The Knocks

The Knocks are pushing boundaries and catapulting us into the future with the release of their new track “Heat” feat. Sam Nelson Harris which Billboard is premiering exclusively today (Oct. 21).

“Heat” is an innovative, electronic burner with a sultry, R&B sound that will keep your head bopping and finger on the “play” button. The track is off of their forthcoming project off the heels of their triumphant debut album “55,” that was released in March.

On working with Harris, the duo said, “We have known Sam for a long time, and every time we send him a track he delivers. This is now the fourth song we have worked on together that's been released." Harris certainly brings a unique energy to the track that effortlessly helps to blur genre lines, something The Knocks are known for doing with their collaborations ranging from Cam’ron to Walk The Moon.

The NYC electronic duo is certainly staying busy. In addition to working on new music, B-Roc and JPatt are also supporting Justin Bieber on the European leg of his Purpose Tour.
