Calvin Harris is here to steal the summer before it even starts.
"Vol. 2 is gonna be mad," Harris tweeted coyly. But that was all fans needed to hear to get the message loud and clear—there will indeed be a successor to Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.
Harris' last album arrived seemingly an eternity ago in the summer of 2017. A feature-heavy electronic album stylistically at the intersection of uplifting funk and hip-hop, the record continues to stand out as something of a black sheep in Harris' broader discography. Nonetheless, it has aged incredibly well, and at the time of writing the album has cleared well over 2 billion streams on Spotify alone.
It's impossible to discuss Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 however without mentioning its star-power. Harris secured a dream list of features, including Frank Ocean, Katy Perry, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Khalid and John Legend, among others..
