SZA – The Weekend (Calvin Harris’ Funk Wav Remix)
Calvin Harris’ funk train continues to steam full speed ahead, bringing SZA on board for a Funk Wav remix of “The Weekend,” a track off of the singer’s debut studio album, Ctrl. An extension of the groove that Harris proffered on recent release, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. I, Harris’ take maintains SZA’s viscous vocals, supplementing SZA’s ballad-style vocal approach with a series of tasteful piano notes that contribute to the re-imagination’s classification as a house funk number. Harris’ revamp shimmers with ‘70s inspired tones, rendering the remix a welcome sonic blast from the past.
