One of dance music’s biggest stars returned to the scene with the assistance of a pop star and a rapper, while a K-pop group emerged triumphant with a brand new album. But which release was your favorite?
Calvin Harris fans have been anxiously awaiting the follow-up to the DJ’s 2017 release, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, and the first taste of the new project has finally arrived after a near five-year wait. “Potion” is a collaborative effort between Dua Lipa and Young Thug. Lipa simmers on the sultry track, while the rapper provides an assist by rhyming about the debauchery that a good summer can provide. The result is a sweltering, soon-to-be hit that’s primed for dominating party playlists over the next few months.
Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN‘s highly anticipated album, Face the Sun, has arrived — and with it, tons of bangers. The 13-piece K-pop group initially went for the more sentimental on the album’s lead single, “Darl+ing,” which serves as a love letter and declaration of appreciation to their devoted fans. “Hot,” the second single from the project, provides exactly what its title suggests: heat. The global artists come into their own with electric energy, further cementing their star status in the K-pop genre and beyond.
