Normani taps Calvin Harris for two new tracksNormani Calvin Harris

Normani has teamed up with Calvin Harris on two new original tracks. After sparking rumors of a collaboration in the works when they were spotted walking the red carpet of the American Music Awards together, the Normani x Calvin Harris project has confirmed the two artists are walking the walk just a few months later.

“Checklist” and “Slow Down” sees the former Fifth Harmony member continue on her star-studded solo career, following work with Khalid, Kehlani and Quavo. The project also sees Harris exploring new territory heading into music with inspirations from reggae and dancehall. While his other contemporaries, Major Lazer and Dillon Francis, have done similar exploration on recent projects, Harris has shown his reign in the upper echelons of pop will continue as he bridges international sounds with mainstream top 40 accessibility.

Without question, 2016 is the year of Drake. His fourth studio album, Views, has officially gone quadruple platinum, selling over four million units under RIAA’s new policy which includes streamed plays. Let’s hope they spelled everything right on the plaque…
