Calvin Harris partners with pop superpowers Halsey, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell for ‘Stay With Me’
“Stay With Me” should come with a red carpet.
Just two weeks after releasing Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2‘s sophomore single, Calvin Harris can be found sidling up with Halsey, Justin Timberlake, and Pharrell for the disco-infused third preview of the LP. Whereas “Potion“—Funk Wav‘s debut single featuring Dua Lipa and Young Thug—and its follow-up, “New Money” with 21 Savage, surfaced as slow-burning members of the album’s evolving rollout, “Stay With Me” is a bolt of energy engineered for the dance floor. Vocals from each of the three pop superpowers play with guitar chords and plush bass on the funky number. The only thing that’s missing? The disco ball.
“Stay With Me” marks Harris’ first official collaboration with both Halsey and Timberlake, though the Funk Wav tastemaker memorably recast the former’s 2017 single, “Alone,” in 2018. Meanwhile, it’s Harris’ third all-time team up with Pharrell, who guested on two Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 constituents, “Heatstroke” and “Feels.” Stream “Stay With Me” below as the sands in the hourglass separating the present moment from Vol. 2‘s August 5 arrival continue to fall.
