Slide, a song by Calvin Harris, Frank Ocean, Migos on Spotify
The Scottish DJ-producer has been teasing the collaboration over the past few weeks on Snapchat. Earlier this week, he took to Twitter to reveal that the song will be called ‘Slide’. Then yesterday, he tweeted that the track would be coming that night.
‘Slide’ is rare collaboration from Ocean. It’s also his first piece of new music since last year’s albums ‘Blonde’ and ‘Endless’.
Harris had previously been pictured heading to the studio with Ocean last summer.
Recently, Harris took to Twitter to announced that he has “more joyful music” coming in 2017, adding that he feels like “it’s missing from the world. And it was missing from my life. So I created it!”
Harris added: “I worked with the greatest artists of our generation !!! I’m in the mixing stage now. I listen back and can’t believe what we created… In 2017 I’m making music to make your soul happy !!!! Not feel good music. Feel INCREDIBLE music”.
Meanwhile, Frank Ocean won Best International Male Artist at last week’s VO5 NME Awards 2017. Also shortlisted in the category were Kanye West, Drake, Chance The Rapper, The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar.
Ocean did not turn up to the ceremony at London’s O2 Academy Brixton or send a video acceptance speech. Instead, guest presenter Matt Berry accepted the award on his behalf. “Sorry to piss on your chips, but Frank Ocean couldn’t make it. So it’s mine,” he said.
