Though he’s shared the list of collaborators and featured artists for his upcoming album, Calvin Harris has kept the official track list for Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 close to the vest. Now, as the album’s June 30 release date inches closer, Calvin has finally disclosed what his fans are in for when the album drops, sharing the full track list to his star-studded new LP.

Hip-hop is well represented too, with Travis Scott, Lil Yachty, and D.R.A.M. featured on the album’s booming list of credits. Singles “Slide,” “Rollin” and “Feels” have already been released, teasing one of the most hotly-anticipated records of the summer and in just a few days, we’ll be hearing Funk Wavin its full glory. See the track list below:
Steve Aoki is a name synonymous with dance music. The now legendary DJ got his start with high profile remixes and insanely catchy originals. Now he has announced a departure from electronic dance music with his new album, ‘Kolony’. Steve Aoki Goes Hip Hop Steve released a little info on the new album including a
We just named Migos’ most recent album Culture one of the 50 Best Albums Of 2017 So Far, and it seems that they already have follow-up on the way. As Spin reports, Quavo announced the news with a freestyle over the “Bad And Boujee” beat during a recent performance on Future’s … More »
No collaboration is out of reach for Steve Aoki. The dance music giant recently hinted at working with K-Pop group BTS and scored his highest charting hit yet with former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson on “Just Hold On.” Aoki’s forthcoming album, Kolony, is no exception; the 39-year-old producer enlists hip hop stars Migos and Lil Yachty for the third lift, an energetic new anthem titled “Night Call.”
Who better to feature on the rap-focused project than two of the most sought after acts in the game, who rap their signature party-ready bars over Aoki’s trap production. Aoki debuted “Night Call” back in May, at Austin’s JIMBLAYA Festival. Out July 21, the album also features rap heavy-hitters Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, T-Pain and Wale.
Steve, Steve, Steve, what are we going to do with you. Why shamelessly collaborate with popular rap artists when the result will only end up being exactly what everyone has expected. ‘Night Call’ is formulaic and relatively forgettable. Steve Aoki Holds To The Status Quo There is nothing actually wrong with ‘Night Call’. It is
Last week it was reported that Calvin Harris is slated to appear on DJ Khaled’sGrateful, landinglater this month with a stacked cast of collaborators. One week after Khaled’s album of A-listers hits shelves, Calvin will follow suit with Funk Wav Bounce Vol. 1 featuring an equally commanding list of supporting artists across ten new tracks on June 30. The album’s first three singles feature major star power with Future, Migos, Ariana Grande, Young Thug and Frank Ocean, though it looks like the Fly Eye proponent has a lot more where that came from on the rest of the LP.
Calvin Harris continues to show that you can remain as a dance music superstar while living out a fantastically successful career in pop and hip hop. His collaboration with Offset and Frank Ocean, ‘Slide’ was damn near perfect and hit platinum status in just four months. Then came the announcement of his compilation album which
DJ Khaled’s much-hyped (and even more self-hyped) forthcoming albumis finally ready to be heard, and with a first glance at the record’s newly announced tracklist, Grateful is looking to be stacked with star power. Like the 1992 Olympic Dream Team of hip-hop stacked. The album, supposedly produced by Khaled’s infant son Asahd, is due to be released on June 23. DJ Khaled has built his namesake on being the incontrovertible king of mega-collaborations, and Grateful is looking like it may be his…or baby Asahd’s magnum opus. Among the endless A-listers lined up to be featured on the upcoming LP, dance pop’s favorite super producer, Calvin Harris, is credited on “Don’t Quit” along with Travis Scott and Jerimih.
Scott, Future, Rick Ross, and Chance The Rapper all make multiple appearances on the album, along with features that include hip-hop royalty Beyoncé, Jay Z, Nas, Rihanna, and of course anyone who uses Snapchat remembers when the Drake vocals came in. At an extensive 23 tracks, with Justin Bieber, Gucci Mane, with so many others in between, Khaled has managed to pack as much wide-appeal reach into one album as it could possibly fit.
Calvin Harris’ foray into massive pop and hip-hop crossovers continues this summer with “Don’t Quit,” which, aligned with Khaled’s midas touch, has the potential to be one of Calvin’smost commercially viable highlights of the year.
