Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa – One Kiss

Calvin Harris has been playing with our hearts by teasing us with a return to the dance music world. In February, the highest paid DJ in the world punked us with the semi pop/dance track ‘Nuh Nuh Ready’ which did not sound drastically different than his material on Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. The tease continued when he had an interview with BBC Radio 1 where he credited Virtual Self‘s ‘Ghost Voices’ for reigniting his love for EDM. Next, came an Instagram comment stating that “Nothing below 124 BPM, I like that tempo a lot and maybe more than 128 BPM”. This comment was hinting that new house music from Harris was definitely on the horizon as the prime tempo range for house music is 118 to 135 BPM.

Well world, Calvin Harris may be back to dance music.

His most recent single ‘One Kiss’ has everything original Calvin Harris fans were looking for. It has the perfect tempo, smooth piano chords, a driving dance beat and a killer vocal. To let you exactly how much people love this track, ‘One Kiss’ has amassed 6.2 million views since its release on April 5 and that number is quickly rising. Now, Harris has made a perfect transition from coming back from the pop world by featuring Dua Lipa. Clearly the presence of one of pop’s biggest vocalist will help propel the track even further, but all of that aside, Dua Lipa’s voice is PERFECT for this track. Her dark and seductive voice seamless fits into the instrumentation, resulting in a hit. THIS is the Calvin Harris fans first fell in love with. THIS is the unique sound that needed to return.
