"Heatstroke" is Harris' second single released this year since February's "Slide" with Frank Ocean and Migos. His latest is another all-star affair with Grande, Williams and Young Thug in the mix. Calvin wrote on Twitter that he is aiming for "feel good + inclusive" music this year and "Heatstroke" definitely hits the mark.
Harris supplies "Heatstroke" with bouncy synths and a funky bassline. Young Thug leads the feel good charge, spitting, "I'm tryna f**k with you until we on life support." Grande and Williams bring that feeling home with breezy yet soulful performances. "Release / Let go and have a good time," Pharrell sings. On "Heatstroke," Calvin takes a less is more approach and the result is something that's simple, sweet and sunny.
"Heatstroke" featuring Young Thug, Grande and Williams is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet on when to expect Harris' follow-up to 2014's Motion album.
