Calvin Harris taps 21 Savage for ‘New Money’
This week, Calvin Harris finally shared his star-studded list of features that will appear on Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2. Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, Tinashe, Halsey, Offset, Pharrell and more will help round out this long-awaited record, including 21 Savage appearing on “New Money.” The single was officially released on Friday (July 1), and it’s a groove that fans are already praising.
Harris sat down with Zane Lowe for Apple Music 1 last month and said he was amazed at the number of artists lending their voices to Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2.
“I just wanted to do that again and really go out there and know that I can get these amazing artists on this music that no one else will give them,” he said. “And you know, fuck do it, man. Honestly, that’s a record that I still can’t believe exists. I’m not just saying that. And that’s the next single, he there’s something that I don’t know how I did, or how we did it Not only is there someone who, someone in a song where they shouldn’t be in that song, but they sound perfect for that. And then there’s another person who’s an absolute legend, and then another person who’s an absolute legend. And it’s like, ‘Wow, that doesn’t seem real.'”
