Calvin Harris and 21 Savage:
Harris is getting the fans fired up. Calvin Harris released his track “New Money” featuring 21 Savage on Friday. The song will be included on Harris’ Funk Wave Bounces Vol. 2 the long awaited sequel to his studio album released in 2017.
Harris announced the release date and star studded feature list shortly before announcing “New Money”. 21 Savage will be joined by Lil Durk, Pharrell, Pusha-T, Latto, Normani, Busta Rhymes, and more. Harris has already given fans one other cut: “Potion” featuring Dua Lipa and Young Thug. However, Harris is yet to release the full track list.
In May, Harris spoke about Vol. 2 during an interview with Apple Music, explaining how the second installment differs from the first.
“I felt like the first one, the idea was there, but I didn’t carefully carry it through”. He went on to say, “With this one I wanted to have more live drums, guitars… I wanted the original essence. I wanted the layers and the grit and the dirt. And I don’t want things to be mixed too perfectly. I want things to be too loud, and I want things to be like, Fly and the Family Stone, when it’s just mixed on the fly”.
Finally, you can listen to “New Money” now on all major platforms. Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2 is set to arrive Aug. 5.
