Calvin Harris feat. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean l SME
Calvin Harris featuring Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean, has gained this week's Hot Shot Debut, by entering the Hot 100 at #32 with Feels, which is follow-up single to Rollin', which featured Future & Khalid, but failed to chart on the Airplay charts in Australia.
Calvin Harris presents another star cast for latest single ‘Feels’
Calvin Harris grew out to be one of the absolute most successful DJs and prodcers in the world and he could probably collaborate with almost every pop star he chooses. After hit singles with the likes of Rihanna, Ellie Goulding and Florence Welch, Harris these days isn’t satisfied with one featuring star on his singles anymore. The irresistibly catchy lead single ‘Slide’ taken from his upcoming album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (released on 30th June) had both Frank Ocean and Migos while follow up ‘Heatstroke’ was recorded with Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams and Young Thug. His latest effort, ‘Feels’, is a collaboration with Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean. Do these multiple artist collab projects actually work?
While ‘Heatstroke’ lacked focus and a strong hook, Calvin Harris redeems himself with ‘Feels’. The funky, disco influenced production is lush and summery and all three vocalists actually add something to the track. Pharrell’s verses swing in a laidback manner while Katy Perry effortlessly lays out the smooth and seductive earworm chorus, something her latest solo album Witness desperately missed. Big Sean speeds up the pace slightly with a flawless rap verse. The title summer hit of 2017 might have been snatched by DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller today, but ‘Feels’ by Calvin Harris sure is a worthy second place for now.
Maggie Lindemann feat. Cheat Codes x Cade Remix l WMA
Maggie Lindemann feat. Cheat Codes x Cade with Pretty Girl (Remix), makes a move up the chart, but it has taken radio a while to jump on board & give it the airplay it deserves. Pretty Girl, which makes the Jump from #69 to #44, making a move of 25 places and makes it, This Weeks Power Hit.
We don't review a lot of singles, so when they do come across they usually have to be good. Well, we found one that is an ear worm and is getting us ready for the summertime (as I am sitting in my office listening to a rain storm outside). Maggie Lindemann is on the verge of something big in her own right. Her dark, alt-pop sound is addictive and has that feel of a BANKS or Halsey, which is to say it is moody and brooding, but the remix of her latest single, “Pretty Girl” by Cheat Codes and Cade is something completely different.
The tempo is increased slight and the add synth gives this track a much more bubbly feel without being too cheesy. The Texas-native’s vocals are still tinged with that anti-hero pop sound that still exudes her independence. The original mix of “Pretty Girl” is great, but the remix is excellent. It is not often a remix outperforms the original. Well done.
