Calvin Harris recently released his anticipated single “Feels” featuring Katy Perry, Big Sean and Pharrell. The song is his fourth release from the album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 which is due out at the end of June.
Calvin Harris Announces ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1'
Back on May 10th, Calvin Harris announced that a new album was in the works Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, Kehlani, Future, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Big Sean, John Legend, Khalid, and a handful other superstar artists. Then three days later, Calvin Harris announced that he was almost done recording the album.
Fans Began To Question Katy Perry's Involvement
From the start, fans quickly began to question Katy Perry's involvement in the new album. While it was rumored at one point that Calvin Harris was dating Katy Perry, fans jumped to conclusions believing that the whole thing was to throw shade at Harris' ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
“Feels” Lyrics Relate to Taylor Swift
Now that the song has been released, Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Big Sean and Pharrell's lyrics seem to be pretty spot on to the Taylor Swift drama.
Well nothing ever last forever, no
One minute you’re here and the next you’re gone
So I respect you, wanna take it slow
I need a mental receipt to know this moment I owe
Do you mind if I steal a kiss? (Chop, chop)
A little souvenir, can I steal it from you?
To memorize the way you shock me
The way you move it here (Hey)
Just wanna feel it from you (Hey)
Katy Perry's Part:
Don’t be afraid to catch feels
Ride drop top and chase thrills (Hey)
I know you ain’t afraid to pop pills (Hey)
Baby, I know you ain’t scared to catch feels
Feels with me
Pharrell and Big Sean's Part:
Goddamn, I know you love to make an entrance
Do you like getting paid or getting paid attention?
You mixed the wrong guys with the right intentions
In the same bed, but it still feel long distance
She’s looking for a little more consistency
But when you stop looking you gon’ find what’s meant to be
And honestly, I’m way too done with the hoes
I cut off all my exes for your x and o’s
I feel my old flings was just preparing me
When I say I want you, say it back, parakeet
Fly in first-class through the air, Airbnb
I’m the best you had, you just be comparing me to me
I’ma ‘at’ this at you, if I put you on my phone
And upload it, it’ll get maximum views
I came in through in the clutch with the lipsticks and phones
Wear your fave cologne just to get you alone
