Benny Blanco taps Calvin Harris for vocals on infectious new single, ‘I Found You’I Found You Calvin Harris Benny Blanco

Longtime fans of Calvin Harris might recall that in addition to his penchant for creating irresistibly catchy EDM records, the Scotsman is also quite the crooner. Quite a few of his productions — including his smash hits, “Feel So Close,” and “Summer” — involve his garbled, yet in-tune lyrics. However, it’s been quite some time since we’ve heard Harris get behind the mic.

The collaboration is destined to land in the heads of the people it touches — and stay there.
