Calvin Harris Taps Ariana Grande, Pharrell, & Young Thug for ‘Heatstroke’

Hot off his Frank Ocean and Migos collaboration “Slide,” Calvin Harris is bringing more heat with his next single.

On Tuesday (March 28), the super-producer announced “Heatstroke,” a collaboration with a trifecta of stars—Young Thug, Ariana Grande, and Pharrell Williams.

The song was written by Harris, Thugger, Skateboard P, and Starrah, who also shows up with additional vocals. Harris produced the track with additional production from Pharrell.

Last month, Harris explained what his aim will be this year. “More joyful music in 2017,” he wrote. “I feel like it’s missing from the world. And it was missing from my life. So I created it !!!! I worked with the greatest artists of our generation !!! I’m in the mixing stage now. I listen back and can’t believe what we created !!!!!

“All my songs in 2017 have been sonically designed to make you feel fucking incredible,” he added. “Not feel good music. Feel INCREDIBLE music.”

“Heatstroke” has no release date. Meanwhile, Harris’ “Slide” slides to No. 55 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
