Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande, Pharrell & Young Thug’s Bouncy “Heatstroke”
Calvin Harris got the internet buzzing earlier this week when he announced “Heatstroke.” The track, which features the all-star cast of Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams and Young Thug, arrived tonight (March 30) and it’s another slick hip-hop/dance hybrid in the mold of “Slide.” The rappers take charge on the bouncy banger, delivering the verses. As for Ari? Well, she’s basically a backing vocalist on this — only helping out on the chorus: “When you do things like this and you set me free, how can anyone get tired?”
“Heatstroke” is the second of 10 singles the Scottish DJ plans to release in 2017. Of course, the first was “Slide.” That track also boasted serious star power (Frank Ocean & Migos) and is shaping up to be something of a sleeper hit. The blurry-eyed party jam is just outside the top 20 on pop radio and has already racked up 70 million streams on Spotify. You can listen to Calvin’s latest anthem below.
