Calvin Harris is ready to drift you away with an ocean breeze thanks to "Slide," his new collaboration with Migos and Frank Ocean. The DJ/producer first teased the track on Snapchat last month and finally dropped it for our listening pleasure last night. Stream the gleaming tune below:
"Slide" is the perfect summertime tune, with its warm synth melodies that are reminiscent of tropical waters and Ocean's mumbling vocals. "Do you slide on all your nights like this?/ Do you try on all your nights like this?" he croons on the opening notes. Migos' Quavo and Offset tie everything together with their signature warbled harmonies.
The new track is Ocean's latest release since last August's Blonde album and follows Migos' Culture LP (released January 27). It is also Harris' first song since last fall's dancefloor jam "My Way" and "This Is What You Came For" with Rihanna. Earlier this week, he tweeted that he has more tracks "sonically designed to make you feel fucking incredible."
