.A.M.
This is the first song on the album that hasn’t been released as a single. It has a strange funky walking beat to it. 6/10
- Heatstroke ft. Young Thug, Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande
This song was released as the second single but not as good as other songs on the album despite the featured artists. 6/10
- Rollin ft. Future, Khalid
One of the better songs on the album. Love the mix of Future & Khalid on the track. 7/10
- Prayers Up ft. Travis Scott, A-Trak
Works with the album but not one I’ll have on repeat. 5/10
- Holiday ft. Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Takeoff
I love pretty much anything with Snoop on it so that helps a ton and John Legend’s voice is incredible. 7/10
- Skrt On Me ft. Nicki Minaj
Very heavily auto-tuned Nicki Minaj with very little rap and a not so memorable beat. 3/10
- Feels ft. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Big Sean
Obsessed with the combo of voices and Big Sean’s verse on this. 10/10
- Faking It ft. Kehlani, Lil Yachty
Kehlani takes things to a slow-jam on this one. Very catchy and surprisingly one of the best tracks on the album as you don’t generally associate Calvin Harris and slow jams. 8/10
- Hard to Love ft. Jessie Reyez
Another slow song that was unexpected. Chill and enjoyable. 7/10
* Disclaimer: I’m far from a music critic; I was just looking for an excuse to listen to this album again at work! 10/10 success!
