Calvin Harris has teamed up with former Fifth Harmony member and rising solo star Normani for some musical magic. The pair have hinted at a collaboration for a while now, and they’ve finally delivered—dropping not one, but two new tracks in the package, Calvin x Normani.
“Checklist” and “Slow Down” are two very different songs, but both have the potential to be straight-up smashes. “Checklist,” which also brings WizKid along for the ride, finds Normani feeling her dancehall swag in a major way. “You tryna keep me like a checklist / Slow whine, slow whine / Body cold like a necklace,” she sings on the chorus, as the catchy production slaps underneath.
On the flipside, “Slow Down” finds Harris leaning into the twinkly, disco-tinged drum ’n’ bass sound of recent hits like “Promises” and “One Kiss.” Normani matches the vibe with sultry lines: “I’m still a kid and I’m stealing your time / But I still feel your heart, so I’m asking / Could you just be real? Don’t be scared to feel this.”
Both tracks prove that everything Harris touches turns to gold, and that Normani’s easily one of the most promising pop acts in the game. Stream Calvin x Normani below:
