ICYMI: Calvin Harris’ Newest Album is a Venture Into 'Funk'
The EDM and Pop machine that constantly cranks out hits known as Calvin Harris has taken a chill new style with his new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1.
For awhile now Harris has been releasing hits from the album, more notably “Slide” and my favorite “Rollin”. That coupled with not-so-subtle promotion and hints has had us itching to take this jammin’ adventure with Harris and our friends in the Pop scene.
We didn’t expect to see this from the producer of Pop and EDM hits but we think we like it! Aside from the cool feeling of the songs, we see some of the top artists from every genre. The artists that bring this poolside chill are: Migos, Pharrell, Ariana, Future, Snoop Dog, Nicki Manaj, John Legend, Katy Perry, Big Sean and many more!
As far as reviews go, The Guardian and others suggests that Calvin has, “...been there done that. Neither a triumph or a disaster…”. Other websites and fans around the world have ridiculed the album due to its lack of originality and number of hits and others have praised it for the same reasons. We’ll let you be the judge.
