Five years ago this writer would have never said, written or thought, “Calvin Harris put out one of my favorite albums of the year.” Yet here I am, still grooving to his back-to-basics fifth album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (and, every now and then, its instrumentals project).
He’s now dropped off and official vide for “Faking It,” with Kehlani and Lil Yachty. Following “Hard To Love” and two versions of “Feels,” “Faking It” features the artists dwelling in an icy kingdom. What does it have to do with the actual song? Nothing, really, but it simply serves as a reminder that Funk Wav Bounces was a pretty good project.
