Calvin Harris Previews ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’

Ready for Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1? With just a couple weeks until release, Calvin Harris has revealed a trailer for his forthcoming star-studded album.

Shot in a tropical paradise, the two-minute clip features a beautiful, musical, and colorful parrot, who plays snippets from the album on a record player.

D.R.A.M. sings on one of those snippets, offering his infectious harmonies over head-knocking bass riffs. “Let’s party like the ’70s,” he sings. “Blowing on hella trees / Broccoli and collard greens.”

Smoking is also part of Travis Scott’s snippet, which appears to come from a different track. But the clip also finds La Flame singing about religion. “Mama said she wants me in the church,” he sings. “Before the day they put me in a hearse.”

While the parrot bobs his head along to the tracks, Big Sean’s voice blares out. “I feel my old flings was just preparing me,” he raps. “When I say I want you, say it back, parakeet.”

To go along with these scenes, the clip also includes the names of the artists who are set to appear on the highly-anticipated project, including Snoop Dogg, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, ScHoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR, A-Trak, Kehlani, Lil Yachty, Jessie Reyez, and Takeoff.

Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 drops June 30 featuring the previously-released singles “Slide” with Frank Ocean and Migos, the Future and Khalid-assisted “Rollin,” and “Heatstroke” featuring Young Thug, Ariana Grande, and Pharrell Williams.
